6 Unique October Birthstone Gifts

20160606 vintage opal in box mktg

When preparing for the holiday season or a loved one’s birthday, choosing just the right gift can at times prove difficult. If you’re shopping for someone born in October, a piece of jewelry featuring the month’s birthstone makes for a timeless treasure.

October has two birthstones, opal and tourmaline. Opals are popularly known for their milky, rainbow-colored glow and fire. With hues ranging across the whole color spectrum, opals fit many different tastes. In the past, opals were believed to symbolize purity and hope. Like opal, tourmaline is also admired for its wide variety of colors. According to ancient legend, the stone traveled along a rainbow collecting all of the rainbow’s colors, which is why tourmaline is found in such a multitude of hues. It has also been believed to strengthen mind, body, and spirit.

Both of these gemstones have inspired jewelry makers for many years, resulting in beautiful vintage pieces that span the decades. These one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry are perfect for the one-of-a-kind October birthday celebrator in your life.
