It seems more and more brides-to-be are opening up to straying away from the typical white diamond engagement ring. The Sex and the City movie helped put black diamonds on the map a few years ago and the trend isn’t going away. Ice.com often gets requests for more black diamond engagement rings….so I present to you our new Moonlight Black Bridal Collection.
This affordable collection of engagement rings ranges from as low as $235 to $1295. About half of the collection highlights a center black diamond with white diamond accents on the band. There are also several featuring 3 main black diamond stones representing the couple’s past, present and future together.
Some of you might have seen a couple of months ago Kim Kardashian was on the cover of OK! Magazine with details of the engagement ring she wanted and details on her wedding. This was all before she was proposed to! We won’t believe the rumor mill that this is true but what is true is that NBA basketball player Kris Humphries proposed to Kim with a 20.5 carat $2 Million Emerald cut engagement ring.”It’s the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen. It’s perfect” said Kardashian to People Magazine.
In classic Kim style, the ring is extravagant to say the least. Many of the gossip reports are talking about the expensive price tag of the ring and how it costs half the price of her Beverly Hills home. She is wearing a HOUSE on her finger!
Well she can afford it so who are we to judge. At the end of the day, we wish them all the best.
Just in time for wedding season, this Friday sees the premiere of the new romantic comedy Something Borrowed starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski and Colin Egglesfield. It follows the twists and turns in the space between friendship and love and when those boundaries are tested.
The movie comes from the best selling novel by Emily Giffin. For those who have read the book & her follow-up Something Blue know that you are in for a hilarious tearjerker.
I’ve often said that there are few classier pieces of jewelry than a pair of diamond studs like the ones featured in the movie, they also happen to be Ice.com earrings. :) We’re thrilled to have our earrings in the movie, we also featured some other wedding jewelry inspired by the movie at Ice.com. Speaking about wedding jewelry, take a closer look at the photo of Kate’s engagement ring. Gorgeous!
I’m not getting married anytime soon, but some of the jewelry on that page is pretty tempting anyway. I think I may have to reinterpret the classic nuptial phase that inspired the movie:
Valentine’s Day is a classic day for wedding proposals. Did you get engaged this Valentine’s Day? If so, congratulations! You’ll have so much planning to do and things to think about. Let me help you lessen the stress by making a few jewelry recommendations for the big day.
A consistently elegant choice, a diamond-encrusted band is extremely impressive without making the wearer appear to be a showoff. Your clothes might match this sentiment, with tiny details and low-key designers making the outfit, like a TSE dress matched up with traditional diamond studs, an ageless Bottega Veneta bag, subtle Bvlgari sunglasses, and topped off with a whisper of Chanel perfume.
Who needs one best friend when you can have at least three? If you prefer multi-stone engagement rings, chances are youâ€™re into wearing flashy pieces on other parts of your body, too. When going out, you might favor a Betsey Johnson dress worn with Tory Burch wedges and a metallic bag to get yourself noticed, and colorful stones like a pair of emerald earrings or a garnet necklace add zing to your look.
Marquis (or marquise) cuts are wonderful because their shape often makes the diamond look larger than it actually is. The savvy woman who decides on this cut might make equally as calculated choices in her wardrobe, choosing pieces for their ability to tastefully and conservatively flatter, like a Theory dress paired with pearl earrings and Stuart Weitzman heels, matched with a pashmina and a suede clutch.
No matter what your style, there’s a wedding ring out there that will match the perfection of your special day.
