Sterling silver earrings featuring natural opal cabochons.
Opals are a true miracle in the gemstone world and take roughly 5-6 million years to form. With their high water content, opals encourage the wearer to go with the flow. Put one on when you need to invigorate thoughts, habits or creative blocks with fresh energy.
Ethiopian opals can absorb water very easily, which may happen from exposure to humidity, sweat or direct contact with water. This absorption can cause the colour of the opal to temporarily become more yellow/brown/orange. You should be able to restore the original colour of your opal by letting it dry out naturally - keep it off the skin and be sure to store somewhere with low or no humidity (e.g. not in the bathroom). Because opals are the same hardness as glass, they are also susceptible to fracturing. Keep these factors in mind when choosing when & where to show off your opals!
Handmade - please wear with care.
