🟣OPAL PHOTO DISCLAIMER:
🔴OPALS CHANGE THEIR APPEARANCE AND IT IS VERY HARD TO CAPTURE THEIR TRUE BEAUTY VIA PHOTOS OR VIDEOS!
▪️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 objectively represent them via photos and videos with a degree of absolute precision. 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 visible colors depending on the slightest changes in the lighting environment, camera angle, movement and everything else 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 results from a process of constant interaction between the light and the opal’s complex inner structure producing that unique combination of colors that we know as visible “fire”. It is not only unique to each individual opal, but is produced following the movement and the changes in the surrounding light - without the light you cannot see opal’s fire at all, because light is what creates the play of color. That’s why every opal’s appearance depends upon its continuous interaction with the light which produces different color combinations, determines the brightness, fire intensity etc., Even the very same opal is going to look different from its own photos depending on the lighting environment that exists around it at each specific moment;
▪️Even making a video does not provide a solution to this problem, because of the exposure related artifacts that typically dampen opal’s natural vibrancy of its colors, so an opal may appear of colorless and dull due to overexposure and nothing can be more different from real life since it affects the most beautiful glowing opals of the highest quality….
🟣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!

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!

The main materials used in my jewelry are Ethiopian Welo opals of high quality grade (usually AAA), which are selected for each stone’s unique brilliance and coloring that correspond to the higher market value and offer an objectively better choice for a buyer compared to many other opal jewelry designers that opt for average quality opals to maintain the lower price advantage. I also use high quality moissanite which is a sustainable alternative to natural diamond and is the future of engagement and wedding jewelry. I am happy to help people discover its potential to satisfy their most intricate of desires when looking for the perfect engagement ring and leave diamonds to be the relic of the old times when cruelty was a social norm.
My shop has been consistently offering high quality handcrafted jewelry that are made with excellent craftsmanship, unique original designs and with ethically and sustainably sourced gemstones.
I VERIFY AUTHENTICITY of all the materials that I use for making my jewelry including testing precious metals to confirm the purity of 14k gold or solid 925 sterling silver. I select the best gemstones for Kissed By Fire jewelry collection always trying to find more unique and rare gems that have striking beauty and are genuine and natural gemstones that have not been enhanced, dyed or otherwise altered from their original state.
All verification, testing and quality grading is done by me using my knowledge of jewelry industry and gemology.
Average processing time is 1-2 weeks. Some exceptions include solid gold items needing to be reordered which adds a week, some unexpected delays with shipping etc.,
Each item is made only to order - there are no premanufactured pieces, which I can drop in a mailbox the same day -I put as much time, effort and care into creating each made to order piece of jewelry as is necessary to bring it to the achievable perfection, which you deserve.

Any natural opal is constantly changing its play of color and its entire appearance in response to the changes in its environment particularly shifts in the light angle, its intensity and brightness as well as the light source (natural light causes significant attenuation in opal’s color, while artificial light brings out the most of the hidden beauty within an opal). This is a natural property of this gemstone, and it is expected that the same opal will look completely different from the listing images if the surrounding light is different from the exact moment when the original photos were taken. Opal is a true chameleon and its we love it for this particular quality, but it can be misleading to a new opal owner. Please keep this in mind.

Natural opal requires extreme caution when using liquids, because it can absorb any liquid substance and it might cause permanent damage to the gemstone.
Keep your opal jewelry in a clean dark space, preferably in an air tight container when you are not wearing it.
Do not wear it to do manual work, play sports, swim, wash hands, exercise vigorously or when sweating. Take it off before showering, sleeping or doing anything strenuous.
Keep your opal jewelry away from sudden changes in temperature or from severe cold or hot weather.
Do not wash, submerge in liquid, clean using liquid jewelry or ultrasonic cleaners.
Most importantly: protect your opals from moisture at any cost, because this is the #1 contributing factor to opal jewelry damag
All opals I sell are exclusively Ethiopian Welo opals that are earth-mined, natural, solid and are free of invasive treatments that could significantly alter their appearance or reduce market value. I NEVER use doublets/triplets opals, artificially enhanced, lab created, or man made opals.
However, it is well known that Ethiopian opal does not occur in black variety, so it has to be understood at all times that heat application is needed to change the base tone to the dark black color while leaving the other properties and color appearance of an opal intact and not affected by heat. A heat treated gemstone is still considered NATURAL, and almost all colored gems are heat treated without any effect on their value or popularity.
Please keep in mind that I run the store on my own and have no other person to replace me with tasks that I am not able to handle at any point when I am working on other aspects of the business.
This creates a delay in replying to your messages, so please be understanding and patient and I will be very grateful for your kindness 🙏🏻
I would like to ask you to please contact me prior to leaving negative review, because I will be able to resolve your issue without the need for damaging my business which is struggling to keep afloat due to the limited time and resources that are at my disposal as a single shop owner.
Thank you for supporting my business and I am deeply grateful to each and every one of you ❤️🙏🏻
