Is It Bad Luck To Wear Opals If It's Not Your Birthstone

I don't know where I heard this, but I wondered if anyone else had heard it as well.

DD's boyfriend gave her an opal and diamond bracelet (very pretty) last night and that saying was the first thing that p.opped into my head. Of course, I would never tell her that

It's very bad luck not to wear the bracelet your boyfriend gives you.

The tradition is


It is bad luck to BUY opals for YOURSELF

They must be given to you as a gift.

Wow, you learn so much from the DIS!

Serena....had to laugh, this boy is sooo nice to her she put the bracelet on right away. Too bad he's off to Montana for school in the fall my DD will be heartbroken as she is only a soph.

Yes, and my sister swore by it. She had opals that her ex gave her when they were married. I think she eventually got rid of them.

Well I suppose it's bad luck if you believe that sort of thing. If you want something to be bad luck than it will. I've never heard that statement, but I'm also not supersitious.

I wear an opal ring that was given to me by SO. I also have an opal necklace that he gave me. I think I have pretty good luck An opal is dd's birthstone, so that is why he gives them to me.
