Birthstone jewellery is always a thoughtful gift to give when celebrating the birthday of a loved one.

October birthstone opals are radiant precious stones. Once the gem of royalty and believed to bring good luck, they come in a variety of shades, from milk to black and even fire opals. Each one filled with dazzling colour, caused by light hitting tiny particles inside.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for something to celebrate an October rose in your life, what could be more appropriate than a special piece of jewellery in October pink or rose gold?

Choose from our rose gold collection. Browse our pink October birthstone selection, or consider something with a little sparkle. Like our gorgeous and affordable pink Zirconia or Swarovski crystal pieces.


Opal and Rose, the October birthstones

Giving birthstone jewellery as a gift is the perfect way to show your affection.

Because jewellery can be worn every day, it's a reminder of the special bond between you and your friend, family member or partner. Or cherished and worn to celebrate important anniversaries and occasions.

Did you know that October birthstone opals are precious stones made of silica (a substance like glass) and water. Like sunshine and rain, when you add light, it creates a rainbow effect.

So the spectacular colours you see as a result range from blue, to green, yellow, orange, purple and red. Just like a rainbow.

If you’re looking for a special but affordable gift for someone with an October birthday, this Nomination rose gold charm could be just the thing.
