Genuine solid opal earrings in recycled 14k yellow gold. These opals have a great play of color on a transparent base; red, green, orange, and yellow. They look fantastic at night.

These are genuine, natural opals, not doublets or triplets or imitations. Hydrophane opals are unique in that they lose their color when they absorb water (for example if you wash them or take a shower while wearing them), then regain their color when they dry out. They are also known to be more stable against cracking or crazing than traditional opals from other deposits.

SHIPPING: Please allow around a week (occasionally two) for shipping. Many of my earrings are made to order, and I end up with quite the workload sometimes!

SIZE IT UP: This is my small 4mm size; please take a look at the modeled photo for an idea of how big they are in "real life". More modeled photos at http://www.distinctionjewelry.com/info/lookbook

These deceptively simple earrings may end up being your new favorite accessories! Coordinate them with your clothing, or put them in and forget them - they are small but fabulous. These are fantastic if you want a simple earring set to keep your holes open when you don’t feel like fiddling with hooks or dangles.

My goal with these was not to make a cheap earring, but a top quality set that would provide lasting beauty and comfort. Solid, heavy-duty recycled 14k gold holds the gemstones securely in their settings - no glue to give out over time, no plated metals to wear off or irritate your ears.

Sturdy, solid sterling silver clutches are made to grip the posts snugly, resulting in an earring that stays in your ear even if you lead an active lifestyle or sleep in your earrings. The posts are heavy-duty and slightly shorter than some, making them resistant to bending and more comfortable to sleep in.

All gemstones are genuine and high-quality - no cubic zirconium, crystals, or lab-grown faux bling here! I choose my stones carefully and I think you will find that the quality is well worth the cost. They are all real, selected knowledgably from trusted vendors and represented honestly in my product descriptions. I test stones in my own lab as well as sending samples out for independent verification.

Stone size and type: 4mm cabochon opals
Other trade names: Ethiopian opal, Welo opal, hydrophane opal
Gemstone treatments: None known
Special care notes: Opals are fragile and scratch easily. Keep them protected from scratches and blows, and do not use chemical jewelry cleaners, ultrasonics, or steam cleaners. Be aware that they will loose their play of color when exposed to water, but will get it back when they dry out. Because they absorb liquid so readily, they may darken or change color if exposed to things like hair spray, body lotion, etc. I would advise putting them on after your beauty routine is complete.
AGTA treatment code: N....I think.
