The designer from Variance, Nicole, prefers Australian opals, especially those from Lightening Ridge, as we find them to be less delicate. But mostly when we think about opals we love the variety- that one of a kind fire color formation. Also, there’s an uncovering process. Rough opals are covered in a sediment so you are not typically sure what you have underneath. We try to cut them to maximize the fire and frame the fire color, almost like framing a picture.

These opals are held by 14k gold claws.

Opal is the birthstone for the month of October.

Opal is an emotional stone and reflects the mood of the wearer.  It intensifies emotions and releases inhibitions.  Encourages both freedom and independence.  Opal enhances cosmic consciousness and induces psychic and mystical visions.  It stimulates originality and creativity.  Helps to release anger and claim self worth, aiding in accessing and expressing one’s true self.  Opal strengthens memory.  It encourages an interest in the arts.  Wearing Opal brings loyalty, faithfulness and spontaneity.
