October Birthstone Spotlight: OPAL
Symbolic of faithfulness and confidence, the Opal is prized for its unique ability to refract and reflect specific wavelengths of light. It is a non-crystallized silica, which is a mineral found near the earth’s surface in areas where ancient geothermal hot springs once existed. This gemstone actually contains up to 30% water, so it must be protected from heat or harsh chemicals, both of which will cause drying and may lead to cracking and loss of iridescence.
This month’s featured birthstone jewelry piece is from the Private Label collection: Italian Opal Earrings. These Italian earrings feature faceted cushion-shaped white opal in 18 carat rose gold with a full-cut diamond accent on the French wire. For more information, visit Kings1912.com.
