Halloween originates from the ancient Celtic Samhain festival that marks the end of the summer and celebrates the final harvest and the onset of winter during October 31st and 2nd November. The eve of November is regarded as the most magical time during this period, known today as Halloween. The Celts believed that during this magical time, the divide between the living and the dead lifted during Samhain leaving ghosts and evil spirits to roam the earth. From this has come today’s iconic Halloween symbol’s of ghosts and ghouls, skulls, bats, pumpkins, witches and black cats!
Skulls have been a big story in jewellery this year, with the Rebel trend of the Autumn and Winter featuring this icon heavily. This season ChloBo have used the Skull in their Lucky13 range, nestled on sparkling jet black onyx, you can choose from Silver or Gold which make a great Halloween addition and will carry you right through the winter.

The official birthstone for October is the beautiful Opal, along with Pink Tourmaline. Opal has long been known as the stone of good fortune and was often worn as a symbol of good luck, particularly in Roman times. In Ancient Arabic culture, the Opal is believed to have fallen from the sky during electric storms infusing a rainbow of flashing colours within the gemstone. Opals range from clear through white, grey, pink, red, black, yellow and blue giving this gemstone a unique trait.
