Blue Gemstones to Love

Blue Gemstones to Love

September 2022

Floating In the Blue

With September comes sapphire season. This month's birthstone is beloved the world over - and throughout history - as a symbol of abundance, devotion, and peace. But in the same way that we love the other blue beauties like tanzanite, turquoise, aquamarine, opal, and lapis, we adore sapphire for its stunning good looks.

From the frostiest shades of aquamarine to the gold-flecked, midnight-toned lapis and everything in between, blue is a color that simply plays well with others.

There is a wide range of opal varieties, but Irene designs exclusively with the finest available. Play of color is the most distinctive characteristic of an opal, and it occurs in endless unique patterns and color combinations. Boulder Opals are part ironstone and part opal. They are sourced from the cracks and fissures of rocks where opals have formed over time.SHOP OPAL
