“October”

   

Description from Granny Nancy: I do love to look for gemstones that duplicate the varied types of gems that serve as birthstones. In this case, for the month of October. The yellow are opals and some are pink tourmaline, which are supposed to be a good substitute for opal.

The prettiest opal is an Ethiopian opal. They truly are gorgeous, but you won't find any here. But I did sneak in some cream colored ceramic. Moonstone is also an acceptable substitute - especially rainbow moonstone.

    Absolutely lovely! What a beautiful blend of color. The pink tourmaline is exquisite surrounded by those well-chosen gemstones.

    Nancy, I agree that Ethiopian opals are so beautiful. I was lucky to buy one in an on line auction at on of jewelry networks for $25. I cherish it and my rainbow moonstone ring. They come in so many colors and look illuminated inside with many colors. However, I do love this pick! I love opals that maybe I should be an October baby.

    I have never been all that crazy about my birthstone. So I have adopted other stones. I have a gorgeous blue turquoise. So if you like opal and pink tourmaline, have at it! :)

    At one time most family birthdays were in October; I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know October’s b’stone. Your selection is gorgeous, a fave!

    Yes, congrats on your POD!
    My mother and two of my sisters were born in October, (mother deceased), so I’ve always been on the look-out for nice, but affordable opals. I do love the rainbow moonstone, so I would imagine it’s opalescence qualities make it a good substitute.
