Dia de los Muertos

Skulls

Recently I’ve been noticing a lot of jewelry with skulls and crosses, can this be because Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is upon us? This Mexican celebration dates back thousands of years, taking place the first two days of November. Festivities vary depending on location and include: decorating the graves of relatives with flowers and candles, preparing special food, and setting up home altars.

Whether or not this celebration is the reason, there has certainly been an increase in jewelry with crosses and skulls. This jewelry comes in the form of bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings with many variations in color. I think it’s a beautiful way to show love for deceased relatives, do you?
