It’s an Iced Christmas: My Jewelry Must-Haves
My mom used to tell me when I started buying jewelry back in the 80’s that if you’re going buy jewelry, buy the real thing. This Christmas season, I scoped out leading jewelers for both price and quality, and then selections of styles to choose from.
Out of the many jewelers there are I decided to make my Christmas a merry one by shopping online at www.ice.com. This is a 1/2 carat diamond sterling silver bracelet, which caught my eye. It has a polished finish and weighs in at 21.5 grams, heavier than the last bracelet I purchased from Daniel’s Jeweler that had gotten broken back in September. This is considered among www.ice.com‘s collection of tennis bracelets. It has a I2 I3 clarity and is quite beautiful. Retailing for $270, you can add this beautiful piece to your jewelry collection for $135, or for five payments of $27.
Next on the list of my jewelry must-haves, I chose this yellow gold 1/10 carat diamond ring. Probably the first gold ring I’ve purchased in a very long time. This ring has received positive reviews on www.ice.com, and the price is one you can’t get away from. The ring has a sweet polished finished, weighs in at 3.8 grams but the weight does vary depending on individual ring size. It’s polished with a I1 clarity. It has a total of 28 little precious diamonds, a gorgeous golden bling for the true woman at heart. Retailing at $450, you can own this jewel for $225 or for five payments of $45 at www.ice.com.
www.ice.com makes buying diamond jewelry easy, especially if you’re like me and have to shop on a budget. What I look for when I purchase silver and gold jewelry is its staying power. How it holds up to normal wear and tear. I recommend staying away from silvertone and goldtone as they tend to wear very quickly. Jewelry that is not pure gold tends to be metal and the color tends to diminish — just in my previous experience.
With every piece of jewelry I purchase I question it’s craftsmanship, the material, and its authenticity, which lets me know if I’m buying from a reputable and knowledgable jeweler.
Let your next jewelry purchase be one that you’ll always remember.
