October is one of our favourite months at Honey Willow.  It's the month when the soft golden sandstone buildings of Bath are lit up with autumnal foliage and the gardens are a tangle of both late summer roses and early winter berries.

We also love October's birthstone, the opal.

Opal is believed to be a healing, protective stone which represents fidelity.  For Honey Willow jewellery, we use milky pink opals, which look great with either gold or silver and flatter most skin tones.
