Considered throughout the centuries to be enormously lucky – knights took opal into battle believing it protected them – as did women who used opal is a strengthening talisman in childbirth. It was Queen Victoria however who really revived the passion for opal jewelry in the late nineteenth century when she wore it regularly and gave suites to her daughters.
