Description

AAA+ grade,6x4mm Oval, Natural Ethiopian Welo Fiery Opals in Sterling Silver Ear studs. Feminine, petite, and stunning earrings for those looking for high quality, exquisite jewelry. Ethiopian Opal


These are sold in pairs. Choosing (1) quantity means purchasing a pair. If interested in a single earring, convo me to discuss and for a price.


Matching Necklace: https://www.etsy.com/listing/261649915/6x4mm-ethiopian-opal-pendant-necklace


**(Purchase both earring and necklace to receive 5% off the separate pricing - reflected in the price in the listing directly above.


*Note* 6x4mm is comparable to a diameter of 1/4" long x 3/8" wide to give you a visual image if you are not familiar with measurements in millimeters. They are not large in size, but their fabulous color play with its dramatic array of colors and shades, demands the attention of anyone who sees them.


The excellent play of color in these opals is absolutely incredible. The dramatic and varied flashes of color have to be seen to be believed.


There are multiple shades of blue, green, yellow, and orange that flash from its depths depending on the light source and angle. I uploaded photos that captured some of those colors as they flashed simultaneously.


These are from a recently discovered mine in Welo, Ethiopia and are considered amongst the finest Opals there are.

Ethiopian Opals are still available through first markets, but it is anticipated that Ethiopian mines will be played out' mid 2016, making them all relatively expensive and difficult to come by. Thus, your earrings will only increase in value as time goes on.


Interesting Factoid: The flashes of color come from the play of moisture that is within the stone. The large variety of colors is what makes these such highly desirable Opals and why they are becoming increasingly rare. Excellent color play.

In another listing, there is a 3mm round Ethiopian Welo Opal set of earrings for those who prefer round rather than oval opals https://www.etsy.com/listing/236879483/ethiopian-welo-opals-aaa-grade-opals-3mm

"Oh, the spectral delight that is Opal, the “Eye Stone.” Like lightning in a rainbow, it flashes its brilliance with even the slightest movement and claims notice by all who witness its phenomenal “fire.”

Opal with play of color has always been considered one of the most desired gems in the marketplace, earning it the undisputed title as 'Queen of Gemstones'. With the discovery of precious (and stable) opal in Ethiopia's northern Welo District in 2008 this remarkable gem has reclaimed its throne and rules again as one of the most in-demand gemstones in the 21st century.

I stand behind the quality of my work and will do whatever I can to make it right if there is ever a problem. Your happiness with your new piece of jewelry is my goal.

All my jewelry is created in a non-smoking studio in NH .

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
NH has no sales tax so I will not be collecting any sales tax for purchases. If Etsy happens to require sales tax to ship to your state, that is out of my control, but I do not collect nor add any sales tax to your orders.

Full payment must be made through Etsy's direct checkout before your order is processed. Payment methods are all major credit cards and gift cards. I do not see nor store your credit card information so your orders are secure & confidential. I am willing to accept Paypal if any customer specifically requests it prior to placing an order.

Your payment is taken at time of purchase and your order begins processing immediately. Each item listed can have multiple sizes made, but not all sizes are always in stock, only the one size specifically listed in the second paragraph of each listing is guaranteed in stock. If the size desired is in stock, I will typically ship the same day. If I have to make the item in a size not already in stock, I will typically ship within the next 3 days. If it is an especially busy season, I will notify you right away as to the necessary time frame to complete your order so that you will have the option of agreeing or canceling.

Custom Orders: Feel free to contact me for custom orders for items you do not see listed or variations in any item listed that you might want. If your request is something I can readily make, I will work with you to create your custom item. Upon mutual agreement on all factors of your item including design, colors, size, price, shipping time, etc., I will create a custom listing with the price of the item and a detailed description of the item. A photo placeholder will be in place until it is completed. Etsy will let you know the listing has been made and work will begin immediately following your purchase. Custom orders require payment in full prior to making your piece and cannot be canceled (once work as begun). I also do not accept returns on custom orders for any reason other than arriving damaged (proof is required).

Returns & exchanges

REFUNDS, RETURNS, DAMAGES, and INSURANCE CLAIMS:

Customer happiness is very important to me and I will make every effort to work with you whenever there is a problem with an order. Please do not write negative reviews or reviews less than 5 stars without contacting me first so that I have the opportunity to work together with you for a satisfactory resolution.

REFUNDS: Most items may be returned for a refund or exchange within 7 days. The returned item must be received in its original condition, unworn and undamaged. Original shipping charges will not be refunded and return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. There may also be a 20% restocking fee deducted from the refund price. Please contact me for an RA# for all returns.

Returns showing signs of wear or damage that you are responsible for will disqualify the item for a refund and the item will be returned to you COD. If you've accidentally damaged the item, contact me to discuss if repair is possible. Each situation will be handled on a case by case basis and charges to repair something you've damaged is at my discretion. If it is a quick fix, I may fix it for free, it if requires additional materials and more than 20 minutes to repair it, I will let you know prior to your sending it for repair. Contact me prior to shipping anything, whether a simple return, a defective claim, or to be repaired.

DAMAGE CLAIMS: Please open and inspect your merchandise upon arrival. Damage claims made beyond 2 days of receipt WILL NOT be honored. After 2 days, it can only be assumed that it arrived intact and that any damage occurred later due to something out of my control. Note that I am not responsible for damages caused by USPS service or by anyone who opens, mishandles, or damages the item after receipt. Shipments are insured, so damage by USPS insurance claims are discussed below.

As long as claims are filed within 2 days of delivery to the address given in the order, I will wait up to 15 days (after delivery) for you to email or snail mail clear photos of the defect claimed. Then I will issue an RA# to be included in the returned package along with an email copy of the shipping label that you should print to use for your return. Once returned, I will inspect it to ascertain the cause of the reported damage. If it is a material or structural defect that I am responsible for, then at my discretion, you will receive a refund, a free repair, or a free replacement. I will, of course, pay the return shipping to you.

If the damage is not my responsibility, but happened because of something accidentally done after receipt, then the item will be returned to you C.O.D. after notification to you. If it is easily repaired, I will contact you to discuss how it might be repaired and what the charge would be.

If you fail to follow up with photos and required information within the 15 day limit to get an RA, I will no longer honor any damage claims. If you know, in advance, that there will be a problem with providing the photos and information within 15 days, be sure to inform me in your original damage report. I can make exceptions for good reasons that are reported right away, but I will not do so if you fail to meet the established time limit without informing me ahead of time. The reason for requiring photos is to establish if the item CAN be repaired for you and exactly what the damage to it is.

NOTE: Packages damaged by the USPS are discussed below under Insurance Claims and are not included above under returns & refunds.

HOW TO RETURN ORDERS .Once an RA# is issued, you will need to carefully repackage the item in the jewelry box it came in with the original protective wrapping around it to avoid further damage upon return and then put it into a suitable exterior package for redelivery. If you are able to use the original shipping container, please do so as it will be the least expensive and safest option for return. You will also need to return the original invoice with the RA# issued clearly written on it. If you don’t have the original invoice, please include the order #, item name, and RA# on a piece of paper together with your name, shipping address, and email or telephone number so that I can properly credit the right account and easily contact you as necessary. Items returned without a claim and an RA# will be returned to you COD and no refund will be issued.

My direct contact information is available on your invoice to notify me right away if unable to do so through the Etsy app or via email. Phone calls should be limited to between 8AM and 8PM EST, however convo or email claims are able to be accepted at any time of day for review by me as time permits. For your protection, email or etsy claims are the best option to insure that you can prove that you placed a timely claim. Damage claims are accepted only once per order. Submitting any additional claims for the same order will result in automatic denial of the additional claim, so please inspect all items within your package upon receipt to ensure that there is not more than one item damaged.

Please note that if the package arrived damaged due to carelessness by the post office, then it is the post office that is responsible for the damage and payment of claims, not me. Do not file a damage claim with me for that as I cannot honor claims that are not my responsibility. However, I will gladly provide you with the necessary information to place a claim with the USPS through their website and assist you as best I can so you will receive compensation for the item. Contact me for a copy of the original USPS shipment information for your report to USPS. It is required before you can submit a claim to them.

INSURANCE CLAIMS: All items are shipped insured, so claims for damage occurring during shipment must be to the USPS. Note that documentation and photographic evidence is always required by the Post Office as part of their insurance claim process. If the box or shipping envelope is obviously damaged, it is up to you to be sure that you photograph the unopened package to show the damage to the box prior to opening it in case there is also damage to the item caused by the USPS inside. If you are able to, also have the delivery person document that it arrived damaged because that will increase your chances of a successful claim against the USPS. They require photographic evidence of all damage, including damage to the exterior box, if any.

OTHER DAMAGE: If you damage the item or accidentally break the setting due to rough use while wearing it, it is often possible for me to repair it for you. I will gladly repair it at a reasonable cost if you contact me. I will need clear photos of the damage to see if I can repair it prior to shipment. If it is minor and easily fixed, I may do so at no charge, however, that is at my own discretion. All cases of damage that are not my responsibility, you will be expected to pay shipping both ways. If it requires replacement materials or extensive work to repair, I will inform you prior to you sending it to me so you can decide if it is worth the cost to you for me to attempt to repair it. There are no guarantees that I can repair a broken item sent to me because of factors I cannot always see in photographs, but, if I discover that I cannot repair it for you after I receive it, there will be no charge other than the cost of return shipping. Clear photos help avoid shipping charges for something not repairable, so please provide clear photos of the entire piece so I can properly establish if it appears to be repairable. This does not imply nor suggest that there is an extended warranty on your item other than it being made with quality materials and will arrive undamaged, ready to wear.

Fine jewelry should not be worn while doing yard work, gardening, or any heavy cleaning. Please use common sense and remove them prior to doing the type of chore/work that might easily damage a setting or cause a stone to be lost.

LOST ITEM CLAIMS: Etsy and PayPal do not support refunds for lost merchandise if tracking shows the package as Delivered. However, as I am able to, I will assist you in investigating claims of non-delivery even if the tracking information shows that the items was delivered to you. I am not allowed to offer refunds for products that are listed as delivered by the USPS as it is impossible to prove that you didn't get the item. I will do everything I can to assist you, but you will have to work directly with the delivery service to resolve that type of problem, so please, be sure that your delivery address is accurate when you place your order to minimize that possibility. If it is a common occurrence for you, you might want to consider paying for signature delivery to prove who accepted the package.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns about your products if you have them. I will do my best to work with you to resolve any issues.

Shipping policies

SHIPMENT SCHEDULE for finished items will be within 1 - 3 days of your order unless it is a custom order, the time of which we will agree upon prior to work beginning. I generally ship USPS first class mail with a delivery confirmation included. It seems to be equal time wise to priority shipping but considerably less expensive. However, if you need faster delivery for a specific reason, contact me to see if I can do that for you prior to purchase if you have a time constraint for delivery. I will automatically insure items over $50 at no cost to the customer. If preferred, for an extra charge, I can also add signature confirmation to any shipment so that it will be easier for you to track where it was accepted if it is common for your mail to go astray. Convo me if you want that added.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: At this point, I ship to select countries. If you are an international buyer in a country that I don't presently ship to and really want an item, please convo me so we can discuss the options. I would have to change the item to reflect international shipping costs to accommodate you. Buyers are responsible for all customs fees and other charges related to shipping overseas. I cannot alter the description nor the purchase price to avoid VAT or customs fees so please do not ask me to. It is illegal.

ORDER CANCELLATIONS AND NON-DELIVERABLE ITEMS: Please double check your delivery address and notify me immediately if you notice any errors in name or address. After the order has shipped the only remedy is a possible US Post Office intercept to correct shipping address errors and that is not guaranteed to stop the shipment as I have no control over the USPS. If your order is returned to me as undeliverable or refused, a refund is issued minus the shipping charges and a 20% restocking fee to compensate me for the item being 'out of stock' during that time period. Shipping costs are non-refundable. So double check your shipping information that it includes all information necessary for the item to be delivered directly to your door prior to finalizing your purchase and contact me immediately if there's any error discovered in your email purchase notification.

It is possible to cancel an order once it has been placed and payment has been accepted, but normally only if it is canceled within two hours of the purchase because shipment occurs so quickly for finished items. I use Etsy's USPS shipping app so you will get an email with tracking information shortly after I create a shipping label. It is a hassle to cancel once the shipping label has been created so please be certain of your orders before placing them. However, if it is not yet shipped and no work has actively begun on the item when you contact me to cancel, then there will be no charge and a full refund will be issued. If work has actively been done on the item ordered, there will be a reasonable charge for time and materials deducted from the refund.

Custom orders already begun cannot normally be canceled or refunded, but will be handled on a case by case basis. If the item is not so personalized or completed that I am able to reuse the materials or sell the item as ordered, then I will cancel it for you and issue a full refund. If it is fully or partially completed and unsellable to anyone else, the order cannot be canceled for a full refund, however, shipping charges and the value of whatever materials & time that were not yet used will be fully refunded provided that it has not already shipped. Each case will be decided on its merits and reasons for cancelation. Therefore, please be absolutely certain that you want any custom orders prior to placing the order. I am happy to work with you to make whatever you might fancy, but it is unreasonable not to be paid for time and materials if the order is canceled and the materials rendered unusable.

NOTE: Personalized items cannot be returned and refunded unless they are received defective in materials or workmanship.
SHIPMENT SCHEDULE for finished items will be within 1 - 3 days of your order unless it is a custom order, the time of which we will agree upon prior to work beginning. I generally ship USPS first class mail with a delivery confirmation included. It seems to be equal time wise to priority shipping but considerably less expensive. However, if you need faster delivery for a specific reason, contact me to see if I can do that for you prior to purchase if you have a time constraint for delivery. I will automatically insure items over $50 at no cost to the customer. If preferred, for an extra charge, I can also add signature confirmation to any shipment so that it will be easier for you to track where it was accepted if it is common for your mail to go astray. Convo me if you want that added.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: At this point, I ship to select countries. If you are an international buyer in a country that I don't presently ship to and really want an item, please convo me so we can discuss the options. I would have to change the item to reflect international shipping costs to accommodate you. Buyers are responsible for all customs fees and other charges related to shipping overseas. I cannot alter the description nor the purchase price to avoid VAT or customs fees so please do not ask me to. It is illegal.

ORDER CANCELLATIONS AND NON-DELIVERABLE ITEMS: Please double check your delivery address and notify me immediately if you notice any errors in name or address. After the order has shipped the only remedy is a possible US Post Office intercept to correct shipping address errors and that is not guaranteed to stop the shipment as I have no control over the USPS. If your order is returned to me as undeliverable or refused, a refund is issued minus the shipping charges and a 20% restocking fee to compensate me for the item being 'out of stock' during that time period. Shipping costs are non-refundable. So double check your shipping information that it includes all information necessary for the item to be delivered directly to your door prior to finalizing your purchase and contact me immediately if there's any error discovered in your email purchase notification.

It is possible to cancel an order once it has been placed and payment has been accepted, but normally only if it is canceled within two hours of the purchase because shipment occurs so quickly for finished items. I use Etsy's USPS shipping app so you will get an email with tracking information shortly after I create a shipping label. It is a hassle to cancel once the shipping label has been created so please be certain of your orders before placing them. However, if it is not yet shipped and no work has actively begun on the item when you contact me to cancel, then there will be no charge and a full refund will be issued. If work has actively been done on the item ordered, there will be a reasonable charge for time and materials deducted from the refund.

Custom orders already begun cannot normally be canceled or refunded, but will be handled on a case by case basis. If the item is not so personalized or completed that I am able to reuse the materials or sell the item as ordered, then I will cancel it for you and issue a full refund. If it is fully or partially completed and unsellable to anyone else, the order cannot be canceled for a full refund, however, shipping charges and the value of whatever materials & time that were not yet used will be fully refunded provided that it has not already shipped. Each case will be decided on its merits and reasons for cancelation. Therefore, please be absolutely certain that you want any custom orders prior to placing the order. I am happy to work with you to make whatever you might fancy, but it is unreasonable not to be paid for time and materials if the order is canceled and the materials rendered unusable.

NOTE: Personalized items cannot be returned and refunded unless they are received defective in materials or workmanship.

Additional policies

GIFT BOXES: I have special ring & earring gift boxes for anyone who'd like to purchase one for any item they might be buying as a gift for someone else. They are an extra charge that will be quoted to you upon request. Normally, items are shipped in simple, plain gift boxes suitable to protect the item during shipment and then wrapped with protective wrap and shipped inside of sturdy shipping boxes. The regular boxes are also suitable for gifts, but are typically not the fancier ring or earring boxes with flip tops and recessed spaces for the item. The item inside will arrive intact regardless of which type of box it is shipped in. However, the fancier boxes add to the cost of an item, so rather than assuming that every customer wants one and is planning to give it as a special gift, I ship in a variety of 'plain vanilla' (gold or silver typically) boxes unless a customer requests an upgraded box. Shipping will be additional to accommodate the additional weight and volume.
