Opal is affectionately known as the Queen of Gems, and we couldn’t agree more. When you think of April birthstones, you probably think of diamond. But at Fred and Far, we’re doing April a little differently. We opted for Opal, which is an alternative April birthstone, as our stone of the month, because when it comes to magic, Opals can't be beat.
Is it just us, or when you look at an Opal, do you feel mystified? Well, if you do, you’re feeling the right way. Opal enhances cosmic consciousness, and it can even induce psychic and mystical visions. Wearing an Opal stimulates flashes of intuition and insight, which is most notably apparent in its ability to bring one’s traits and characteristics to the surface for examination and transformation.
Essentially, Opals pick up on your thoughts and emotions and send them back to you for reflection. You’re probably thinking, “What if I have negative thoughts?" We’re here to assure you that even reflecting upon your negative thoughts is a good thing. Opal empowers you to feel and face your thoughts, acknowledge them, and then work to transform them. This mystical stone is be a constant reminder that you are capable of transformation, positivity, peace and magic.
Opals are also known to inspire originality and boost creativity (whether you're a self-proclaimed creator or not!). This, combined with the spontaneity that Opal brings, will allow your creative juices to flow freely while releasing any anger, reclaiming your self worth, and ultimately helping you feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin. You’ll see this manifest in your words, thoughts, and actions, and simply put, your expression of self.
Aside from all the metaphysical benefits that Opal provides over diamonds, there are also ethical considerations as well. Our opals are lab-created, which means they are kinder to the environment and conflict-free. So if you're an April baby, consider celebrating your magic with an Opal.
We have a very limited quantity of mini and original opal Self Love Pinky Rings in our collection now, and we’d love to see these beauties on the queens of our Fred and Far tribe. Get yours before they’re gone!
