October birthstone gift guide

Those of you with birthdays in October are not only lucky enough to have been born in one of the prettiest months when the Autumn colours really take hold, but you also have opal as your birthstone. 

Pink opal with it's delicious milky pink hue is one of our favourites here at Honey Willow. Sometimes known as 'the stone of hope', it symbolises protection, healing and faithfulness. The name opal comes from the Sanskrit upala, which means jewel.
