The Significance of Halloween Jewellery
Halloween is a time of year when people dress up in costumes that are spooky and sometimes even scary. One way that you can add to your Halloween outfit is by wearing Halloween jewellery. Halloween jewellery can include Halloween necklaces, bracelets and rings. But what is the significance of Halloween jewellery and why do people wear it?
Halloween jewellery is a great way to mark the holiday and celebrate the Autumn season. It can also be a way to pay homage to the origins of Halloween. Did you know that Halloween has a fascinating history that dates back to ancient Celtic traditions?
What Is The History Of Halloween Jewellery?
The origins of Halloween can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain which marked the beginning of winter. Jewellery during this time was used for both decorative and protective reasons. Amulets and talismans featuring crosses were often worn to protect against the supernatural.
The Victorian era witnessed a resurgence in gothic jewellery. Mourning jewellery, often made from onyx, became particularly popular after the death of Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert. Victorian mourning jewellery often featured designs such as skulls and coffins. Gothic-style jewellery was also popular with its dark gemstones and distinctive filigree designs.
In the early 20th century, Halloween-themed jewellery such as brooches and earrings featuring pumpkins and cats became increasingly popular. More subtle pieces such as dainty charm pendants were also commonly worn.
