Black opal dangle earrings made with 6mm natural fire opal cabochons which are set into 925 sterling silver setting and is attached to the leverback wire with a Celtic knot connector giving the simple earrings its unique character.

Leverback wire and Celtic connector are white gold plated over sterling silver, but the settings hiding the opals are just sterling silver - I have been slowly moving away from non plated silver, because the tarnish issue is driving me absolutely crazy:) But not everything is yet converted into the same part made with rhodium or white gold plated finish.
The difference is so significant that it might be a different metal altogether: sterling silver is prone to oxidation and turns yellow and unrecognizable in just a few weeks.... Plated silver lasts way longer and does not tarnish even if you do not place jewelry in special protective casings , which is what I have to do with ALL of my supplies. Imagine having to clean the silver when I already get overwhelmed with everything....

So, my honest recommendation to anyone looking for something made out of 925 sterling silver- do yourself a favor and prioritize on buying only silver which has been professionally plated: not only it looks great, but you will save yourself from having to waste time on cleaning your sterling silver jewelry and possibly damage the opal.

Wipe the non plated silver parts regularly, and don’t let it accumulate any oxidative debris - later it will be much harder to get to tight spaces.

You can have black opal cabochons made into.any style: select it in the drop down menu.
Select your finish next: the color of gold finish.

Remember that Celtic connector comes only in sterling silver with rhodium plating, so in rose or yellow gold vermeil you can have.b

🔹Other fastening styles are available, so you can select it in the drop down menu

The opals are 100% natural, earth mined Ethiopian Welo Opals.
The quality of the fire is AAA+ due to the vibrancy of the play of color and the intensity of the fire colors, which are visible under different lighting conditions .

The range of colors also may include orange, yellow and blue surface flashes with bright vibrant display of color throughout.

The opals are perfectly cut to bring out the best colors to the surface as the surface meets the light and will sparkle all the time bringing life into the gemstones as you move. Deep yet bright and mysterious contrast with the deep black base color - very beautiful!

There are all colors present in the fire and despite the relatively small size these top quality opals will get you noticed anywhere! The red fire is absolutely amazing and bright when viewed from some angles and under a light source .

There are two shapes of opal cabochons I use for earrings: : 6mm round and 7x5mm oval in both faceted and cabochon cuts.
I find them the most cost effective and versatile.

There are listings for unique designs that utililize various components but the main part determining the price is the actual pair of opals that’s used to make a pair of earrings.
Occasionally I would get very dark stones or very bright - the price will change accordingly.

Overall, I have better quality cabochon black opals at the moment than faceted opals. I used to sell mostly faceted black opal jewelry. Now I am adding every item made with a cabochon black opal, so you will have a choice between which one appeals to you better.

Please make sure to read the information below and ESPECIALLY the part explaining difficulties with photographing opals.

I set the MAXIMUM processing time of 3-4 weeks but the exact time required to fulfill an order varies greatly depending on a combination of multiple factors both objective and personal.
▪️Processing time is different from the delivery time, which is specified for every shipping method. Upgrading your shipping method to Express does not change the processing time, so if you need your order ASAP, you will have to contact me with a request to expedite your order and make sure that I have received your request and confirmed that I will be able to make your order by the required deadline
▪️I WILL DO MY BEST TO SHIP ALL ORDERS AS SOON AS I CAN, BUT IT IS BUYER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO TIMELY PROVIDE THE NECESSARY INFORMATION REGARDING ANY DEADLINES

-I ship my orders with FREE Priority or Express Mail - depending upon each situation. You can add Express shipping during checkout to make sure you get your item ASAP.

-Every order is fulfilled within the 4 weeks of processing time, but majority of orders are shipped within one week. I also ship NEXT DAY ORDERS - I am very flexible when it comes to processing time.

- Etsy estimates delivery date incorrectly in their tracking info email notification which they send to all customers. I make no commitment to fulfill those unrealistic expectations;

-USPS are plagued with problems this year, so delays are virtually guaranteed, and I am asking you to be understanding that it is rarely me, who is holding up your order.

I DO NOT REPLY EVERY 24 HOURS DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS ADDRESSED HERE: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/912493473011/my-personal-situation-and-how-it-limits

I DO NOT REPLY EVERY 24 HOURS!

This information is not provided by me or given with my permission. I work only part time.

There are certain limitations that prevent me from working every day as I would like to. I have been suffering from chronic fatigue, which “steals” a lot of my time by making me unable to function and slows me down at every turn, so I am unable to respond to you right away. Whenever I get totally burnt out, I have to take a day off or two to recover and rest. I am the only person who runs every single aspect of this business w/o prior experience, so I am constantly trying to finish prior tasks and I am afraid that this might be mistaken for sign of horrible customer service...

CARE TIPS FOR THE JEWELRY I MAKE: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/126677434969/opal-jewelry-care-instructions

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.

“MADE TO ORDER” MEANING: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/843427149775/creating-a-made-to-order-piece-of

▪️Each “made to order” piece of jewelry is made especially for you using materials that cannot be reclaimed or sold right away.
▪️Made to order item should never be treated as other purchases and at the very least the value of time and effort that went into creating a M.T.O piece should always be compensated in a case of a return;
▪️I put a lot of effort into making sure my customers are familiar with care instructions and know what to except from their purchase.
That’s why items that are not meeting expectations or damaged due to not reading care tips are strictly non refundable.
▪️35% mandatory fee is withheld from any amount of refund issued for returning any item that is M.T.O.

UNDERSTANDING NATURAL OPAL AND LEVELING YOUR EXPECTATIONS: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/900279778388/understanding-natural-opal-must-read

- 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!

Average:

My wife absolutely adores these earrings!!! They are amazing and made her sister and mother jealous :) I got extra hugs from them just for how beautiful these are.


These are very nice, petite set of earring. The setting is just like what it shown in the photo and the black opal stone are very, very nice. Lots of red color play in them, both of them. If you like red in your black opals, these are the ones. I knew from the start the size of the stones were 7x5 (small) but I would love to see stones like this in an 12x10 or larger on a set of dangle earrings. That would be phenomenal. They are that nice. Thank you!
