Cool Off With ‘Ice’ from Arnold’s Fine Jewelry

Published on Jul 31, 2020

Well, August 2020 is starting off hot. A perfect reason to get some “ice” from Arnold’s Fine Jewelry in Pasadena.

Ever wonder why diamonds are called “ice”?

Their colorless crystal appearance is like ice. In countless movies, including many 007 films like “Diamonds Are Forever,” they are referred to by the slang term “ice.”

On hot days like we’re experiencing, diamonds can actually cool the wearer because they are able to pull heat away from any warm object they come in contact with. Test this by pressing a diamond against your lips or skin – it will give you a cold and icy feeling.

Whatever the reason, Arnold’s Fine Jewelry has offered the finest diamonds to be set in engagement and wedding rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and more since it opened in 1910 by C.O. Arnold.

His grandson Bruce Arnold, a certified gemologist and member of the American Gem Society (AGS), leads a knowledgeable staff to help diamond buyers in aspects of choosing the “right” diamond – shape, cut, color, clarity and carat weight – but also in searching for the perfect gem for a particular setting.

Arnold’s Fine Jewelry’s experienced staff has the background and gemological training to do a professional job of evaluating the current value of precious keepsakes. Its jewelry designers can update or redesign a diamond family heirloom for future generations. Expert jewelers can repair cherished diamond pieces to make them look like new.

Arnold’s Fine Jewelry is at 350 S. Lake Ave., Suite 110, in The Colonnade. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. For more information, call (626) 795-8647 or visit
