Fleur de Lys Jewelry

Are you familiar with the Fleur-de-Lys symbol? It’s a uniquely designed lily flower used as a symbol associated with French royalty. It’s been seen in countless coat of arms and flags for centuries. Today, people are often using it as a decorative design in home decor, fashion and now even in jewelry.

Ice has a few Fleur-de-Lys jewelry pieces that our customers are raving about. One of the latest colored diamond trends right now is green diamonds which are found in several of our newest Fleur-de-Lys pieces. Pictured right you’ll see a green and white diamond pendant featuring the beautiful symbol. If you’re looking for more of a statement piece then you’ll love this Fleur-de-Lys ring with green, white AND red diamonds. Love the little red diamond accents in this piece. It’s a wide ring that will instantly grab attention without being too flashy. Gorgeous!

If green diamonds are not your thing, maybe you’ll fall in love with black diamonds like I have. Take a look at this black & white diamond Fleur-de-Lys ring and this stunning black diamond pendant.

Would you wear the Fleur-de-Lys symbol? Next time, you put on this symbol and someone asks what it is, don’t forget to say Fleur-de-Lys with a French accent, it makes it more fun to wear. ; )

 

 

Get These Emmy Looks For Less

Yesterday we highlighted some of our favorite jewelry from the Emmy Awards. Some of you asked where you could get similar looks so we’re happy to help. We couldn’t help but notice these pieces of jewelry closely resembled some at Ice which we highlighted in the images below. Who doesn’t want to have red carpet worthy looks…at a fraction of the cost?

Floral Jewelry

One of the most attractive couples of the evening was Heidi Klum and her husband Seal. It’s always hard to predict what Heidi will show up wearing, her style is so diverse but she always looks incredible. Although her dress was quite the attention grabber, our eyes were drawn to the huge floral earrings and ring she wore. A much more affordable alternative if you want to achieve this look would be with our purple and white CZ earrings and matching ring from our Gallery 10 Collection.

 

 

Multi-Gemstone

The evening was held together by one woman….Jane Lynch. The Glee star was funny and entertaining without the crude controversial punch lines of many previous award show hosts. This is the type of host we’ve been waiting for. Normally, Jane Lynch isn’t a celeb we have our style eyes on but she was looking fab Sunday night changing into several gowns and jewelry.  (She even referenced the Spanx she was wearing…hilarious!) Her red carpet look was our favorite. She wore an eggplant colored strapless gown with multi-gemstone jewelry. Her earrings were a cluster of color similar to these multi-gem silver earrings.

Black Diamonds

In our previous post we mentioned some edgy pieces of jewelry that caught our eye. Gwyneth was one of the several women who wore black diamond jewelry and paired it with a sexy Emilio Pucci dress. She wore black diamond drop earrings that were surrounded by sparkly white diamonds. They bare a striking resemblance to our 2 carat black and white diamond earrings.

Cuff Bracelet

Sofia Vergara was an all around winner Sunday night. She was one of the best dressed, her show Modern Family won award after award and her jewelry was to die for. She wore huge Columbian emerald earrings creating a nice contrast with her coral gown. She also accessorized with a fabulous yellow gold cuff bracelet which looks a lot like one of my favorite cuffs at Ice.

Gallery 10 Collection

Talk about making a statement! The items in the new Gallery 10 Collection know how to get attention.

These pieces were inspired by European styles by taking simple designs such as flowers and heart jewelry and adding a little twist to them. This has left a bold luxurious look that will have everyone giving you a double take to check out your jewels.

Each item is well finished using high quality CZ in vibrant purple and classic black & white with rhodium plating in black and rose. The rose and purple color combinations is stunning in person!

Certain elements of these items like the rose metals and the abstract designs are very on-trend right now but these pieces are going to be stylish for many years to come.
