Opal is such a beautiful natural gem

              Milky opals were commonly used in late 19th century jewellery when their versatility resulted in a wide assortment of designs such as bangles, set as a line of graduated cabochons with diamonds in between, cluster rings, fringe necklaces and crescent brooches. Superior examples exhibit an attractive play of red, green, and blue colours whilst inferior milky opals are almost completely white with minimal flashes. Milky opals were also set with rubies, emeralds and demantoid garnets in naturalistic designs such as butterflies. Mid-Victorian opals exhibiting a softer play of colour were sometimes set in scrolling gold brooches and necklaces enamelled in royal blue. The traditional birthstone representing October is the opal. There are many types of opal that have different colored base hues including white, red, purple, and black.

Mexican fire opal

These vibrant gems were used in Art Nouveau and Art Deco diamond jewellery. Fire opal is usually deficient of any play of colour but exhibits a singular shade of translucent mid to deep orangey – red.
