‘Opal’ of My Eye

Opal of my eye

Opal is October’s birthstone and to follow-up on my post from last year, O Is For Opal, I’d like to add a few new pieces that are currently the ‘opal’ of my eye!  (Please excuse my corny sense of humor).

Happy Friday everyone!

    Each style is unique and gorgeous. I love seeing Opals in a new light. Usually when I come across Opals they are in a dated setting or style which takes away from its beauty. Thanks for sharing!
