I have always felt like a lucky gal because my birthstone is a diamond- not that I'm flooded with diamonds every year or anything. But my own birthday will be here in just a few days and since my big day is so very close to May, I have recently heard a calling to adopt May's birthstone, the opal. Did Cate Blanchett's earrings at the Oscars have something to do with this realization? Mmmm...perhaps...

But Chopard jewels just aren't in my cards. As luck would have it, Elle magazine recently posted an image on Instagram featuring opals from WWAKE. (See image at top.) WWAKE's site immediately captured me! They have such a creative use of organic sensibility juxtaposed with just the right amount of glamour. Their pieces are interesting and special but wearable enough to put on every day. Opals have been the cornerstone of some of their newest pieces but certainly a few diamonds can be found as well as hammered gold and even a few rose gold pieces. I couldn't be more excited to have discovered them...and just in the nick of time too. ;)
