Charles Albert Makes a Bold Statement

Charles Albert is one of the most creative jewelry designers I’ve seen. We’re not the only ones raving about his fabulous jewels, many celebs are gushing over his pieces too. Stars such as Kesha, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Joan Rivers and many more have all been seen wearing these baubles. Heidi Klum will be seen in the May 2012 issue of Allure Magazine sporting some of Charles Albert’s pieces. His jewelry frequently graces the pages of Vogue, InStyle, Marie Claire and Elle Magazine to name a few.

If you’re looking for something simple then this is not for you. These pieces are BIG!! Ice carries an array of bright colored agate cuff bracelets, rings and pendants. I’m loving the blue and green pieces! All of these agate pieces will slightly vary in color, size and shape since they are all genuine stones, making them even more unique.

Some of the darker pieces feature fossils in the form of pendants, earrings and rings. How cool is that? One of the most dramatic pieces is this black obsidian arrowhead necklace. (pictured below) You can wear this with an evening dress or dress up a simple t-shirt and jeans.

Top 3 Style Winners at American Music Awards

Last night’s 2011 American Music Awards was full of entertaining performances and stylish looks from the talented guests. Some of my favorite looks of the night were:

1. Jennifer Lopez: This woman is hot! She can dance better than most of her competitors who are half her age. She donned several outfits throughout the night including a barely-there Britney-esque bedazzled leotard during one of her performances. My favorite look of the night was the black and sheer gown she wore to accept her award. Her hair was pinned back in classic J.Lo style, exposing stunning drop earrings.  If you want to get the same look, try out these CZ earrings for an incredible sparkle.

2. Katy Perry: She’s fun, adorable and sexy all rolled up into one fabulously talented performer. She received a standing ovation during her performance while she wore a Jetsons-like pink ensemble. Her red carpet look was the real attention grabber. She wore a Vivienne Westwood gown on the red carpet with a amazing hairpiece designed by Westwood and accessorized with large cocktail rings.

3. Heidi Klum: There were lots of silver looks at the AMAs but the best use of silver award goes hands-down to supermodel Heidi Klum. Her cut-out knee-length dress was simple but made a big impact. Accessorize this look with silver jewelry with bright gemstones to really make them pop.

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.




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.
