Halloween jewels are a proud tradition here at Diamonds in the Library! I’ve always been a huge fan of the magical – in literature and in life – and Halloween is my very favorite holiday.
This year makes the 8th annual Halloween jewels post here on DitL. Not too shabby, eh?
No more tricks! Let’s get to the treats.
Halloween jewels so good you’ll scream.
You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t believe in the magic of jewels. But some jewels are just a little bit extra magical, wouldn’t you say?
How spookily adorable is this Halloween-perfect ear stack by Alisou Lou?? It makes me want to buy every one of these earrings and then rush out and get more piercings.
If that’s not enough for you…the enamel ghostie glows in the dark!!! See a video here.
When I was younger, I was obsessed with Halloween earrings from Claire’s. Tragically, my ears have become more sensitive over time and I can no longer wear any of those, but these Alison Lou earrings give me that same happy feeling.
I thought that what I loved about spiderwebs was their clean, even geometry, but this organic-feeling and gloriously off kilter spider web from Anna Ruth Henriques totally floats my boat. I think if you saw this gem-strewn pendant on someone on the street, you’d register it first as just a beautiful design and then maybe recognize it as web after a minute or two.
I also love the asymmetry of the gemstones and the mix of colors. Deliciously organic and fully magical. I picked this photo mostly for the web, but that itsy bitsy spider up above is fantastic, too.
Here is my buddy @Pinkpirahnah rocking a wonderfully witchy necklace stack in a recent IG photo. @Pinkpirahnah is a fellow jewelry lover and a collector with a knack for layering and a fantastic eye. I love all the individual components of this look but what really blows me away is the combined overall effect.
If you were wondering how to rock Halloween jewels in daily life, just follow @Pinkpirahnah‘s example.
Polly Wales makes some of the most incredible skull pieces I’ve ever seen a contemporary jeweler create. Her signature style involves gemstones that are cast directly into the gold of her designs, rather than set.
The effect is unique, organic, and utterly striking. This lush gold skull looks like something that grew, instead of something that was carefully made. It’s eerie and unforgettable.
This tiny gold cauldron charm from Kate Gold Jewelry is so cute I can hardly stand to look at it! Those little legs and carefully shaped handle. It’s perfect.
I believe that this irresistible vintage charm sold almost immediately after she posted it, so try not to fall in love too hard.
