What’s the October birthstone? Opal! This is the OG of gemstones – in fact, it takes its name from the Latin word for “precious stone.” This iridescent gemstone truly displays the full spectrum of hues, from a glimmering white to a full-on rainbow.

Other gemstones sparkle thanks to the angle shapes they’re cut into. Opals, however, are rounded and polished externally in order to display their impressive internal facets. Every precious stone is singular, but opal jewelry is unique on a whole different level.

Opal rings

Opal rings are perfectly designed to flaunt the brilliance of the October birthstone. As you go about your day-to-day, gesturing, and wiggling your fingers, your movement allows the light to hit your opals in all the right spots. Opal rings glitter like no other!
