Halloween Jewelry Spooktacular

Halloween’s right around the corner! Have you gotten your costume or outfit ready for a spooktacular weekend? At Ice.com, we’ve all been talking about our costumes and what we are doing this year to celebrate a good time. If you haven’t had time to get a costume ready or are still confused, we will help with some easy costume ideas. If you are going to a dressy, sleek party, we have some great Halloween style jewelry to pair with a dark and mysterious dress.

So you must be curious what the Ice.com team is dressing up as for Halloween right?

  • Dustin is going to be a safari guide and his wife and baby are going to be mommy and baby kangaroo!
  • My girlfriend and I are going to be Raggedy Ann and Andy, pretty cheesy right?
  • Leah and her group are going as a flock of my little pony’s, who would’ve thought?
  • Ian and his wife are going as Princess Leia and Han Solo…may the force be with them.

Some of us are trick-or-treating, others are going to costume parties and some plan to stay in their costume all weekend! It’s going to be an exciting weekend of scares and spooks. If you’re having trouble deciding on a costume, fear not, we have you covered. Try out one of these three easy costume ideas. If they don’t work out hopefully they can help stem an idea.

1. Zombies (best done in groups): just get some old clothes, rip em up and get em dirty. Add some smears of fake blood wherever you see fit. To top it all off practice walking with a little limp or drag one of your legs behind you and grunt a lot. You can also say “brrraaaaains” as many times as you like.
2. Greek God/Goddess: This is one step up from a toga. Grab yourself a white sheet and create a custom toga however you like. Tie a gold belt around your waist and find some fake wire leaves to wrap around your arms and head. Adorn with gold snake jewelry for added effect.
3. Waldo: Get a red and white striped shirt, blue jeans, red beany and big circular black glasses. The point of this costume is to photo bomb everyone and to lose your friends throughout the night so they have to find you.
4. Fortune Teller: All you need is a cheap muumuu (Savers/Goodwill), a scarf or turban, sandals, makeup and some bling. You can make a crystal ball using a goldfish bowl and glue a bunch of glitter to the inside. The best part is you get to predict everyone’s future and fortune all night.
5. Miss America (for the ladies…or brave men): Choose an old prom or flashy dress, get a sash and crown and sprinkle glitter all over the sash. Don’t forget about your parade wave, it seals the deal.

Now, if you are one who likes to get all dressed up in a mysterious and dark dress (maybe some black lipstick and eye liner) for Halloween, we have some great jewelry pieces to help bring out the spooky, yet sexy look.

1. We especially like black/black & white themed jewelry for Halloween so check out this black diamond spider pendant. Stylish and spooky.
2. Next we have a black and white diamond figure eight pattern silver ring. This super-sized cocktail ring pairs perfectly with the spider pendant and adds a spooky sparkle to your finger. Pair it with some dark black nail polish for the perfect effect.
3. Make sure your eyes stand out with these all black stainless steel dangle earrings. The intricate design adds a bit of mystery to your midnight outfit.
4. Last, but not least, we have a black and white diamond snake bangle bracelet. We know an outfit is great with spiders, but it’s even better with snakes and spiders.

We will be having a great time this Halloween weekend at Ice.com. It will be full of creepy costumes, spooky parties and trick or treating until the wolves are howling. We want you to have a great weekend too so remember to be safe and most importantly, have fun! We’d love it if you sent us pictures of your costumes and we will be sure to do the same.

Tell us about your costume, what you’ll be doing this weekend or the jewelry you’ll be wearing. We like to hear it all. As always, thanks for reading and have a spooktacular Halloween weekend!

5 Fun Facts About Opals, The October Birthstone

October’s Opals are quite the unique gemstone. They definitely don’t resemble many of the traditional gemstones we’re most familiar with and they look like you’re staring into a crystal ball. Come learn how to predict the future (your happiness) with opal facts and knowledge.

1. History: Thousands of years ago, rulers often wore the glittering orbs to guard their power and ensure their safety. These stones were placed in their crowns to protect themselves from enemies and ward off evil. At times, opals were even ground up and consumed to protect an individual from nightmares and evil spirits (although we don’t recommend this). In modern times opals are known to bring about happiness and confidence for the wearer.

2. Play of Color: Opals are most commonly found in ‘white,’ however within these white opals there is a rainbow-like iridescence which changes the colors that appear in the stone depending on the angle it is viewed at giving the opal a crystal ball look.

4. Opals come in many types: Mainly you can find opals in white, but you may find black opals, fire opals and crystal opals. Both the white and black variety have the play of color attribute, but fire opals do not. Ice also has stunning pink opal jewelry which is a type of fire opal. The best part about opals is that any angle you look at your stone, will show new amazing colors radiating within the piece.

3. Caring for opals: Since this stone is medium to soft you should be extra careful with it. I would recommend if you are wearing an opal ring to remove it when cleaning, working out or doing any sports and if you plan on going out be sure to put on makeup and hair products before you put your opal jewelry on. Do not use any harsh chemicals to clean it – simply wipe with a damp cloth. If you will not be wearing your opal jewelry for awhile, store it in a small plastic bag with a wet napkin so it doesn’t dry out and crack.

5. Opals on Mars: Several years ago in 2008, NASA announced the discovery of opal deposits on Mars! Since opal is made up of mostly water this means that Mars may have been wet for billions of years than previously thought which indicates it may have supported life. Fascinating!

Happy birthday to all the October babies this month! Check out our black, white and pink opals right here.

Be sure to comment below with any questions about opals or jewelry, we are always here to help you find the next best piece to add to your collection.

Have an Ice day!

Layered necklaces are the perfect last minute Christmas gift

Layered necklaces are the perfect Christmas gift. If you still haven’t started Christmas shopping, now is probably a good time to panic. Anyone who has put the inevitable, stress-fueled spending spree off until now is either an adrenaline junkie or a masochist.

But, before you spend the evening frantically shopping, we have a recommendation for the ladies on your list: layered necklaces.

These trendy and elegant necklaces are extremely popular right now, but they have been around for a while, which means that they won’t be outdated faster than you can wrap them. And though they might be a last-minute gift, they don’t have that I-didn’t-know-what-to-get-you-so-here’s-a-lime-green-scarf vibe.

For young and hip girls, opt for a long, chunky layered necklace. Look for one in a unique or funky material, like rose-plated gold, bronze or copper, or search for a piece that combines silver and gold – not only do they look great, but they’ll match the rest of the recipient’s jewelry, too.

Women with conservative tastes might prefer a more subtle layered necklace. A few strands of silver or gold will be the perfect way to update their wardrobe. And a delicate accessory that dresses up a look is always appreciated.
