Find the Best Opal Bracelet at SuperJeweler!

An opal bracelet makes a great addition to one’s jewelry wardrobe. The colors of opal range across the spectrum. Opal can display a single color, two or three colors, or all the colors of the rainbow. Opals have what is called a play-of-color. This play-of-color is a result of opal’s unique optical body-color property of having tiny impurities within silica spheres suspended in the gemstone material. There are five major body-color types of opals: white opal (the most common), black opal, fire or Mexican opal, boulder matrix opal, and crystal or water opal. For sure, opal jewelry is beautiful and can complement most any color of outfit. Opal jewelry is the birthstone for October which makes it both a great birthday gift and push gift for that special October baby.
