What You'll Get
If diamonds are a girl's best friend, cubic zirconia are a girl's favorite younger sister, the one she can talk to about everything, even how Bradley tried to kiss her in Astronomy lab. Today's deal lets girls (and guys) use the latter to dazzling yet affordable effect this Valentine's Day. For $20, today's deal gets you $40 worth of costume jewelry at Ice Fabulous Costume Jewelry in Bethesda. This Groupon is good for in-store jewelry purchases only, so you won't be able to squeeze any faux-treasure through your modem cable.
A well-placed splash of sparkle from Ice can transform even the dowdiest duds into formal wear while drawing the human eye to any place you want it to go. Draw attention to your slender wrists and away from your third eye with a 925 bangle studded with clear cubic zirconias ($52) or a large stone bracelet ($50). Likewise, you can show off the toned earlobes you worked so hard to achieve at boot camp with some platinum-bonded hoop earrings shining with Austrian crystal ($48). And nothing says "Hey, look, décolletage!" like a five-flower, cubic-zirconia necklace ($52). You can also get a two-tone black onyx pendant ($36) or square and round stackable rings ($32) without breaking your bling budget. The website offers only a sampling of what you'll find in-store, so be ready to browse, just like when you spent two hours at the pet store because you couldn't figure out which puppy took your wallet.
Ice Costume Jewelry prides itself on offering costume jewelry so authentic-looking that "only your jeweler knows it's faux." So besides giving you a glitzy glitter for Valentine's Day, Ice can also help corroborate the elaborate backstory you've concocted for this year's high-school reunion about being a millionaire astrophysicist spy who is married to a skilled maker of affordable costume jewelry.
Most of Ice Costume Jewelry's customers are too busy with their jewels to write online reviews, but Bethesda magazine highlighted what makes it great:
- They've primarily used their gems to serve the community, schools, charities and various organizations, "giving back" a portion of the proceeds. Faux diamonds, charm bracelets, rings, you name it, they have it, and all are made either from sterling silver or 14-karat gold. – Bethesda
