October Birthstone

Opal is one of the most unique gemstones that offer a rare shimmer of color that you won't find with any other gemstone. This stunning October birthstone has Latin origins meaning "precious jewel." The Romans nicknamed it "Cupid Paederos" which translates to "child as beautiful as love." It was once believed that opals were a piece of heaven
that fell to earth during a terrible lightening storm. Because of this belief, ancient cultures once set opals in their crowns and necklaces to ward off evil and protect their eyesight. Aside from their alleged mystical powers, opals have always been appreciated for their incomparable beauty and idolized for their ability to refract specific wavelengths of light causing this gem to reflect a subtle glimmering rainbow of color.

November Birthstone

Classic citrines come in a delightful orangey/yellow color with warm golden undertones. Named after the French word for "lemon," these juicy November birthstones are a popular form of quartz. Historically, citrines did not become popular till the Romantic Period; when artisans discovered their sensational ability enhance the shine of yellow gold jewelry. It is believed by many that citrines were once amethyst gemstones subjected to unbearable heat that drastically altered their color. Today fine craftsman of the trade are able to intensify citrine's natural glow and even darken their color by heating the gem. Aside from November birthdays, this gemstone is often gifted to the sick because of its symbolism for hope and strength.

December Birthstone

December birthdays are afforded the wonderful gemstone of blue topaz. The word topaz derived from the Sanskrit word meaning "fire." Although blue topaz is anything but fiery, this delectable gem was thought to cool boiling water and even hot tempers. It is believed to be an all natural healer. Ancient civilizations used this gem to cure insanity, weak vision and insomnia. This gemstone traditionally comes in three different shades named Sky, Swiss and London blue. Often times dark blue topaz is used as a substitute for sapphire jewelry. Blue Topaz is also a symbol for love and fidelity.
