October's birthstone, opal comes in a spectrum of translucent colors. In fact, this attribute made the opal an extremely lucky stone in the Middle Ages. Whether showcased in sterling silver or combined with other gems, opal is unforgettable.
The Peruvian opal, also known as "blue opal," tends toward rose, blue and pale green. Pure opal is colorless while black opal is quite rare and valuable. Andean designers Sandra and Lily incorporate the gem into serpentine jewelry or pair it with natural chrysocolla. Bali's Caine adds opal to sleek pearl chokers, and India's Nalinee presents the stone in drop earrings. A perennial favorite is the birthstone ring.
