Wearing a ring with your birthstone is believed to bring you good luck. Many crystal healers recommend wearing a birthstone to keep away misfortune and negativity. Opal is the birthstone for the month of October. What is important to understand is that, each one of us can wear just about any gem and need not be limited to our birthstone. A number of metaphysical properties have been attributed to opal, these are further enhanced when a person born in the month of October wears the gem.
In ancient times the Romans and Greeks gave high respect to opal, the gemstone was valued more than diamonds. You might hear that wearing an opal ring improves your love life, closely related to this was the old Roman belief that opal was the 'cupid stone'.
Wearing a ring with opal the October birthstone is believed to make a person more forward thinking, the stone was often referred to as the 'visionaries stone'. An opal birthstone ring is supposed to attract inspiration and stimulate a wider vision.
There are a number of opal varieties, not all opals show those color flashes which is technically referred to as 'color play'. When choosing an October birthstone ring, you could pick any type of opal. Most of you would expect the gemstone to be natural and not man made, this is a great way to go. The opal shown in the RG211 Kaisilver Opal Diamond Ring is a natural white opal from Australia. Gem quality white opals should show a clearly visible color play effect. You can see this gorgeous optical phenomenon in the above ring.
White opal is the most sought after opal color, Australia is the preferred source for this gemstone. The rising prices of Austalian opals combined with its rarity, gave African opals a chance to enter the gemstone markets. Ethiopian opals are quite easily found and are priced much lower than Australian opals. At Kaisilver we prefer to source opals directly from the Australian mines as these gems, provide much more value. Fire opal is a variety of opal that has a pale orange to deep reddish orange color, Mexico is the preferred source for this gemstone. The opal mines in Peru provide an elegant pink opal gemstone, this is also an interesting option for an October birthstone ring.
The RG211 opal ring is shown with diamonds, these are basically optional and you could request for the same ring to be crafted with no diamonds. If you would like your October birthstone ring to have the same look as in the image but, wish to tone down the price tag a bit - consider the option for white sapphires instead of diamonds.
Most jewelers end their product descriptions by talking about how pretty and stylish their jewelry is, a important point is left out for reasons of convenience. Every natural gem is bestowed with natural characteristics that need to be kept in mind when the gem is worn or handled. Learning about these unique properties will help you take best care of your jewels. In the case of opal, the important thing to know is that, moisture trapped inside the stone is the secret behind the gorgeous color flashes (color play) that you see. Light that is diffracted within these moisture pockets causes that lovely optical phenomenon. Heat, chemicals, strong detergent and even chlorine present in water can affect the moisture levels in the stone. Keep this in mind was you wear, clean and even store your opal birth stone ring. In a more general sense, jewelry of any type should not be physically struck as this can damage the gemstones and the metal mount.
