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 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. Dangling earrings, 1.25" drop, posts.
Exquisite These earrings were puchased as a gift for my daughter. I have also purchased two other pairs of earrings and a ring from Uno Alla Volta. All of the items have been beautiful as well as viewed as unique by anyone who has seen them. The quality of the craftmanship is supurb. They are so eye-catching one cannot help but notice them. My daughter has worn this particular pair of earrings numerous times and received compliments without fail. If you hope to give someone a gift that will be appreciated and admired, these earrings hit the mark. I really cannot compliment this jewelry enough.
