What a fun week! All of us in the Ice office have been on a sugar high since Halloween and loving every minute of it. In this week’s roundup I’ll tell you all about Halloween, the jewelry our fans are raving about and our new fan of the week.
I love Halloween so I was super excited to help organize the festivities in the office. We decorated the office with fun and somewhat gruesome props. I was thrilled to see my co-workers dress up for the day. Some of the awesome costumes were the lovely Kate Middleton including a homemade fascinator which I adored. Cleopatra was dazzling. A creepy crypt crawler. I was dressed as a 1920’s flapper girl. Loved dressing up in all the jewelry and feathers.
What did you dress up as for Halloween? We’d love to see pics.
What’s Your Style?
In last week’s What’s Your Style I made a selection of Halloween themed jewelry and asked our Facebook & Twitter community to tell us which one would they wear to get them in the Halloween mood. The top 3 pieces that got the most votes from our online community were:
We often host many sweepstakes & giveaways throughout the year for our customers. This past summer we held the Hot Fun in the Summertime Sweepstakes and our winner Melissa Wetzler posted pictures of her prizes on our Facebook page this week. Congrats to Melissa on the win! She won a gorgeous pair of diamond stud earrings and a champagne & white diamond ring.
I have to say I love talking to the Ice community on Facebook and Twitter. What a great bunch of people we’ve got. The feedback we get is wonderful and I wanted to share some of the most popular conversations with you.
What’s your Style?
Every week we select nine pieces of jewelry and ask our Facebook community to choose which of the items from the theme fit their personal style. This week’s theme was Opal rings – here are the top 3 styles the community voted on.
We polled our Facebook community this week to asked “My favorite shape for a diamond or gemstone engagement ring is a _____ cut”. Every woman whether she’s engaged, married or single love talking about engagement rings. It’s probably the most important piece of jewelry many of us will own so we can’t help but get giddy over fantasizing what our dream ring would look like.
The women have spoken…55% prefer Princess cut (which is a square shape). I was surprised to see the second most popular cut was Emerald. Not sure if Kim Kardashian’s gigantic engagement ring she received less than a year ago had anything to do with it. Third place was Round cut. I’m happy that it only made it to 3rd so that means less women will have my future perfect engagement ring cut. Hope I didn’t jinx myself by writing it. ; )
Fan of the Week
Congrats to this week’s Fan of the Week – Jessica Humbert! She recently finished nursing school and celebrated with this beautiful pearl set from Ice including a necklace and earrings. “Nothing says classy like pearls! Looking forward to buying more classy jewelry from Ice” said Jessica. Enjoy the jewelry!
Don’t forget to chat with us on Facebook and Twitter. Have a lovely weekend!
Thank you to everyone who helped us reach over 200,000 Facebook fans this week! We’re thrilled to have so many amazing people on our Ice Facebook page leaving us comments, photos of their jewelry and interacting with us.

As I mentioned in a previous post, you could be chosen as our Facebook Fan of the Week just by posting on our wall. This week our Fan of the Week is Tonya Crain! Tonya posted not 1, not 2 but 3 photos on our Facebook page this week of all the Ice jewelry she recently received. She ordered the matching multi-gemstone earrings and pendant along with vibrant blue diamond and topaz ring.
Most Liked Product
Our Facebook fans heart’s are melting over this stunning blue sapphire & diamond heart ring. (pictured right) It was the most liked product over the last week with tons of fans forwarded the pic to their significant others as hints for upcoming gifts. No need to be subtle about what you want, go ahead and share these great jewelry finds.
Ladies of Ice
Yesterday some of the ladies who work at Ice, including myself received our new orders of jewelry from the SNO of Sweden collection. You should have seen the swarm of women running over to our desks to see what we got. It’s very clear…we’re all obsessed with this new collection. I personally got the Gray Glass Bead Bracelet which is super sparkly and perfect for a night out or in my case I’m going to wear it even with a t-shirt and jeans because I love it that much. I got another sparkly piece, the black glass bead bracelet which will go with anything and best of all you can layer it with other bracelets. Can you tell I like sparkly jewelry?
What’s great about the SNO of Sweden collection is there is something for everyone. One of my co-workers Elissa who has a very classic jewelry style got the seashell pearl bracelet and said “it’s very classic with an edge”. Tammy who is usually a minimalist in the jewelry department went with a long seashell pearl necklace that can also be worn shorter by doubling it. She didn’t waste any time and put it on right away.
I’m also showing off my morganite & diamond rose gold ring in the pic which I cannot stop staring at! (Not part of the SNO of Sweden collection but I still wanted to mention it since I love it)

Congrats Sharon! Hope you enjoy your prize. Keep us updated on what you order with your prize.
We adore our Facebook fans, they are always fun to engage with. We took a look at this part week’s most popular posts and wanted to share with you our favorite moments of the week.
The most liked product from our Facebook was without a doubt our new Morganite & Diamond Rose Gold ring. I wanted to share it with our lovely blog readers. Now, I will admit I am hesitant to post this ring on the blog and on Facebook for very selfish reasons. I was afraid it would sell out in my size and I wouldn’t be able to order it. Ahhh I feel better now that I confessed that. I also feel better now that I ordered it and it will be safe on my hand very soon. :) Oh and one more thing, this ring is on sale until July 24th! Click here!!
Our most commented post really warmed my heart. We’re looking into a few causes to give back to and we asked our community what causes they normally donate to. We were really happy with the response and love hearing about all our kind customers who help those in need. I want to hear from you too. Which causes do you give back to when given the chance?
One of the best parts of being on Facebook is checking out pics of your friends, so naturally we love when our Facebook fans post pics of themselves with our jewelry. We received a handful of pics this week on our wall including Jasmine Hajibad’s diamond ring pic which you can see here. Because of her pic and her lovely comment we decided to choose her as Fan of the Week. If you’re interested in becoming a Facebook Fan of the Week, posting pics on our wall is a surefire way to land that title.
Those are the highlights from this week. Like us on Facebook to stay updated on what’s going on.
