What is iced out jewellery?
The term ‘iced out’ refers to any type of jewellery embedded with diamonds, emeralds, or precious stones. You’ve seen the giant diamond encrusted chains that hip – hop artists wear, right? That’s iced out jewellery. To give a piece of jewellery the iced out look it is usually set with dozens to hundreds of stones. This can be done with bracelets, chains, rings, pendants, and even watches.
Iced out jewellery on a budget?
Although ice usually refers to diamonds, you don’t have to fork out thousands if you want to flex an iced out piece.
A popular alternative to diamonds is to cop a gold or silver piece of jewellery set with cubic zirconia. Cubic zirconia is a lab made gemstone designed to look like a diamond. To the untrained eye it’s difficult to tell the difference, making it a great affordable substitute if you want the iced out look without the price tag. These stones are just a fraction of the price of a diamond and can look as good as the real thing if manufactured well.
If you are looking to buy cheap iced out jewellery without breaking the bank, plated jewellery is the way to go. These pieces usually consist of a base metal such as steel or copper covered with a layer of gold and are usually set with cubic zirconia. The benefit of not buying precious metals or diamonds means that you can get giant pieces that turn heads and switch up your style more often.

How to care for iced out jewellery?
As with any piece of jewellery, you need to know how to care for your iced out piece if you want it to last. Here are just a few tips on how to care for your iced out jewellery.
Clean it regularly
Make sure to clean your iced out jewellery often to keep it looking fresh. You can use a soft brush or toothbrush to remove any dirt that your jewellery has collected. If you have gold or silver ice, use warm water and odourless soap to clean, then pat with a soft towel. Don’t leave it to drip dry! If you are buying plated items, make sure they are waterproof before using this method as they may tarnish.
Keep it safe
This might seem obvious, but you must keep your jewellery safe if you want it to last. Having hundreds of small stones makes your jewellery more prone to damage, so try to avoid doing anything too active when wearing your ice. You should also keep your jewellery somewhere safe such as a jewellery box or drawer, and if possible, wrapped in a soft cloth or pouch separate from other pieces
