Opal engagement rings are majorly trending with millennial brides-to-be. Opals are one-of-a-kind gemstones, vary in color, and can make a beautiful engagement ring within a budget realistic. We're smack in the middle of an opal resurgence, and more jewelry designers are now offering opal engagement rings in every shape, color, and size.

If you're looking for deep meaning with your engagement ring stone, look no further. Opals have incredible significance attached to them, dating back to the middle ages—it was believed opals had the power to make their wearer invisible. Known as "The Queen of Gems," Opals have traditionally belonged to those celebrating an October birthday. In recent years, opals have gained popularity among millennials— probably due to their unique nature, since no opal stone is like the other.

Opal engagement rings also carry a vintage, Art Deco vibe due to the stone's popularity in the late 19th century. Opals rose back into fashion when Queen Victoria became fascinated with them—she had her very own personal collection of opals, and often gave them away as gifts. Other famous opal lovers in history include Cleopatra and Empress Josephine. So, yeah, opal lovers you're in good company.
