Pearls are traditionally linked to wisdom and purity, most likely due to their colouring and subtle glow.
Pearls are a soft stone, easily affected by chemicals and scratching. These characteristics strengthen the connection between pearls, purity, and innocence.
In Ancient Rome, only the ruling class were permitted to wear pearls, which certainly aided in creating a link between pearls and royalty.
The brilliance of opals and their colour or 'fire' varies with each opal, making them a somewhat visually appealing gemstone.
Opals contain a multitude of colours, some only visible from certain angles, creating something akin to an optical illusion when viewed in motion. For these reasons, opals have been linked with the sense of sight.
Wearing opals has been believed to improve eyesight, heal disease, and bring good fortune. The unique patterns found in opals have long connected them to mystery, some have viewed them with superstition, believing them to have magical properties.
Traditionally, pearls were the milestone gift for those celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. More recently however pearls have been so coveted they are purchased to celebrate a 12 year milestone. Similarly, pearls are popular wedding jewellery. Their soft glow and colouring makes them very suitable for white weddings.
Pearls are also the birthstone of June. There are many options, such as antique pearl rings, pearl necklaces, pearl brooches, pearl earrings and pearl bracelets, a large variety to complete a very special June birthday gift.
October's birthstone is opal. Opals are very individual, and have many categories, the main being, white, black, fire, boulder and crystal. Opalescence is a highly valued and sought after characteristic. AC Silver will always endeavour to have a fine and comprehensive stock of opal jewellery, assisting with a special gift not just in October but at anytime of the year.
