October Birthstone: Opal

Those born in October have beautiful Opal as their birthstone. Each Opal is truly one of a kind - they are as unique as our individual fingerprints. Ranging in colour from cool to warm, there are many varieties of opals, including Mexican fire opals, rainbow-hued Australian Boulder opals and rich black opals. Opal pieces are the perfect birthday gift idea for your loved ones.

What is Opal?
The unique gemstone is renowned for its unusual display of flashing rainbow colours, referred to as ‘play-of-colour’. There are two main classes of opal: precious opals which displays play-of-colour, and common opals which do not. The colour play is caused by the diffraction of light through spheres, and unless all factors are perfect when the gem is formed, there will be no colour play.
Many ancient cultures declare opals as magical. The Bedouins thought they contained lightning and fell from the sky during thunderstorms, whilst the Romans believed it was the most precious and powerful gemstone of all.

Designed intricately, the limelight is claimed by lightly triangular glossy opal stone in the center, which subsequently is neatly outlined by glaring diamonds carved in caramel frame as perfect stud earring.
Opal Meaning

From black opals to Australian opals, each variety holds a different meaning. White opals are thought to increase competency and efficiency, whilst fire opals are seen as an energy amplifier which help facilitate change and support through times of emotional turmoil. Opals are a wonderful stone for releasing and letting go of the past.
