These earrings are made with black fire opals and feature 925 sterling silver wire with a 4-prong setting. The silver has a rhodium or white gold finish, and there is a closure at the back of the earrings.
The opals have a diameter of 7x5mm and are oval and faceted. They have a high grade of AAA/AAA+ fire quality and display vibrant primarily red colors when light shines through them. This listing includes the best pairs currently available, and they have a wide range of fire colors visible under any lighting conditions. My jewelry is crafted with precision and attention to detail using the best quality gemstones and settings. I also offer pieces made with impeccable taste and elegant versatile style, so these earrings combine the quality gems and professional craftsmanship which you will definitely enjoy.
The opals used in these earrings are natural, solid, and were mined from the earth. The gemstones are sourced ethically and have not been altered or enhanced in any way. They retain their original color and appearance and the two stones match one another perfectly!
You have the option to customize the style of the earrings. You can choose between simple leverback dangles or add a Celtic knot or a flower design element to the main gemstone. You can combine different elements to create a unique and one-of-a-kind pair of earrings. You can refer to the photos from other listings or the photo galleries of finished items to select elements that appeal to you.
These drop-style earrings are made with solid 925 sterling silver and have a white gold or rhodium plated finish. If desired, similar earrings can be made with a leverback closure and additional customizable elements.
▪️I dedicate significant time, effort, and attention to creating each custom-made piece of jewelry to ensure it reaches a level of attainable perfection. Each item is exclusively made upon order, with an average fulfillment time of 1-2 weeks. However, there may be circumstances beyond my control that could extend the processing time up to a maximum of 4 weeks. Since I do not maintain a solid gold inventory, extra time is needed to order settings for all solid gold requests, and there may be occasions when silver settings need to be reordered as well. Additionally, I handle all aspects of the work on my own, meaning that if I am unavailable due to reasons such as health or other commitments, there is no one else to take my place. Nevertheless, I do accept urgent orders, which can be completed within a shorter timeframe. To ensure timely delivery, please specify the deadline for your item when placing an order.
▪️Your purchase will come with a luxurious velvet jewelry box, a polishing cloth, and a sheet of care instructions. I make sure to prioritize the safety and security of your item, packaging it in a way that protects the jewelry from any damage during transportation or oxidation. When giving the item as a gift, please remember to include the care instructions. The default shipping method is USPS Priority Mail, but you can choose to upgrade to Express mail if you prefer.
🟣PAYMENT PLANS ARE WELCOME:
▪️I accept very flexible payment plans with minimum $100 per month payments. Payments are accepted via PayPal or by other methods that are convenient for you;
🟣MATERIALS and QUALITY STANDARD:
▪️Exclusively, I utilize authentic, high-grade Ethiopian Welo Fire Opal of AAA quality grade or higher, alongside high-quality moissanite of VVS or higher clarity and precious metals (such as solid 925 Sterling silver, 10k or 14k yellow, rose, and white gold) to create my jewelry.
▪️Only natural, earth-mined, and solid opals are employed in my designs, ensuring ethical sourcing. I strictly avoid using doublets/triplets opals, artificially enhanced, lab-created, or man-made opals.
▪️For a superior finish that resists tarnish and minor damage while requiring minimal maintenance, I prefer rhodium or white gold plated solid 925 sterling silver instead of regular silver. This polished and durable coating enhances the appearance of the jewelry.
▪️Every solid gold, natural diamond, and moissanite is subject to authenticity testing. I can therefore guarantee that all materials utilized are 100% genuine, safe, hypoallergenic, and obtained from sustainable sources.

🟣OPAL PHOTO DISCLAIMER:
▪️Each Opal is unique and special, just like you. That's why we love them. However, it is difficult or impossible to accurately represent the features of this gemstone through photos and videos. Please keep this in mind when browsing through the available items and their images. The item you receive may look different from the listing photos and videos, but this is completely normal for a natural opal due to its properties.
Natural opals are like chameleons, as they change their visible colors depending on lighting, camera angle, and movement. Even if two opals have similar features, they will still interact with light in their own unique way, giving them their own "personality". Just like people, opals have unique and ever-changing personalities depending on their surroundings.
The play of color in a natural opal is a result of the interaction between light and the opal's inner structure, creating a combination of colors known as "fire". This is unique to each opal and is influenced by the movement and changes in surrounding light. Without light, the fire in an opal cannot be seen. Therefore, an opal's appearance depends on its continuous interaction with light, resulting in different color combinations, brightness, and fire intensity. Even the same opal will look different in its own photos depending on the lighting environment at any given moment.
Even videos cannot solve this problem, as camera settings may dampen or exaggerate the colors and vibrancy of the opal. This is especially true for white opals of the highest quality, which may appear overexposed and colorless in videos. These videos cannot capture the true essence of the opal in real life.
🟣PHOTO AND VIDEO GALLERY:

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.

-“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 can be fully appreciated only when seen in real life. Besides any slight change in the light angle causes complete change in the opal’s appearance and visible colors
- 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 precious metals: 10k, 14k solid gold and 925 sterling silver. My favorite gemstone has always been Ethiopian Welo Opal, but now I also use moissanite to create my jewelry. Both fiery gemstones are very different but are satisfying to work with as they are capable of creating a flawless piece of beauty and perfection to be the result of my creative effort. I do not settle for mediocre or ordinary: my jewelry is made with RARE and UNIQUE gemstones. I personally test precious metals and gemstones for authenticity, and guarantee that all materials used in my jewelry are safe, hypoallergenic, authentic and are original designs - never something that was mass produced or made to resell. My jewelry is original and offers true value.
I have recently introduced an initiative that allows everyone to have a custom made version of any item listed in my shop by changing the center gemstone into ANY GEMSTONE THAT THEY WANT. You can choose from a wide selection of birthstones and choose from any setting in my shop to create your perfect gift and mix and match pieces for making gifts for friends or family members or anyone - the idea is that the jewelry can be purchased for an AFFORDABLE PRICE and be created for you within the same processing time as the item in the listing. All of the gemstones I get are SUSTAINABLY SOURCED and are produced by small businesses that are usually local and family owned, so the process is very transparent and straightforward. Give it a try!
Now I am offering more moissanite jewelry than ever before due to the changes in the industry allowing me to purchase moissanite products that are CERTIFIED and come with a LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY. The quality of the moissanite gemstones is INCREDIBLE, and the colors are absolutely stunning, so I have been working on my solid gold Bridal and Engagement Jewelry Collection featuring new and unique designs created with moissanite and natural opal in the same elegant style that I have always been offering to my customers: I adore dainty jewelry and I design with an open heart for everyone in mind, so my pieces are perfectly versatile and fit nearly any occasion. My craftsmanship and the gemstone quality is known for its highest standards.
