Top 5 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. You’ve probably noticed store aisles of stuffed animals, chocolates & flowers but we all know what women really want… jewelry. There are so many different options to choose from for jewelry gifts. Men normally tend to stick with the traditional heart shaped red gemstone pieces….which are cute and we’d be happy to receive any of them. But this year, we’d love to receive any of these non-traditional Valentine’s Day gifts that still feel romantic without over-doing the typical Valentine’s Day themes.

1. Watches: Big watches are very in right now, also known as “boyfriend watches”. The style is to have a large  face on the watch with a bulky metal band. Yellow & Rose Gold are hot watch colors right now so definitely consider this as an option. If you’re not sure if she likes colored gold, you could always opt for this white Michael Kors watch.

2. Studs: This is a great gift idea! Any woman would be thrilled to receive a pair of sparkly diamond studs or colorful gemstone studs. Simple with a big impact!

3. Statement Bracelet: Girls love receiving large jewelry pieces from their man. I highly recommend a stylish designer bracelet like this Vita Fede one (pictured below). I am a big rose gold fan and it makes a nice tie in with the romance of Valentine’s Day but with a modern, more stylish turn with this chain-link design.

4. Heart Ring: Ok I had to put at least one heart shaped piece of jewelry on this list but it’s not your traditional heart. This stylish smokey quartz ring is set in a fierce looking hear shape. Love the diamonds surrounding the ring to give it some extra sparkle.

5. The Splurge gift: A fabulous diamond piece of jewelry is always the best answer. A way to say I love you without a heart piece is with a beautiful infinity symbol. How beautiful is this shiny diamond infinity necklace?

Of course, if you’re ready to take the leap, an engagement ring would also be nice.

One Day Inspired Jewelry

I’m a sucker for romance. Who isn’t, really? So I have been eagerly anticipating the premiere of the movie One Day starting the lovely Anne Hathaway and the charming Jim Sturgess.  The movie, based on the international best-selling novel by David Nichols, spans a 20 year friendship between the two lead characters Emma and Dexter. The two get together once a year since the day they met in 1988.

We loved seeing the fashion & jewelry trends spanning the 20 years in which the film takes place in. Ice put together a collection of 15 jewelry pieces inspired by One Day. The collection includes both classic and whimsical pieces that can look fabulous today as they might have 20 years ago. These timeless pieces include hoop earrings similar to the ones Emma is seen wearing several times over the years, lots of heart jewelry to pair with the love theme and much more. We’ve marked down these pieces by 20% for you to enjoy

Are you planning on seeing the movie One Day? It starts in theaters nationwide this weekend, August 19th.

* Fun Feature on the One Day website is an interactive timeline of what was going on in the world every year on the day they met up on the 20 years the movie takes place in. Check it out here.

In 1999, the year Ice.com was founded, the #1 song on the radio was Jennifer Lopez’s “If you had my love” (loved this song!) and Richard Gere (so handsome!) was People’s Sexiest Man.

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.

Statement Bracelets To Go With Your LBD

As we all know a little black dress is a must-have in your closet. Even if you only have one or two LBDs the trick to changing up the look for each occasion is with your accessories. Often times, people think of their LBD as safe or boring. Ladies, wearing all black is not boring, it’s the prefect opportunity to have fun with your look. Let your accessories stand out! I love putting on one main statement piece and going a little simpler on the rest of the accessories. A great statement piece is this new black & white diamond cuff bracelet from Ice.

1/4 Carat Black & White Diamond Wide Cuff

As soon as I saw these new bracelets at Ice I knew they would be the perfect accessory for a LBD. Of course you can wear them with other outfits but I can’t help but imagine how gorgeous they would look in all black on a nice evening out or a fancy schmancy party. This Diamond Heart Bangle will add a nice touch of romance and class to your outfit – sure to grab the attention of many.
