It is October–lots of changes going on all around us! The leaves are turning colors, the temperatures are getting cooler, long sleeves and boots are in full effect–let’s not forget about the ever-important gemstone of this beautiful month–the OPAL! Known for its phenomena called play-of-color, the kaleidoscope of colors swirl in different patterns, making each opal individually unique. With no two being exactly alike, October babies are very proud of their birthstone. However, anyone can wear an opal and Arik Kastan has some incredible pieces to satisfy your opal needs.
Whether you want a bold look, like the Peacock ring, set with opals clustered around a single rose cut diamond…or a dainty, subdued stack consisting of an opal eternity band, and other stackable opal rings from the Arik Kastan line…it is all about the casual glow of opals for fall! Something about sweaters and opals, they just go so well together! A continued favorite of the Arik Kastan jewelry line–the blossom stud earrings, seen here set in all opals–are stunning for fall. Try several pairs mixed and matched with your fall wardrobe for a fun look!
If you are into superstition and folklore, opals have a rich history. In the Middle Ages, opal was considered a stone that could provide great luck because it was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in the color spectrum of the opal. It also brings wearers clarity and enhances memory, as the stone is mostly made up of water. Any of these opal jewels from Arik Kastan can be your lucky talisman! Take your pick!
