The best birthday gift for October

As unique as the person who wears it, opal became the most coveted gemstone of all by capturing minds and souls with its mysterious play of colours.


Representing happiness, hope, faithfulness and confidence, the opal was the most highly prized stone in the Roman Empire and has been worn throughout the centuries by royalty and aristocrats alike.


The opal is steeped in mythology from ancient Greece to India and everywhere in between. Our favourite story comes from the Australian Dreamtime, where Aboriginal tribes celebrated the opal’s kaleidoscopic fire and believed it to be the creator’s footprint that touched the earth at the base of a rainbow to bring harmony. We love this story!


From birthdays to engagements to weddings to anniversaries to baby showers, opals are the best birthday gift for October.


Let us guide you select that perfect opal piece for you and your loved ones.
