Opals: Kaleidoscope Gems

These opalescent gems are aptly named Opals from the Ancient Greek meaning “changes in color.” The Romans also loved them for the kaleidoscope of colors that they reflect. Opals are associated with lightness, spontaneity and creativity.

Opals are the perfect birthstone for October birthdays and a wonderful for your Valentine or Christmas love.

Our October Birthstone Jewelry feature Opals that are created in a laboratory and designed to mimic the Earth’s centuries long process, each stone nearly identical in molecular and chemical composition to mine extracted gems. Lab grown stones are real, genuine gemstones and are a wonderful choice for the ecologically minded individual. And, lab created gemstones are much more economical than natural stones.
