The most gorgeous woodsy scent on the market. I own several expensive DS & Durga and Tom Ford fragrances and this surpasses most. If you’re looking for a beautiful fall fragrance just buy it. Support a small business and smell like heaven.

FIVE STARS Ryan F.
I was helped by Jasmin earlier today at the NY location, and she was an absolute joy to work with. Extremely helpful, knowledgeable about pieces, and really sweet. I ended up leaving to look at other shops around the area, and decided to come back, because of Jasmin, and the piece I was interested in was so beautiful. Have and will continue to shop here! Everyone has always been so kind and helpful each time I've come in. Keep safe and be well!!

GOLD GEOMETRIC STUDS
I hadn't worn earrings in 20 years, when one day I woke up and decided I needed some right away! I knew that I wanted 14k gold studs, but they had to be unique, earthy and geometric. This was the last pair in the gold studs group on the website, and the second I saw them I knew they were perfect. These earrings ticked all the boxes for me. I love the shape, weight and shine of this design, and they pair perfectly with a tiny 14k gold triangle and round stud in second and third holes. I look forward to getting to know Adeline Jewelry better, because this design really speaks to me. Thanks Esqueleto, I will be back for more!

This is the most beautiful engagement ring - it is more perfect than I could have dreamed of. And the folks at the shop in Oakland were such a treat to connect with - kind, informative, witty. We'll definitely be coming back for our wedding bands!

MEMORIES DISCOVERY RING
I absolutely love this ring. I feel it was created for me. It gives me great memories of my late husband as he was on earth and now as he is in heaven with the diamonds. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

FIVE STARS Matthew R.
Great necklace! I took my 17 year old daughter into the new shop on Ingraham Street in Crown Point to show her around and she fell in love with the skull necklace so I went back without her and bought it for her upcoming 18th birthday. Marjorie the shops manager was very knowledgable of the piece I picked as well as any other piece I asked about while in the store. They have some very unique pieces to gaze upon in such a wonderful space so if you're looking for something different try Esqueleto! Mateo

SIGNATURE WOVEN BRACELET
When I went to the store I was just curious and looking. After the shop caretaker explained to me the style of the artist who makes the jewelry, I came to admire it. I love the hammered gold, the engagement/wedding ring pairings I was shown and the different styles of diamonds and colors. I loved learning that the diamonds are picked from safe diamond sources. I left with three bracelets and I love them!

five stars Jake H.
We love the ring we ended up with! So unique and beautiful. 10 out of 10 would do again!

five stars Julie C.

SALT + PEPPER DIAMOND STUDS
My girlfriend absolutely loved the design of these earrings. I got them as a Christmas present but it had to be a surprise. The staff was amazingly helpful and went so far as to rush order new earrings from the designer. The staff went above and beyond giving me different options and frankly kicked some major butt. My girlfriend got the earrings before Christmas and loved them. I scored so many points with her, but most of those points go to the staff...particularly Rachel. Thank you team!

SILVER SERPENT RING
I am so in love with this ring! I have been eyeing it for a while and finally pulled the trigger. The details that is put into the piece is just so beautiful. Thank you so much!

five stars Olivia H.
This is such a beautiful ring. My partner and I came in looking for some engagement ring ideas, not sure we were going to find. We were so wonderfully surprised by this dazzling ring. Its geometric shape so beautifully aligns with and highlights the contours of my finger. The muted shine of the central salt and pepper diamond accentuates the brilliance of the surrounding little white diamonds. The Esquelleto team were wonderful in answering our questions and supporting us through this very exciting, fun, and personal process. Never once did I feel like they were trying to over sell me. It was clear from the beginning that they were all there to support us in finding the ring that was just right. Thank you!

SMALL BLACK SKULL RING
This small skull ring is the perfect balance between exquisite and badass. It’s finely rendered and the gold teeth stand in elegant contrast to the dark patina. I got it made for my pinkie. It makes me feel as cool as Keith Richards.

SILVER SERPENT RING
I asked for this silver ring to be polished to match my other rings and it looks wonderful. The movement of the snake is surprising and almost lifelike, I feel like I carry a little companion with me on my finger. However, the ring is thinner than I expected; it is actually quite dainty.

five stars Jennifer F.
OXIDIZED SILVER BIRD SKULLS
These earrings are gorgeous! They are very comfortable to wear, and we’re exactly what I was looking for. Love!

SILVER HUGS
I love them. I bought a pair months ago, before the pandemic and I wore them every day. I recently lost them and had to buy another pair right away. Thankful to be able to shop online. Your store is my favorite jewelry shop. Thank you!

five stars Stephen C.
I love it. I bought an engagement ring, a beautiful vintage, and needed it resized. When i called to check on the progress, the woman on the line helped me more than just telling me when it would ship. She also made sure the return address did not say "Esqueleto" because I was trying to keep this a surprise. She went above and beyond.

five stars Jamie W.
My husband and I were looking for unique wedding bands that fit our personalities. We had looked at other jewelers and just couldn't find bands that fit what we were looking for or a store that matched our vibe-- that is, until we walked into Esqueleto. The selection here is to die for with a piece for literally everyone. Finding rings that we loved wasn't difficult, choose which of the many we loved was the hard part! We had such amazing help from Rachel at our appointment and throughout the design process. I wound up selecting the Johnny Ninos barnacle nesting ring which was customized in a rose gold, satin finish with black diamonds. My husband picked out the Lauren Wolf thin, half round, gold men's band which was customized with a satin finish and three gorgeous, black diamonds. The rings perfectly reflect one another and will be treasured for years to come.

five stars Anne Z.
I worked in fashion in NYC and Esqueleto has the most exquisite and curated jewelry in the country. Within this chic little store, beauty, imagination and the avant-garde abound. The staff are so kind and have a knack for knowing exactly what you will love... all within your budget. Don’t wait to experience Oakland’s hidden jewel (literally!).

The team at Esqueleto is awesome! They are so attentive and helpful - they let me know that I needed to have gold earrings for an upcoming event and I updated my order to a pair that I love! I shop with Esqueleto as often as I can because I know they take great care of their customers!

MARQUISE MORGANITE RING
Sweet as pie - has a light champagne tone with ever so slight pink vibes - plays nice on a finger next to my Misty Mountain Lauren Wolf 3 stone salt and pepper one of a kind love of my life. great scale. Comfy. Precious impulse buy alternative to the diamond version. Yay. Y’all rule! 

five stars Tracy M.
SILVER SERPENT RING
I love this so much I went back and got the gold version to stack. The ring is very comfortable to wear, the head and tail don't catch on my clothes or hair. The scale detail is great, so good that a friend of mine who is afraid of snakes refused to touch it.
