We need to talk about spiders. Isn’t it strange that, 11 out of 12 months of the year, many of us are terrified by the eight-legged creepy crawlies, but come October, we’re wearing their likeness, decorating our homes with spiderwebs, and even serving snacks and desserts made up to look like them? It’s amazing, the things we do for Halloween. Now don’t get me wrong, spiders are good. They serve an important function in nature, and I have an appreciation for them—but I’m not so keen on sharing a home with them. I don’t think I’m alone in that feeling. Still, since some of us embrace the Halloween season by welcoming the chance to get a little creeped out, Borgioni‘s bangle is more than appropriate. Designed in a floating style with a ruby-covered spider on one end and a black diamond web on the other, it’s got everything you could want in a dramatic holiday jewel. The black rhodium setting enhances its sinister shine, whether you find its inhabitants whimsically wonderful or more shriek-worthy. Though the bracelet is aces for Halloween, it’s no one-season wonder. I think you’ll find it to be quite the edgy statement any time of year, adding a dash of dark sparkle worn as is or within a stack. Spiders, at least this one, are welcome in my house, er, jewelry box anytime.
