WHAT ARE BIRTHSTONES?

A birthstone is a gemstone that represents a person’s period of birth—usually corresponding to the month. It is believed that each stone is to enhance the wearer’s inherent qualities, while inspiring strength, energy, and good fortune.


OPAL BIRTHSTONE MEANING & HISTORY

The October birthstone, Opal, originates from the Latin word “Opalus”, meaning to gather the essence of every gem into one. The ancient Romans called opal the “Queen of Gems” because it encompasses the colors of all the other gems. Opal was believed to embody the virtues and powers of all colored stones.

To ancient Romans, opal symbolizes hope and purity. It is a gift granted by the heaven in bolts of lightning and unfolds the “Nature’s fireworks” before one’s eyes. The “Nature’s fireworks” is the charm of opal as there is shimmering prism that appears in the stone in a variety of colors. This is the unique distinction of opal - fanciful play-of-color. Jewelry with opals set in them were worn to repel evil and to protect eyesight.

Opal is also the stone given to celebrate the 14th wedding anniversary.
