We’ve added a touch of opal to several different pieces of jewelry at Tangerine Jewelry Shop. Our opal pendants feature teardrop and oval shaped stones. We’ve paired opal stones with mother of pearl in our crescent moon necklaces. We’ve also added opal accents to gold hardware in our threader and hoop earrings. Each piece of jewelry is unique and special thanks to this beautiful gemstone.
Opal is beautiful and unique, making it one of the most popular types of gemstones in jewelry. They are a versatile stone that can be easily dressed up or down. They also make lovely accents for otherwise subtle jewelry designs. If you love jewelry, then you’ll love opal gemstones.
A Distinctive Gemstone - unlike other types of gemstones, every opal gemstone is truly unique. The patterns within them are distinct from one stone to the next. They feature interesting internal veins and textures with flashes of light.
Opals come in a range of colors and brightness levels. Darker stones are more expensive as they have added depth and contrasting tones. The brightness of the stone can also vary with some reflecting light more deeply than others. These qualities contribute to their beauty and high demand for opal jewelry.
The Meaning of Opal - opal is the birthstone for October and also used to commemorate 14-year wedding anniversaries. Their meanings vary based on the color of the stone. Green opals are rejuvenating, yellow inspires creativity, black provides protection, red represents sexuality, and white brings good luck. White is most commonly found in opal jewelry whereas black is the rarest. There are also fire opals which cast multiple radiating colors. All opals have inspirational value and are believed, historically, to offer health benefits as well.
