October Birthsone Jewellery

Along with tourmaline, opal is the birthstone for the month of October. Known as the queen of the gems in ancient times, this beautiful stone got its nickname because it's made up of all the colours of the other gems. Each gem is stunningly unique, whether it's made up of calming blues and greens or exciting, vibrant reds and yellows. There are many superstitions and plenty of mythology associated with opals. In Europe, people used to believe the stone could make you invisible, while French superstition believes it to be a jinx. However, for a very long time, many have said that opal has healing powers.
