October Opals

Virtues and power

A precious stone once thought to embody the virtues and powers of all colored stones, the Opal is the month of October's birthstone. Found throughout the world, the fields of Australia are known to be the most productive for mining this precious gem. At Dillon/Rose we want all of our pieces to represent love: love from the person wearing the piece and love from creating that special piece.
We consider ourselves quite lucky when it comes to opals. Seth's uncle has been infatuated with and cutting opals for decades. He gifted us the first few opals we made into jewelry and ever since lets us see his batches of freshly cut opals before making them available to the public, which means we get the best of the best. One of my favorite things to do when we visit Uncle Keith is look through his little bucket of raw opal and spray the rough looking rocks with water to see the colorful veins of opal peaking through.
