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.
Pink opal sits so beautifully with both silver and gold and its flattering peachy pink suits so many skin tones.
We handcraft our decades necklaces with birthstones for every month of the year and we always use pink opals for October birthday gifts.
Opals come in many different colours and here are some stunning iridescent green and blue opals.
