7 Platinum Jewels for a Spook-tacular Halloween and Beyond
This collection is for you if: 1) You’ve landed an exclusive invite to a Halloween-themed masquerade ball and need some dazzling platinum jewelry to match, 2) You’re perched on your porch this year giving out far too much candy—score!— and still want to be in on the fun, or 3) You simply adore platinum jewelry. The more character, the better!
Get into the spirit of the season beginning with the fantastic carved agate pendant/brooch shown above, courtesy of Highkarat. Dangling on a lengthy 24-inch chain, this foliate marvel would be the perfect finishing touch over a cozy sweater or pinned to the bodice of your gown. Did I mention the diamonds are set so that they can sway? You can thank the superior strength of platinum!
364 days of the year, platinum filigree. On Halloween… platinum spider webs! These whimsical earrings from Goldstein Diamonds really show off the durability of platinum since the fine tendrils have stayed in mint condition for nearly a century. No need to be mindful of any arachnids here: almost 2 carats of old-cut diamonds turn fright into delight.
Bats symbolize perceptiveness, rebirth, luck, and even cordiality (highly social creatures, they are remarkably affectionate with family). The choice to adorn with this marvelous stickpin from A. Brandt+Son on Halloween is obvious, but on every other day it would serve as a truly handsome talisman for someone quiet and kind, intuitive, considerate, and sprinkled with a dash of magic.
At first glance, this platinum ring set with onyx and moonstone via Bernardo Antichità seems to be a bold toi-et-moi design; the truth reveals itself upon closer inspection! This could be a great conversational piece for daily wear—the balance of the two gems, both in position and color, can take on a variety of meanings unique to the wearer. On Halloween, however… say cheeeeese!
If you’ve given (or eaten—don’t worry, your secret’s safe with us) all your Halloween sweets and are longing for just a little more, one glance at this vintage Tiffany & Co. platinum bracelet from Steven Fox Jewelry will fulfill all your sugary desires. As a signature piece, it will brighten even the most trying of days (not to mention harmonize beautifully with your wardrobe). A “treat” in every lasting sense of the word!
I cannot get over this magnificent brooch courtesy of David Precious Gems! It is the very definition of contemplated artistry: the crescent-shaped moon is carved rock crystal, paying tribute to the mysterious and alluring qualities of the real deal. The owl, wrought in bright-white platinum and set with dozens of diamonds, gives the illusionary essence of something that is hidden in plain sight—a softly glittering silhouette at the edge of dusk or candlelight. Finally and fittingly, tiger’s eye quartz for this particular bird’s greatest redeeming physical characteristic (with its chatoyant effect lending an overall impression of constant vigilance). Platinum j-hoo-lry that is fine, fun, and forever.
Feeling mischievous? Then try this fascinating platinum pendant offered by A. Brandt+Son! The jury’s out on whether the faces depicted in the royal blue enamel are gargoyles, fauns, or devils… but they are equal parts haunting and mesmerizing. Diamonds embedded in radiating platinum provide an element of subtle glamour while a central locket compartment serves as the ultimate in bejeweled conspiracy. On days that don’t begin with a “Hallow” and end with an “een” the four visages have a protective quality, fiercely guarding the precious contents beneath. Experience the most awe-inspiring moments with this platinum jewel as your companion!
