Leave the Candy for the Kids: These Luxury Jewels Are So Much Sweeter



Goshwara multicolor gemstone Gossip necklace

What popular childhood treat does Goshwara‘s Gossip necklace remind you of?

Remember how fun it was to trick or treat? You’d do it until it you were old enough that it was no longer age-appropriate (and then maybe another year after that), dressing up in your Halloween best to knock on doors throughout the neighborhood, hold out your sack, and collect some candy. There was always that one lady who would hand out something healthy like an apple, and you’d think, “I don’t think she understands Halloween.” Despite that, you couldn’t wait to get home and have your parents painstakingly check over each and every treat for safety’s sake so that you could finally dig in. Maybe it wasn’t like that for everyone, but it’s most definitely what it was like for me. And now that I’m older, well, darn it, I miss trick-or-treating. It’s one of the all-important moments of a kid’s life that really highlights the spirit of the holiday. You’re with me, right?

Well, just because we’re grown out of our childhood years doesn’t mean we have to miss out on the treats of the season. Actually, these adult treats are even better than the candy that would go straight to our waistlines. Here’s the lineup: some of our favorite sugary treats as kids, paired with the completely calorie-free jewels that make being grown-ups oh so sweet. When your nostalgic shoppers come a-haunting on Halloween night, on the prowl for some sweet treats, be sure to have these on display. You’re sure to have some very pleased (adult!) trick-or-treaters on your hands.
