Birthstone jewellery is popular with all ages, and wearing your birthstone can help you to feel at your best. The birthstone for October is opal; here are just a few ideas for ways to wear this beautiful gemstone.
Opals come in a variety of colours, from translucent opals to vibrant fire opals, and a silver or gold opal ring is a great way to wear this gorgeous stone. Whether you opt for a chunky, hammered style with a single stone or a delicate band of gold set with tiny opals, you’re sure to make an impact.
A great way to wear your birthstone is as a bracelet charm. Brands such as Pandora do a range of pink opal charms, which complement their silver bracelets perfectly. There are even matching pink opal earrings available!
A large, single opal set in gold, white gold or silver makes a stunning piece of statement jewellery. For a traditional look, opt for a round or oval opal pendant, whilst for a contemporary vibe, a teardrop, triangular or abstract shape adds a really unusual look!
Why not pair this season’s key trend, the cuff, with your birthstone? You’ll find a variety of opal cufflinks available, from hammered styles with one opal to interwoven designs studded with smaller stones, and the blue-green of opals is the perfect match for this winter’s neutral knitwear
