From all of us at Bel Air Jewelry, we hope you had a haunting Halloween! In honor of this spooky week we thought we’d provide you with a ghost story of the bejeweled kind. In the bustling city of New York, a modern business woman keeps having her heart stolen, not by mortal men; but by a ghost. And by heart, I don’t mean that flesh and blood organ pumping life through your veins, but her heart shaped jewelry. Apparently, even poltergeists have a flare for bling! Read her full story here. Have you had any diamond demons after your jewels? Share your most haunting jewelry mishap in the comments below!
This little gem by Bel Air jewelry reminded me of the black tie dress code for evening events and social functions derived from British and American costume conventions of the 19th century. Worn only for events after 6 p.m., black tie is less formal than white tie but more formal than informal formal than recent intermediate codes of “creative,” “alternate” or “optional” black tie.
Women’s dress for black tie occasions has varied greatly through the years; traditionally it was dinner (ankle) or tea (below mid-calf) length sleeveless evening gown. Today, cocktail (knee) length garments and jewelry are considered equally appropriate in most places. To me, however, a black tie event is very similar to Halloween. Everyone dresses up and wears masks of a different sort, but it’s all in the same spirit of play and glam. This Halloween, weather it be a Cinderella like ball, or a spooky haunted hay ride, wear your own black tie.
With October on the rise Halloween, or Hollow’s Evening, is just around the corner. Western traditions dictate activities like trick-or-treating, bonfires, costume parties, haunted houses, and carving jack-o-lanterns. However, Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samahain; the festival celebrating the end of the harvest in Gaelic culture. They believed on October 31st the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped. This haunting necklace from Bel Air Jewelry is reminiscent of the dark beauty of this holiday. Let your love overlap all boundaries, and cross into the forbidden.
