Happy Halloween all lab-grown luxury diamonds and stones jewellery fans out there!
Did you know Halloween is one of the world’s oldest traditions? It began in Ireland and dates back 2,000 years to the Celts, who called it Samhain!
This year at Lark & Berry, we’re starting a brand new Halloween tradition, and if you guessed it’s all about cultured diamonds and stones and the right colours to make your spooky outfit really stand out – you’re exactly right!
Before we get into checking out these specially curated grown diamonds and stones luxury pieces for your Halloween party nights, how about some fun facts about Halloween? These are great to share at parties as you enjoy what we feel is the Fall/Winter’s best, most fun, most low-stress holiday...
FUN FACT #1
Witches used to be honoured in Celtic society and were known as ‘the crone’ amongst the Celts until fear of older women, particularly those who didn’t marry, spread. At that point, the kindly figure of the crone morphed in the popular mind into a cackling evil witch!
FUN FACT #2
The name Dracula means ‘son of the Dragon’ and was taken from a bloodthirsty 16th-century conqueror called Vlad Dracula, better known as Vlad the Impaler.
FUN FACT #3
When All Hallow’s Eve was co-opted by Christians, the new tradition became to dress up as the devil in the belief that Satan would flee when he saw people mocking him and attacking his pride.
FUN FACT #4
The largest gathering of zombies on record took place in October 2014 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. It was a zombie pub crawl that numbered 15,458 of the living dead as recorded by Guinness World Records.
FUN FACT #5
Popular legend posits that a great way to keep evil spirits at bay is to gather around a bonfire! Why? Well, it’s said that spirits are terrified of the light and heat created by fire, and would much rather skulk around in the dark.
