October Birthday Stack
Begin your October Birthday Stack with our Hematite LUXE AWB, then add the elegant Calista Cuff in Hematite, and finish with our ever-glamorous Smokey Quartz Aurora crystal bangle.
The Gemstone: Hematite
Hematite and Opal share October as their designated birth month. Because Opals are incredibly hard to obtain in tiny size crystals, Hematite is the choice for our October Luxe AWB.
The blood-red pigment of precious Hematite speaks to its incredibly high iron content. The Ancient Greeks were obsessed with this stone, and they named it Haima, which in the old Latin tongue is the Greek word for blood.
Throughout history, Hematite has been known as a stone of great healing power and also for its ability to serve as a protective cloak. The Iron Rose as it was sometimes called has long left an impression on the earth. Far back in history, the stone was considered to be an early form of a mirror thanks to its reflective sheen. It was also ground down into powdered pigment for artists – even used by prehistoric man for etching his ideas on the walls of caves. In its full form, Hematite adorned the tombs of the pharaohs.
The Hematite Luxe AWB has a strand of natural 2mm Hematite totaling approximately 2.98 carats, the bangle is sealed with our Serenity Prayer Bead in 925 silver dipped in 18 carat gold.

The Star Sign: Scorpio
OCT 23 - NOV 21
Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. Because of its incredible passion and power, Scorpio is often mistaken for a fire sign. In fact, Scorpio is a water sign that derives its strength from the psychic, emotional realm.
Like fellow water signs, Cancer and Pisces, Scorpio is extremely clairvoyant and intuitive. What makes this water sign unique is its distinctive venomous sting. Like their celestial spirit animal, the scorpion, Scorpios lie in wait and strike when least expected. Life is a game of chess for these calculating water signs, who are constantly plotting several steps ahead in order to orchestrate an eventual checkmate. This doesn't mean their intentions are necessarily nefarious.
Scorpios simply know what they want and aren't afraid to work hard and play the long game to get it. They never show their cards and their enigmatic nature is what makes them so seductive and beguiling.
Scorpio is the “sexiest” sign. The part of the body that Scorpio governs is the genital area. Sex isn't solely about pleasure for these sensual scorpions. They also crave the physical closeness, spiritual illumination, and emotional intimacy sex can provide. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet that governs both destruction and transformation.
On a good day, Scorpion energy is ambitious and enticing. On a bad day, however, the shadowy side of Scorpio is fueled by a relentless desire for control. Power-hungry Scorpios must remember that if controlled by their egos, they are at risk of poisoning themselves.
This sign is at its best when that intrinsic intensity is applied to deep, soulful connections with friends and lovers. When they build trust with others, Scorpios demonstrate unparalleled empathy, depth, and commitment that brighten even the darkest parts of Scorpio’s magical psyche.
