Opals can be described as a kaleidoscope of delicate soft blue, green, white, and orange hues. The range of color can vary quite a bit. An Ethiopian Opal can appear to have a yellow tint while an Australian boulder Opal has more of the blue/green tone. Although Opals have a beautiful appearance, they are extremely delicate. The stone is rated as “fair” for everyday wear. Joseph’s Jewelry is the premier location for Opals on the Treasure Coast. From custom creations to designer favorites, we can take care of your every need.

“The color of the rainbow. The glow of the Northern Lights. The dramatic flash of summer lightning. All the colors of the evening sky are captured in the mysterious, shifting hues of Opal. With its pulsating display of fire and color, Opal was long thought to hold magical powers. For this reason, rare Opals were often reserved for royalty. The crown of the Holy Roman Emperor held a superb example, a fiery red Opal called “The Burning of Troy”. This was given as a gift from Napoleon to Josephine – forming part of the crown jewels of France. Queen Victoria also loved Opals, and often presented them as wedding gifts. The changeable color and flashing fire seen in Opal are symbolic of love, life, hope and truth. Its rainbow of color makes Opal an ideal fashion accessory with year-round appeal, particularly among those who seek drama and harmonic balance. Opal is often the chosen gem to celebrate those born in October. It also is the gem used to commemorate the 12th, 14th or 18th wedding anniversary.”
