October Birthstone Jewelry

About October Birthstone Jewelry

October birthstone jewelry wearers can choose between two gemstones: opal or tourmaline. The first brings to mind the flashes of lightning and fireworks. Opal has been revered throughout history as the luckiest and most magical of all gems because a rainbow of colors can appear in one stone. This gemstone was a favorite of Queen Victoria. Tourmaline, the “gemstone of the rainbow”, occurs in a wide range of colors. Some stones are even multi-colored. The most popular variety is pink –sometimes known as Rubellite – which is believed to promote balance and protect women.

    Opal & Diamanté Leaf Brooch by Marcel Boucher

    This opal brooch from 1950 looks like fine jewelry, with its fiery art-glass center surrounded by sparkling diamanté.

    Pink Tourmaline & Sterling Flower 1940s Hobé Brooches

    , ,
    This pair of Hobé brooches is delicate and lovely. Each is a flower with a deep-pink tourmaline (almost fuchsia) center. The sterling petals on one side are furled; those on the other side feature a beautiful open-work design that is known as fretwork. You can wear the pair together on the shoulder of a dress or jacket, or on either side of a collar. What a lovely adornment for a bride's hair! These brooches were hand-made. Although they’re marked “DESIGN PAT’D”, I have been unable to identify a design patent that looks like them.
