October Birthstone Jewelry
The October birthstone is a symbol of faithfulness and confidence. Its name comes from the Latin word opalus, which means precious jewel. It was once believed that opal jewelry could be worn to repel evil and protect eyesight. Birthstones can be worn by anyone, but they are also associated with the month of a person’s birth. As such, they make great birthday gifts. Birthstones date back to Biblical times when everyone would wear the birthstone of the current month. So in October, everyone would wear opal. It was a nice tradition, but people more commonly give opal jewelry as birthday gifts today.
