Turkey day is approaching, which means it’s time to consider what you’re wearing to one of the biggest meals of the year. Selecting the perfect piece of jewelry and outfit can sometimes seem a bit daunting, but this year there are a few trends that will easily complement your fall wardrobe. Continue reading
Rings have always been one of our favorite jewelry categories. From engagement rings to cocktail rings to dainty right hand rings, we love them all! But I do want to remind you about the sometimes forgotten pinky finger. Rings are most commonly adorned on the “ring finger”, your middle finger or your thumb. I think it’s time you give some love to your little pinky.
We’ve seen our favorite fashionable stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lopez in huge cocktail rings on their pinkies. Depending on your personal style or your outfit you can pretty much pull off any kind of ring on your pinky. We love chunky rings especially with large gemstones like this Purple Amethyst ring for a night out (pictured below). Delicate simple bands are great for everyday. I stacked a couple of bands for an extra boost of color you can see in the pic above.
We have lots of rings now available in smaller ring sizes such as 4 and 5 to fit your pinky. Check out our ring selection to find the right size for you. Whenever I find a fabulous ring that isn’t available in my size I don’t let that small detail effect me. I just get a smaller size for my pinky or larger for my thumb. Pinky rings will be a big trend in 2013. Will you be trying it out?
Tell us how you wear your favorite rings.
For jewelry lovers, it’s rare that one is enough. How often do you wear just one piece of jewelry at a time? Yes, there’s always a bold statement piece that doesn’t need any supporting jewels but chances are you want to wear multiple pieces together. I LOVE the layered jewelry look. Don’t you? Stacking rings, bracelets and layering necklaces is guaranteed to grab attention…not to mention it saves you the time of choosing only 1 or 2 pieces to wear. Your jewelry wants to get out of the box and play with the others so why not stack them up with these new stackable rings at Ice.
Our latest stackable rings come in blue, pink & yellow sapphire as well as Tsavorite (pictured right). Have you heart of Tsavorite? It’s a beautiful green gemstone in the garnet family. I love the shape of these rings. They are sold individually so you can get just the colors you like and mix and match which ones you wear together to get many different looks.
If these rings aren’t your style, Ice has a wide assortment of colorful and sparkly stackable rings to choose from. Which colorful rings would you stack together?
September is the month of season finale’s of your favorite summer TV shows like Entourage, True Blood and Breaking Bad but what we’ve all been waiting for is for our favorite Fall TV shows to premiere. So many Fall shows to keep your fashionable eye out for wardrobe inspiration. Here are some of our picks for most fashionable TV shows to stay tuned for.
Gossip Girl: Blaire and Serena may be the Queen B’s of the Upper Eastside but they sure know how to dress. You can expect nothing but the best on them from huge designer purses, to big bold necklaces, rings, breathtaking dresses and shoes!! Spoiler Alert! The beautiful Elizabeth Hurley is joining the cast this season and I’m sure she’ll look fabulous.
New Girl: This is a new comedy starring my girl crush Zooey Deschanel. With a last name with Chanel in it you know it’s in her genes to be stylish. Zooey pulls of the adorably cute yet sexy look perfectly and after watching a preview for this show her personal style definitely shines through in her character Jessica Day. The premise of the show is Jessica catches her boyfriend cheating and then moves in with three single guys. Let the good times begin! Can’t wait to watch this.
Charlie’s Angels: Yup, they redid this classic and it actually doesn’t look bad. In the trailer I was pleasantly surprised with how stylish the angels are and loved the long dangly earrings they were sporting. How they run around in them, I don’t know, but they pull it off. I loved the movies with Drew Barrymore and she’s actually the producer of this series so it should be good.
Desperate Housewives: The final season of the show has arrived and the ladies of Wisteria Lane haven’t looked better. Gabrielle and Bree are always the most put together woman on the block in my opinion. I wonder if there will be any new additions to the cast we should be watching out for. I smell drama.
What shows are you most looking forward to watching this Fall?

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.
What do you think of the new Gallery 10 Collection? Which pieces in the collection are your favorite?
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and some people may still be searching for the perfect piece of jewelry to give. Instead of purchasing predictable heart-shaped bling, why not choose an unexpected item that will bring a smile to any woman’s face?
For a fresh twist on Valentine’s symbolism, opt for a piece that features cute “XO” depictions. This charming detail is romantic and modern.
Birthstone jewelry can be a personalized present that doesn’t rely on the pink-colored or heart-shaped conventions. If your sweetie is born in February, consider amethyst earrings.
While some may view black as the anti-Valentine’s Day color, black diamonds are a chic and modern gift for this romantic holiday. They will add understated sparkle and edgy glamour to any ensemble, and she’ll surely wear the gems year-round!
Of course, there are certain traditions that should not be ignored. Pick up some flowers and chocolates to accompany the jewelry – and don’t forget a card!
When it comes to animalistic jewelry, few style are as alluring as snake-inspired pieces. But when rocking serpent-shaped pieces, there are three things to keep in mind for a truly fantastic look.
1. Stick to one animal. If wearing a snake bangle bracelet, refrain from pairing it with a bird-shaped pendant or a leopard print dress. Instead opt for a simple ensemble and basic accessories that won’t detract from or contrast with the unique jewelry.
2. Don’t over-indulge. Piling on a plethora of snake-inspired pieces can be overwhelming. One great serpent-shaped statement piece, however, can go a long way.
3. Pick the right occasion. A chunky snake-shaped bracelet may be too funky for a black-tie affair, but a delicate ring would look simply stunning.
Snake-inspired jewelry is great for any season, so pick-up a piece today and embrace your wild side.
With Valentine’s Day a month away, now is the time to show how much you care for your sweetheart with a promise ring. This piece of jewelry is perfect for those who want to show their love for their sweeties (but aren’t ready to tie the knot quite yet).
Those who think a proposal may be on the horizon may want to opt for a diamond-encrusted eternity band. This dazzling item is sure to sparkle, but the subtle piece will pair perfectly with an engagement ring or wedding band in the future.
Whether you choose a simple metallic ring or a blinged out band, you can have your initials or your anniversary date engraved on the inside of the ring for a personal touch.

As the holiday season gets underway, many will start receiving invitations to festive parties and soirees, so of course it’s essential to look your best, and what better way to do that than by opting for the perfect piece of jewelry.
Black diamonds have been a huge trend this fall. Pair them with rubies and they’ll serve you well this winter, too. Ruby earrings with a black diamond bangle bracelet make a perfect combination – and you won’t look like you’re trying to hard (an essential component of looking good).
Wear a black diamond cocktail ring and don a ruby bracelet on the opposite wrist. The glittering pieces will be festive, not tacky. They’ll also serve as great conversation starter if you’re mingling with new people.
The holidays are the time to kick it into full-on glamour mode. The sign of a true fashionista is taking a traditional item and using it in an unconventional way. Show your stuff when it counts and weave a ruby or black diamond necklace into an updo and pair the look with sparkling diamond earrings.
The best part about pairing black and red is that they easily complement a little black dress or a pair of dark denim jeans and plush fur coat.
