October babies have two incredible birthstone options to choose from--opals and tourmalines--making it difficult to select just one.

Opals are magical gemstones whose internal flames and distinctive look have captivated the hearts of many. Once seen as a dated gemstone, the opal’s popularity has skyrocketed over the past few years.

Tourmalines, meanwhile, offer versatility and variations of color in a way that few other gemstones can.

So whether you choose opal or tourmaline, one thing is certain: those with October birthdays are treated to jewelry designs from traditional to trend-setting and everything in between.

Here are few Amanda’s Style File selects for October birthstones.
