Opals Are Not Just for October Babies

Opals don't look real.  That's probably why legend says that opals are bad luck.  Some people believe opals are bad luck for people not born in October.  Another belief is that opals are an unlucky gift unless the recipient is born in October.

This looks like a magical artifact from some wizard's lair, doesn't it?  It's art deco- opal, diamond, emerald, sapphire, and platinum.  Look at how the emeralds and sapphires are individually carved and set in an Egyptian lotus.  I would gladly receive it as a gift even though I am not an October baby.
