October Birthstone Bracelet - Opal and Tourmaline

Birthstone jewellery is a beautiful keepsake to honour the ones we love, and the ones we've lost. A precious gemstone to represent each month of the year.

A kaleidoscope of colours can be found within the flashy Opal stone, with each stone as unique as our fingerprint. The Opal was originally discovered here in Australia, and we produce a whopping 95% of the world's supply!  The Boulder Opal, is the second most valuable Opal (aside from the black), and is formed when veins of Opal forms within the fissures and cracks of Ironstone. Opal is the gemstone of the 14th wedding anniversary.

Legend tells us that Tourmaline found its stunning range of colours as it passed through a rainbow on its way up from the earth core, and because of its spectrum of colours, it has often been confused with other gemstones. It's the 8th wedding anniversary gemstone.

Our handcrafted October birthstone bracelet includes 3 stunning Boulder Opal beads which flash blues and greens. The central Opal measures 12mm, with the others measuring 6mm. The bracelet also has 8mm Tourmaline and Lava Beads along with 4mm Rose Gold stainless steel beads. This can also be made with silver stainless steel and gold stainless steel.

  • Wear & Care

    Your aromatherapy bracelet is made for use with theraputic grade essential oils (we recommend and love doTERRA).  Simply place one or two drops onto your fingers and massage into the Lava Beads.  Allow the oil to be absorbed by the Lava before inhaling the beautiful aroma.

    The scent will remain on your stone for up to 3 days depending on the oil. Simply layer additional oils to change or add to the scent.

    Please be careful to avoid oils coming into contact with other elements of the lava jewellery as they may tarnish over time.

    Semi-precious and precious gemstones require a little more TLC than stainless steel or metallic jewellery - please avoid wearing your gemstones whilst cleaning as the chemicals may damage the stones.

  • Warranty

    Should your bracelet break within 3 months of purchase, we will offer one free restring. The cost of postage to return the item to us is at the expense of the buyer.  Oleander Place will return the bracelet to you via regular mail.

    Please ensure that you return as many beads as possible as we can only replace a max of 3 gemstone beads.  The rest will be made up of lava beads.

  • Children

    Due to the size of the beads, and other elements used in our diffuser jewellery, we do not recommend these for children under 3 years old.
