I rarely go a day without wearing my studs. They’re the perfect go-to accessory for any outfit, whether you’re going to work, the gym, night out or even walking down the aisle. As your favorite jewelry blogger, I feel it’s my duty to introduce you to a world of new sparkly studs. When we think of studs it’s normally classic white diamond (or cubic zirconia) that first come to mind but have you seen colored diamond studs?
If you ever wished to add a dash of color to your regular studs and keep the luxury of diamonds I highly recommend choosing a pair of colored diamond studs. I’ve told you about black diamonds, pink diamonds and blue diamonds but we just got a few new more colors of the diamond rainbow. Check out our latest green diamond studs that would look great on green or hazel eyed beauties. These red diamond studs are a deep red color that will blend in with your Fall wardrobe nicely. Lastly, these yellow diamond studs will glow brilliantly all year round in any season. These three new diamond studs are all 1/2 total diamond weight so they are a perfect for a light splash of color to put in your second (or third, etc) piercing if you’re wearing a larger earring in your primary piercing.
We all know diamond stud earrings are a classic staple to any jewelry collection – but let’s not forget about gemstone studs.
Ice.com has a wide assortment of colorful gemstone stud earrings perfect for Spring including Amethyst, Tanzanite, Citrine & much more. Two of our newest additions to the studs collection are these Opal Topaz and Tsavorite Topaz studs.
Who said you can’t wear white after labor day? Lauren Conrad crushes that myth with her feminine NOTTE by Marchesa’s white lace dress she wore at her “Sugar & Spice” book signing in New York City.
The young reality star and author paired the dress with a simple jeweled headband and simple earrings and ring. When wearing a delicate fabric such as lace you want to keep the jewels simple. You can be more daring with your accessories when wearing black lace but tone it down with white.
White lace is a fantastic new look for the winter white months. We recommend pairing it with simple pearl or diamond stud earrings.
We’re excited to test out this look ourselves. Will you be adding white lace to your winter wardrobe?
Nurses are an integral part of the health care system. They really keep it humming. My aunt Camille has been a nurse her whole career and now supervises teams of nurses. I recently asked her about what she and her co-workers wear for jewelry on the front lines of health care.
So, I bet that wearing scrubs all the time gets boring. How do nurses add sparkle to their work wear?
Well, not all nurses work on the floor or directly with patients. There are some nurses who don’t wear scrubs but the ones that do have a hard time adding a personal touch. Wearing protective gloves means that you really can’t wear big rings. Depending on the protocol at the workplace they might even require that nurses not wear rings at all. Our main goal is health and safety for everyone we care for – even ourselves! I think that earrings are probably the best way to add a unique touch.
When I started working in nursing almost 40 years ago we had to wear all white – you know the traditional nurses uniform. These days there are all kinds of patterns in scrubs and professional team wear that keep things from being too boring. I was recently in a pediatrician’s office and all the nurses there had on scrubs that the kids there loved.
Are there any trends in earrings that you’ve noticed on the nurses you work with? Diamond stud earrings have always been popular. I think that anything small and conservative is a good bet. Dangle or long tear drop earrings aren’t safe or suitable for the professional setting. You want to have earrings that are easy to keep clean.
What about down time? What about Friday night?!
Ha! Are you kidding?! Lot of nurses work 12 hour shifts and they’re pooped when the work is done. Just like lots of other women, they work hard for their families when they get home. On special occasions though, when they can have a night out, the nurses I work with love to be pampered. Something special like bold gem earrings – or a long necklace is a lot of fun. They want to wear something that is normally off limits at work.
