By refracting and bouncing light off silica found within the stone, opals shine in a way no other gemstones do. The name comes from the Ancient Greek opallios, meaning 'to see a change of color.' The opal gemstone is a kaleidoscope of color and light. Though blue and white are often seen as traditional opal colors, JTV offers opal in a wide variety of shades. Black opal has become very popular, and red, orange, yellow, green, purple, pink, and even multi-color opals are all available for you.

Opals are found all over the world, most commonly in Ethiopia and Australia, but also closer to home in locations like Mexico and Nevada (the Black Fire Opal is one of Nevada's signatures). The birthstone of October, opals make a fantastic gift for those born in the tenth month. Discover opal jewelry from JTV's diverse collection of specialized brands like Aztec Style, Bella Luce, Pacific Style, Timna Jewelry Collection and more.
Having been around since antiquity, there's been many legends surrounding opals. In the Middle Ages it was said that opals were lucky and that their constantly shifting colors meant that all gemstones were held within them. Women from this era found the opal so bewitching that it became common practice to wear these gemstones all the time in the hope that it would keep their hair color from fading. These superstitions may not be entirely true, but with opal jewelry this colorful and vibrant, it's hard not to believe a little bit in magic.
