Opal - October
Opal, the birthstone of October, derives its name from the Latin word 'opalus', meaning precious jewel. Prized for its unique ability to reflect light, ancient monarchs treasured Opals, both for their beauty and their protective powers. Opals were set in crowns and necklaces to ward off evil and to protect eyesight. These gemstones were also ground and ingested for their healing properties and to ward off nightmares! A gift of an Opal is symbolic of faithfulness and confidence.
David Dudley has always been passionate about Opals and has been dedicated to putting together a beautiful collection of Opal jewellery, including Black Opal and Fire Opal.
