The Best Opal Jewelry For October Birthday Celebrants

Opal and tourmaline give October birthstones a full rainbow of colors to choose from.
Comments

When it comes to birthstones, October babies enjoy a plethora of options. Their first birthstone, opal is known for its kaleidoscopic shifting, multifaceted colors (courtesy of small silica spheres that diffract light at many different wavelengths, lend the stones a rainbow effect). Their other birthstone, Tourmaline, can appear in virtually any color under the sun, since it actually gets its pigmentation from trace minerals found within the stone (with pink and green being some of the most commonly used in jewelry).

No matter your color preference, October birthstones offer plenty of options, which is why we've rounded up some of the prettiest examples that make the best jewelry box additions.
