The opal has long been believed to bring good luck. While it's a relatively modern practice to wear opals, people in ancient times used to carry them for luck and safety, and others believed that it would render them invisible.
In more modern times, an unfortunate incident surrounding an opal in a novel by Sir Walter Scott created the misconception that the opal is a bad luck gemstone, in spite of thousands of years of history stating otherwise. But, this misunderstanding hasn't stopped the opal from becoming a favorite in gemstone jewelry.
We love opals for their unique swirls of colors. Just like people, no two opals are alike. Capture a little of this individuality in an opal nose ring.
