Elegant opal earrings These opal drop earrings are even nicer than pictured in the catalog. Opal is my birthstone so I have several pieces of opal jewelry, but all in gold settings. I bought these to have a silver option and they are now my favorites. They really sparkle in the light, very romantic!
