Scroll through your Facebook or Instagram feed and you won’t get far without seeing something about wearable technology.
According to Gartner Inc., an information technology and research advisory firm, wearable purchases are set to increase 16% in 2016, with smartwatches specifically predicted to increase a whopping 66%.
When thinking of antique jewelry, opals - a birthstone for October - may be one of the first stones that come to mind. Their array of dazzling colors has captivated imaginations for centuries.
A note of caution, while many say that the opal will bring good luck to wearers, others believe that opals bring bad luck. If you believe in superstitions, you may want to rethink pulling out your opal jewelry on the next Friday the 13th or Halloween.
