The Colors of Fall are Found in Opal and Tourmaline

As the autumn season continues on (even with our toasty San Diego weather), we at Unicorn Jewelry and Watch Boutique offer Happy Birthday wishes to all our friends born in the month of October.

If you, a friend, or a loved one was born this month, you have the choice of two birthstones: Opal and Tourmaline.

Green Tourmaline

In some cultures, green tourmaline represents creativity, prosperity, abundance, compassion.

Tourmaline has become a favorite gemstone among many of our customers. Since it is available in a wide variety of colors, custom-made jewelry here at Unicorn can be offered in your favorite color. We also carry individual Tourmaline gemstones that are multi-colored all by themselves. One multi-color style of this affordable gem is known as watermelon tourmaline. We have a wide selection of watermelon tourmaline pieces that are beautifully presented in green, pink, and white colors (just like the colors you see in a slice of watermelon). Typically, any single or combination color of Tourmaline shows beautifully on a white gold ring, necklace, or bracelet.


Opal derives from the Greek Opallos, meaning "to see colors change". Opals present rainbow-like varieties of color: creamy white to black with speckles of yellow, orange, green, red, and blue. An opal's beauty as the centerpiece of a ring or necklace makes for the perfect gift for yourself or someone special. (Even those born in months other than October enjoy having a brilliant rainbow of light-changing color on a necklace, brooch, or everyday ring.) Three-dimensional color and light radiance makes opal the perfect gemstone for jewelry gift-giving, any time of year.

Unicorn Jewelry - opal
In the ancient world Opal was considered to be the most bewitching and mysterious of gems, worn for its virtues of soothing and strengthening the sight, healing diseases of the eyes, and providing great luck.


We have a large selection of tourmaline and opal in our store, awaiting your inspection and selection. Unicorn Jewelry offers these beautiful gems ready to wear and enjoy, or select a loose stone from our inventory and let Fred help you design a piece of jewelry you can call your own, or present to a friend or loved one.

Even though it’s mid-October, there’s STILL time to come to Unicorn to select an opal or tourmaline jewelry item to celebrate your special person’s (or your) birthday!
