Before I get into everything that went on this week in our online community I’m excited to tell you about what’s coming up next week!

Exclusive Facebook Jewelry Collection

It’s no secret that we love our Facebook Fans. We truly appreciate all the feedback they give us plus we have a blast talking to them everyday. We always share great sales, sweepstakes, etc. with our fans but never until now did we offer an exclusive line of jewelry only available to our Facebook Fans.

Moss Aquamarine & Black Diamond Ring
Sneak Peak: One of the pieces of The Ones Collection exclusive to our Facebook Fans

We’re super excited about this stunning collection called The Ones.  It’s made up of one of a kind jewelry made of raw gemstones set in a unique setting. I’m not kidding when I say one of a kind. There is only ONE of each piece in this collection. So you need to act fast if you spot one you love.  Remember, you can only access these products if you’re a Facebook Fan. The collection is going live next week so stay tuned. You don’t want to miss this!

What’s Your Style

This week’s What’s Your Style was adorned with black diamond rings and it got one heck of a response. Our fans LOVE black diamonds, it’s undeniable. We asked our fans which of the nine rings was their fave and the ring with the most votes was a black diamond engagement ring (pictured right) from our Moonlight Bridal Collection.

Fan of the Week

I’d like to introduce our new Facebook Fan of the Week….Lindy Gordon! She posted a pic on our Facebook page of a ring she received from her “man of the house”. ; ) He surprised her for their fifth anniversary with a white & silver mist diamond ring in a bouquet of roses. How romantic! You could be our next Fan of the Week so be sure to chat with us and post pics on our Facebook wall.

Weekly RoundUp: Halloween & Fan of the Week

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.

Halloween

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.

We asked our Facebook fans to post pictures of their Halloween costumes and we got some adorable pics of their children and some sexy pin-up girls. One of the most unique costumes we saw this Halloween was posted on our Facebook page. Stick people!!!!  LOVE this.

Stick people Halloween costume
Stick person costume!! How cool is this??

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:

1. Devil heart pendant with diamonds

2. Snake bracelet

3. Spider earrings with black & white diamonds (pictured right)

Congrats Melissa!

Fan of the Week

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!

Weekly Roundup: Opals, Engagment Rings & Fan of the Week

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.

1. Opal & black diamond white gold ring (pictured ring)

2. Opal & pink sapphire white gold ring

3. Opal & Iolite white gold ring

Wanna see the What’s Your Style poll for yourself? Choose your favorite Opal piece here.

Favorite Engagement Ring Cuts

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!

Facebook fan of the WeekFan of the Week

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)

Ice Launch Party

Our Ice Cake!

Yesterday we unveiled the new look of Ice! Have you seen it yet? We were all in the festive mood in the Ice office yesterday. Employees dressed in our new brand colors; black, green and white. Of course all the ladies (and men) we’re sporting their favorite jewelry from Ice.

It was an exciting day to finally see the look of Ice transform from the original look that was created over 10 years ago to a brand new sleek and modern design. We are thrilled with how this makeover turned out! Isn’t it gorgeous?

As part of the celebration we took a break from our regular work schedule and gave a celebratory toast of bubbly with the entire company. The most delicious part of the day was when we got to dig into the chocolate cake and cupcakes. Yesterday also happened to be National Cupcake Day so we had to have some to celebrate – Made by yours truly 😉

Cupcakes!!

What we all loved the most about yesterday was hearing from our customers. Since we’ve launched the new site we’ve been flooded with Facebook comments, Tweets, blog posts from some of our favorite bloggers. It’s an incredible feeling to see all the support from the community. Thank you all so much for your kind words. Keep the comments coming! We want to hear more about what you think of the new Ice.

There’s also a few hours left to enter our Ice VIP Launch Party contest – RSVP to our Facebook event to enter to $500 at Ice!

To learn more about what’s new at Ice don’t forget to check out our post 5 Thinks You Didn’t Know About the New Ice or better yet visit the new Ice to see for yourself.

Happy Shopping!

Guest Stylist Erica Diamond Picks Winners from Ice

I am both thrilled and excited to announce that I have teamed up with Ice to create the Erica Diamond Collection of jewelry, inspired by the modern woman and mom.

As women, mothers, wives, partners, sisters, daughters and friends, we are all professional multi-taskers trying to look and feel our best. I have chosen a jewelry collection that is about celebrating womanhood around the world and recognizing the different facets of our lives… sexy, playful, elegant, edgy. That is this collection… simple, classy, versatile, modern, and AFFORDABLE. What could be better?

The challenge? The fun part? I wanted to keep the pieces below $150.00… a guilt free splurge! This collection is made up of fabulous, quality jewelry at incredible prices. Beauty and simplicity… these pieces can be worn around town, to mom-and-me play-dates, to the office, for drinks with friends, or date night. Whether you’re feeling classy or sexy, you will find something in this collection to go with that mood.

So here we go, a few of the highlights of my favorites…

  • My followers know I love a good hoop earring… it goes daytime, nighttime, anytime, with anything! I have found you the PERFECT hoops at the perfect price. Sexy and simple.
  •  

  • There’s nothing better for fall than these 4-carat London Blue Topaz Earrings… classy for daytime and nighttime! Simply gorgeous with a price that cannot be beat.
  •  

  • Because I’m all HEART, I have chosen two amazing heart pendants… Tiffany WHO? You will never take off this gorgeous 14K White Gold and Diamond Heart. Or what about a 1-Carat Ruby and Sterling Silver Heart Pendent to jazz up any crisp white shirt, plunging neckline or black fall turtle neck. Love love!
  •  

  • Treat yourself to a multi-gemstone ring with Citrine, Garnet, Topaz, Amethyst and Peridot gems! Brightens up any outfit! At $45.00 for all these stones, it’s a steal!
  •  

  • I’m loving my new Sterling Silver Diamond “E” Pendant. Yes, that’s both STERLING SILVER AND DIAMOND for $60.00. A great gift for any day, for a birthday or anniversary… hint hint to the partner in your life. Or even for your child!
  •  

  • But one of my favorites are the MOM & ME BRACELETS! If I had a daughter, she would be wearing one with me!! So if you’re a mommy to girls, go ahead and match your bracelets- Mommy and me bracelets- love it!
  •  

  • The 4 3/8 Carat Amethyst & White Topaz Sterling Silver Ring is fabulous because it instantly dresses up and adds pizzazz to any outfit– and the Belt Buckle ring with REAL white and black diamonds is a MUST-HAVE!
  •  

  • And finally, because I adore cuff bracelets, here are two great options… one for an elegant evening, and one for being FUNKY anytime!

 

I can’t wait for you to wear The Erica Diamond Collection for Ice. You will feel beautiful, strong and sexy… how every woman deserves to feel.
