You might not automatically think of jewelry when you think of Halloween, but that’s all about to change. Introducing black onyx (and other gems) that are the perfect addition to your jewelry collection in the fall. For a holiday that’s largely centered around the colors orange and black, these stones bring out the spirit and fun of your family traditions. Wear them on Halloween, trick-or-treat night, or during the surrounding weeks to celebrate the spooky yet beautiful side of this national holiday.
Dark and mysterious, black onyx exudes a unique sense of mystery compared to many other traditional gemstones. Its opaque color makes it particularly striking, and—let’s face it—black never goes out of style! That makes onyx a great choice for virtually everything in your closet.
Black onyx comes from the onyx family, which also comes in other hues, including red and white. It is largely hailed for its strong guiding properties—ones that can ward off evil and aid a person on their journey through life. Many people love wearing black onyx due to these spiritual characteristics, while others are simply drawn to the deep, rich color that makes a huge statement.
This Halloween, try onyx for a look that stands out from the crowd. Whether you’re dressing up in a costume, or getting fancy for an upscale event, there are tons of pieces that can fit the mood and theme of this holiday. Try elevating your style away from basic by using onyx as a focal point of your outfit—such as with this gorgeous tree necklace or these simple drop earrings.
In addition to black onyx, Halloween wouldn’t be complete without touches of orange. For those who prefer to have a lighter look, orange is a good contrast against the darkness of black. There are many orange-hued gemstones, however the best one for this date is citrine.
Citrine—ranging in color from yellow to orange to brown—is bright, positive, and cheerful. It’s the perfect antidote to all things spooky and dark this Halloween. Vibrating an upbeat energy, citrine is loved for its warm hues, making it the best choice for November’s birthstone. Check out these red-orange citrine earrings!
Pair your orange citrine with black onyx for a truly on-trend feel this year, or wear them individually all year round. Citrine has a great autumn feel, but is equally wearable in the summer, as well. Other gems that have an orange hue include amber and carnelian.
The time is almost here to celebrate this classic, national holiday, but it’s never too early to start wearing your black and orange. With so many options to choose from, your jewelry will be on point for not only Halloween, but every day. Black onyx and citrine can be used in so many ways to fit every woman’s personal style, from traditional and understated, to glamorous and dramatic. The choice is yours!
