Can you believe it’s already 2019? Time flies… but jewelry is immortal. The rare alchemy of nature forges glittering gemstones that have captured the human imagination for thousands of years. Let’s take a look back among the ages at some of the most prized and honored gemstones and what they symbolized for our ancestors. MOONSTONE Since it’s a feldspar, moonstone is a fairly soft stone – which may be why it’s referred to as the stone of tenderness and is thought of as a heart-opening aid. Ancient India’s astrologers believed that wearing this stone was a way to gain the favor and friendship of the moon! RAINBOW MOONSTONE RING By Lauren Wolf Wax-on moon goddesses,... Read More

LOOKBOOK SNEAK PEEK

November 13, 2018
by Jessie Zechnowitz
As we head into the holiday season and the lack of light that comes with it, ESQUELETO prepares to drop our latest lookbook in all its dusky glory. For this moody look, our models included the serpentine variety… snakes coiled their reptilian curves around our gleaming gems for an edgy feel with plenty of bite! We had a great time working with our friends at the East Bay Vivarium, who supplied the talent, and obviously had mad snake handling skills. We were also stoked to collaborate with our go-to lookbook photographer, Ramon Felix, as well as our very own LA manager, Alexis Adams and her magnificent mitts. Keep an eye out for the complete spread, launching online and in print in... Read More
