Happy Halloween 2013: 5 Spooky Cool Jewels

Look out for cute kids in costumes tomorrow night (which is Halloween, of course) who panhandle for fun-size Snickers like politicians soliciting votes pre-election day. Adults who don’t want to compete with their kids costume-wise can take a decidedly more sophisticated approach in the form of holiday-inspired jewelry. Think ghosts, spiders, zombies, and otherwise terrifying creatures, or look to numerology—in particular, an eerie trio of supernatural-inspired numbers courtesy of Wendy Brandes—to send a subtly scary sign.
