Can you believe it? October is here and Halloween is just around the corner. How are you celebrating? We’re celebrating with a sale! But before we give you all the details, let’s talk a little more about Halloween.
The actual origins of Halloween are subject to some debate, but one theory that has stood the test of time is that it has its pagan roots in the Celtic-speaking countries (Scotland, Ireland and Wales). It’s thought that today’s Halloween customs are linked to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which comes from the Old Irish for ‘summer’s end’ which is also traditionally the time of harvest. But why is Halloween always associated with the color orange?
Most of our modern-day holidays have become associated with one color or another and Halloween is no exception. Orange is the color that we see in nature at this time of year. It’s representative of Fall, the harvest and the changing color of the leaves, so it makes absolute sense that it has become associated with Halloween. One of its most modern manifestations is the orange pumpkins – a Fall veggie – that we all enjoy carving at this time of year.
In honor of Halloween and the color orange, we are offering 15% off our “October Orange” line. How about something with Topaz or Citrine? Did you know that some sapphires even come in orange? Drop by and see us and we’ll show you some gorgeous samples.
It’s also quite fitting that Opal is the birthstone for October. Opals are known for their incredible array of colors. Each stone is unique and will display its own colors – even orange. What better way to make a splash at that Halloween party than showing up wearing a fabulous Halloween-inspired piece? And because opal fits in with our “October Orange” theme, we’ll include it in the 15% off sale.
With Halloween only a few weeks away, it also reminds us of the next major set of holidays. It may be a little too soon for some or you to think about Christmas, but others may be ready to get started. If you are one of those people who loves putting tons of thought into the gifts you give, think about giving that special someone a custom-made piece this year. We have expert jewelers here waiting to make your vision a reality, and there’s plenty of time to get it done before the end of December!
Fall is in the air and there’s lots going on here at the store. We’ve got a great sale on our opal and orange gemstones this month and Christmas is around the corner, so don’t delay! Come on in and see us soon!
