🟣MATERIALS and QUALITY STANDARD:
▪️The materials used in creating my jewelry are ONLY genuine top quality Ethiopian Welo Fire Opal of AAA quality grade or higher, high quality genuine moissanite of VVS or higher clarity and authentic precious metals: solid 925 Sterling silver, 10k or 14k yellow, rose and white gold.

I NEVER use doublets/triplets opals, artificially enhanced, lab created, or man made opals;

All returned items have to be in their ORIGINAL UNWORN CONDITION with THE SIGNATURE TAG ATTACHED. Please contact me within 3 days after receiving your order to report any issues with it;
🟣OPAL PHOTO DISCLAIMER:
▪️Each Opal is very unique and special. Just like you are. That’s why we love them.
But this gemstone has certain features that make it very hard or impossible to represent them via photos and videos. Please keep this in mind when you are looking through the available items and the listing images. The item you will receive is going to LOOK DIFFERENT from the listing photos and videos, but THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NORMAL and is to be expected from any natural opal due to its very nature and physical properties;
▪️Being the true chameleons, natural opals change their appearance significantly depending on the slightest changes in the lighting environment, camera angle, movement and everything around them.
Even if the two opals have extremely similar features, they still will offer their own unique way of interacting with the light, which is what defines this gemstone and gives it its "personality". And just like people, opal’s personalities are very unique and are ALWAYS CHANGING depending upon their surroundings;
▪️The play of color in any natural opal is constantly changing following every subtle movement that results in a different way the light interacts with the the opal’s complex inner structure to produce what we call visible “fire”. This interaction happens as a process in time occurring very quickly, so every moment the play of color looks completely different from the moment before that. Even the same opal is going to look different from its own photos depending on the current lighting environment that exists around it;
▪️Even making a video does not provide a solution to this problem either, because of the exposure related artifacts that either dampen all color or exaggerate it in some cases. because camera settings cannot readjust as fast as the opal can change its appearance in response to the changes in the light angle;
🟣PHOTO AND VIDEO GALLERY:
▪️A collection of video clips and photos of different opal jewelry: items that I have made or sold previously, new or current pieces that are not yet listed, design suggestions, ideas and examples for custom orders - get to know what the jewelry I make looks like and get inspired to create your own custom piece!
🟣MY WORK ETHICS:
▪️Each item I create is always made with care, attention and love. I try to approach my work with a positive mindset of gratitude for this unique opportunity to bring something joyful and beautiful into other people's lives: it is exhilarating to know, that something I made would mean so much for another person who would wear that piece of jewelry as a symbol of a life changing event or as precious memory that they will carry with them through years
▪️This is an amazing experience for me as well and I want you to know how much I appreciate your support of my work: my one-person-run business EXISTS ONLY THANKS TO YOUR FEEDBACK AND YOUR KIND REVIEWS! ❤️

Opal jewelry is EXTREMELY FRAGILE and cannot come in touch with any liquid including water.
Please make sure you DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR OPAL JEWELRY TO WATER!
- Do not wash hands, take shower, do strenuous activity, run errands, clean the house or exercise with opals still on.
- Take off before bed and clean and buff the metal parts regularly to avoid using chemical cleaners.
- Micro paved Jewelry cannot be placed into an ultrasonic Jewelry cleaner due to the shaking, which might cause the tiny stones to fall out.
-Jewelry damaged due to not following the care instructions IS A FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER AND CANNOT BE RETURNED, EXCHANGED OR REIMBURSED.
-“care tips” card is provided with your order.
- YOUR JEWELRY WILL AND SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT FROM THE LISTING PHOTOS EVEN IF THE PHOTOS ARE TAKEN OF THE ACTUAL OPAL
- The truth about this gemstone is that its uniqueness, its ever changing play of color, its brilliance, color intensity or fire pattern cannot be captured on a still image. A natural fire opal can look green on one photograph and red on the other with every subtle change in light angle or its intensity.
- There is a SIGNIFICANT amount of attenuation present when you look at an opal under natural daylight compared to its artificially exaggerated brilliance seen under the artificial indoor light;
- it is NORMAL for opals to change their appearance, so please keep this in mind that even the same opal NEVER LOOKS THE SAME!
I use only high quality precious metals and natural gemstones in creating my jewelry. The quality standard for this shop is set to be especially high.
I use my best quality stones for creating items offered at this shop, so each and every item is not only made to order but is typically made with perfect or nearly perfect gemstones, with excellent time consuming level of craftsmanship seen in each unique design.
▪️I do not use stock photos for a reason: I design everything myself, and take my own photos of the items upon completion of the item so you can be sure that the jewelry sold through this store is going to look exactly as pictured with the exception of gemstones, which are all unique and will never look the same.
