A watch is a piece of jewelry that everyone needs to have and makes a great gift for anyone on your list. With the holidays just around the corner I highly recommend giving a watch and maybe get one for yourself too. ;) There are so many men’s and women’s styles available whether their style is classy, sporty or more trendy.

Hot watch trends this year are big chunky metal watches for women. Metal watches are not just in silver anymore. Pink (Rose Gold) colored watches are huge right now as well as bronze, gold and blue metals. Tortoise shell is also very hot right now in watches and Michael Kors (pictured right) does it right.

Explore all new designer watches at Ice for both men and women. Plus almost all styles are now on sale up to 60% off!

 

Pink Gold Gets Engaged

Isn’t it refreshing when a new trend comes along that stirs things up. Today, I want to talk about engagement rings and wedding bands. For the longest time yellow gold has rocked the settings of these bridal rings. In the last two two decades there’s been a switch towards white gold and platinum bands. Now, I’m delighted that pink (rose) gold has been sneaking it’s way into the bridal department.

 

We’ve all been falling in love with pink gold in right hand rings, pendants, bracelets, etc but now it’s making it’s way into engagement rings and wedding bands. Ice carries many pink gold rings featuring pink morganite stones that have been fan favorites for awhile. We’ve been hearing from a lot of our customers that they’ve been using them as engagement rings. We LOVE this idea! So we thought why not add a couple new engagement rings with diamonds set in pink gold.

 

The first one I want to show you (pictured right) is a stunning diamond ring. The pink gold setting gives it a vintage style yet feels very contemporary since it’s not common which makes this a much-desired style for brides. Our other diamond pink gold ring (pictured below) comes in a set with the wedding band in a much more traditional style. This is for the classic bride that is looking for something a little more unique for her ring without going too out there.

Top 5 Jewelry Trends for Fall 2012

Fall always gets a bad wrap because it triggers that back to school feeling, end of Summer and the beginning of cold weather. But I have to say, it’s one of my favorite seasons. It’s beautiful and the fashion is always amazing! I want to share with you five jewelry trends that are hot for this Fall.

1. Gold – I’ve written previously about how yellow gold jewelry is very ‘in’ right now and I will repeat myself. Put on your yellow gold! It’s classic, it’s versatile and it’s very chic right now. If yellow gold really isn’t your thing then try out rose (pink) gold jewelry. It goes well with many skin tones and outfits. So ladies, leave the white gold & silver aside this year and strut around in yellow & rose gold.

2. Statement Pieces – Go big or go home this Fall! It’s no time to be shy with your baubles. In the necklaces department you’ve got bib necklaces, large pendants and chokers to stand out in. Chandelier earrings are big, beautiful and very feminine.

3. Layer Your Jewels – Layering bracelets is a must! I’m all for stacking bangles to make a bold statement. It’s a fun look that really grabs attention. But layering doesn’t have to end there…experiment with layering necklaces. Long and short pendants paired together. Big statement pieces paired with simple pendants. Play around with different looks to find the style that suits you best.

4. Colored Diamonds – Yes, we all know nothing compares to a sparkly white diamond BUT it’s time to embrace the rainbow of colors diamonds are available in. This Fall, try out chocolate diamonds (a favorite of our Facebook fans), green diamonds and blue diamonds.

5. Nature Inspired Jewelry – Nature-toned colors are always popular in Fall such as orange, brown and green. You can show off these colors with beautiful gemstones such as carnelian, smoky quartz and drusy jewelry. Add some leaf, feather and floral designs in your jewelry for a nature inspired look.

There you have it! These are some of favorite jewelry trends we’ll be rocking this Fall. Which of these will you be wearing?

 

Ice Donates to Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every year,  Ice spreads the word about the disease and lends a helping hand. This year, we’re donating 10% of proceeds from our special Live Pink Collection of pink jewelry to the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC).

The NBCC has declared a deadline to end breast cancer, setting a  target of January 1, 2020. “This is not a new idea for us. Our mission for almost 20 years has been the eradication of breast cancer. For decades, we’ve been fighting cancer with hope. For decades the lives of our daughters, mothers, and friends have been in the hands of hope. It isn’t working. That’s why NBCC launched Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®, a call to action for policy makers, researchers, breast cancer advocates and other stakeholders to end the disease by January 1, 2020.  Today we have a strategic plan of action to achieve Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®.”

We’re proudly wearing pink throughout the month of October, and we hope you’ll join us.  Ice has a wide selection of pink jewelry from our Live Pink Collection that includes pink diamond stud earrings (pictured right), pink gold jewelry, pink sapphire jewelry & much more. When you place an order through the Live Pink Collection,  Ice will donate 10% of proceeds to NBCC.

And if you only do one thing, PLEASE be sure to get examined every year. Whether you do regular self-examination, clinical exam or a mammogram. It could save your life.

 

Editor’s Picks for Fall

For once I will not do ALL the talking writing today. I’m going to let our Senior Buyer at Ice, Alyson Raynard, tell you what she chose for the Editor’s Picks section on Ice.

Alyson highlights four major jewelry trends to keep an eye on:

Purple Amethyst Ring
Purple is a hot Fall color to add to your jewelry

Pink Metals: “Rose gold and pink rhodium create a fresh new look for customers looking for something new and exciting to add to their jewelry wardrobe.” Not many people have rose gold in their jewelry collections YET so now’s the time to add it. It’s one of my favorite looks for Fall.

Animal Prints: “They never seem to go out of style. Here we’ve taken them to the next level by finding sterling silver jewelry covered with the classic printed patterns.” You can’t go through a magazine or store without seeing animal print these days. Not even a week goes by without one of the Kardashians wearing animal print. You should have at least 1-2 animal print pieces in your wardrobe or accessories this Fall. Since it never goes out of style you can wear the look for years to come.

Fall Colors: “Among the  hot color trends this fall are bold blues, purples, orange and muted greens which we try to capture in a variety of looks.” Purple Amethyst and green diamond jewelry are really popular at Ice right now.

Black & White: “This remains a hot combo for Fall. Classic black and white always pair well together for that never miss hit.” With the popularity in black diamonds in recent years it’s been much more glamorous to wear black & white jewelry.

5 Tips for Wearing Rose Gold this Fall

One of the hottest jewelry trends right now is Rose Gold, also known as Pink Gold. It’s been around for centuries but it’s making a big comeback and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s gorgeous! This unique precious metal gives an instantaneous warm and romantic feel to any look.

I will be decked out in Rose Gold (and other pink metals such as Pink Rhodium) this Fall and wanted to share a few tips on how you can wear Rose Gold jewelry with your Fall wardrobe.

1. Match it with copper toned accessories. Rose Gold contains copper, actually all golds do because gold is such a soft metal. There is a higher level of copper in Rose Gold which gives it it’s warm color. So naturally any copper hued purses, belts or shoes would match beautifully with rose-hued jewelry.

2. Mix it Up! Cartier started the love affair with yellow, white & rose golds by creating a threesome of golds in one piece of jewelry. Since not many people might have one piece of jewelry with all three golds, it’s much easier to take what you already have to create this look. Put on white, yellow and rose gold bangles on your wrist or layer different colored gold necklaces in different lengths.

3. Wear it with Fall colored clothing in earth tones such as brown, tan and grey. Another fabulous color to pair it with is blue! What a stunning contrast this makes. Whether it’s navy, cobalt or turquoise, this look is very rich. Try it!

4. Nail the Rose Gold look by pairing rings with nude nail polish for a classic look. For a more matchy matchy look there are lots of polishes in rose gold hues – any metallic pink will work nicely.  For a more dramatic look you can pair our Morganite & black diamond ring with black nail polish which looks hot! If black polish is not your thing, you can try other dark polishes like charcoal for a deep contrast.

5. Pair it with diamonds! The combination of diamonds, whether they are white or black diamonds, with rose gold really makes the rosy color pop and the diamonds sparkle like crazy. It’s a gorgeous combination and we have plenty of Rose Gold pieces featuring diamonds to choose from.

We’d love to hear how you like to wear your favorite Rose Gold jewelry. Better yet, post a picture on our Facebook wall or Tweet it to us.
