Opal, considered the "queen of gems," can flash patterns of color representing every hue of the rainbow. Believed by ancient people to actually contain fire, Opal has long been ascribed many mystical and healing properties. Geologically, Opal is more than 60 million years old. The rainbow of fire is produced by the diffraction of white light through a micro-structure of silica spheres. Each size sphere reflects light of a different wavelength.
This british sterling silver jewelry piece is set with an inlay of a matrix of iridescent white opal. Handcrafted by our London silversmith, and hallmarked for a guarantee of purity, it appears to flicker and change with every movement of the wearer. Square earrings, .375" studs.
Everday Yet Elegant Earrings I purchased two pairs of these earrings--one for my daughter-in-law and the other for a close friend. The earrings are definitely beautiful and versatile. Both of the recepients have told me that everyone raves about the ways they catch the light and display beautiful colors. The earrings can be worn with any outfit since the design is simple yet elegant. What's not to love about this jewelry?
