Also called the "Eye Stone," opals are often compared to looking at lightning in a rainbow. The only gemstone whose formation contains a variety of patterns and colors, opals are believed to be so appealing that they inspire love, hope, innocence, purity, and happiness.

Romans valued opal as the most precious and powerful gemstone of all due to its multitude of colors. It is this unique trait that makes the precious stone so popular today. Flashing it's legendary "fire" with every movement, it is hard to ever look away from the mesmerizing gem. The playful colors of opal against yellow gold is one of our favorite combinations.
