October Birthstone Spotlight: Opal

Oct 27, 2010

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 King Jewelers collection: Cushion Opal Rose Gold Earrings. These earrings have cushion-shaped opals set in 18 carat rose gold with a round-cut white diamond accent set on the French wire. Total diamond weight is 0.06 carats.
