Opal the stunning stone for October

As the season’s change, it seems fitting that ‘opal’ translates in Greek terms to ‘see a change of colour’, the perfect description for both a gemstone that radiates a rainbow of colours and the colourful change in seasons.

Opal's are our beautiful stone of the month; representing the birth stone for October.  The name 'Opal' derives from from the Latin “Opalus” and the Greek “Opallios”, meaning 'precious stone'. This milky, multicoloured and eyecatching stone acts as a traditional and timeless stone, worn by women and men of all ages.

One thing you probably didn't know about this stone is that the finest family of Opal contains every colour of the rainbow. This stone also represents hope and innocence, which are connotations of the pure milky white base colour the stones are usually made up of. The term 'Opal' also depicts 'changing of colour', making it a really unique stone to possess because no two are the same!

Did you know that it was Queen Victoria’s favourite gemstone was Opal! She had sapphires, rubies and diamonds from all over the British empire but fell in love with the intoxicating colours of Opals, and we hope you do too!
