Tell Your Story with a Stone
Birthstones have been around since ancient times. Gemstones used to be distinguished by color, and in many cultures were thought to bring health, luck, and prosperity. The concept of twelve stones is thought to come from the breastplate of Aaron described in the Old Testament Book of Exodus as containing twelve stones representing the twelve tribes of Israel. This page is dedicated to celebrating your birth month with unique jewelry, hand-crafted by league-juried artists.
In ancient times many considered this stone to be able to cure diseases of the eye and wore it for that very purpose, believed to bring good luck to those who are born in October. Opal represents purity, innocence, and hope, and is thought to bring faithfulness and loyalty to its wearer.
