Today October is upon us! This might just be our favorite month around the ESQUELETO shops, with its embrace of all things witchy and weird, bones and skulls (ESQUELETO does mean “skeleton” after all), deep autumnal tones, and a return to wild winds and darker eves after a summer of California sun. Read on below for ten of our favorite spooky seasonal selections for an awesome October! GOLD DOUBLE SNAKE RING Katrina LaPenne is the snake queen, and this super luxe version of her two-headed serpent ring in solid 14k gold is bold talisman of knowledge and transformation.

Scintillating Sapphires

September 4, 2018
by Jessie Zechnowitz
September babies have sapphire as their birthstone, a gem of wisdom and royalty. These blue beauties are credited as being the gemstone of creative expression, meditation, and inner peace. Sapphires are said to protect their wearers from fraud and treachery, and to ward off illness. According to legend, wearing a gemstone during its appointed birth month heightens its therapeutic and talismanic effects, whether it’s your own birth month or not! So fortunately, we can all benefit from the mystic charms of the sapphire this month (and of course they’re not too shabby to look at either). Sapphires are the second most durable precious gem after diamonds, making them optimal for daily... Read More

Opal Obsessions

by Alexis Adams
I’m always jealous of October babies, because I think they’ve got the best birthstone. I’ve long loved opals for their confetti-like party of colors, their way of shifting and changing with the light, and their overall ethereal beauty. Dainty, delicate little opal studs by Scosha and WWake are some of my personal favorites for upper lobe piercings. Please join us in the Oakland shop on Saturday, October 14th for a piercing party with master piercer J. Colby Smith – link to book below!

The autumnal equinox is approaching and with it Fall, which means Libra season is upon us. As a natural peacekeeper, the kind and gentle Libra is always seeking balance.

Below you’ll find some pieces that exemplify the peaceful balance that speaks to both Libras and non-Libras alike! Sun Moon Diamond Earrings by Celine D’Aoust These celestial sun and moon statement earrings are the perfect nod to the autumnal equinox; the ultimate natural balance of daylight to night.
