The wearing of birthstones is thought to bring good luck and good health. Astrologers long ago attributed supernatural powers to certain gemstones.
The birthstones we associate with certain months now are not necessarily the same ones as in ancient times. Once, color was the most important feature of a stone. Ancients did not distinguish between a ruby and a garnet, for example.
October's birthstone symbolizes faithfulness and confidence. Traditionally Opal... the word comes from the Latin opalus, meaning "precious jewel."
October happens to be 1 of only 3 months of the year in which society has attributed multiple colors/stones that symbolize its birthstone. October can be Opal or Tourmaline... but tourmaline can be either pink or green. Being that both green emerald and peridot have been taken by other months we have decided to focus on the pink for this collection.
Using Rose, Light Rose and various accompanying colors the October Birthstone Jewelry Collection is a soft and pretty line that is sure to please any October baby!
