Lorraine: 8mm 3.2cts Fiery White Opal Crown Set Stud Earrings Silver


Lorraine: The gorgeous and fiery beauty of opal gemstones hand set into stylish and elegant solid 925 Sterling Silver 4 point Crown settings. This set features a stunning and gorgeous set of our created 8mm Australian Fiery White Opal domed, round cabochons (cabs). A gorgeous addition to any wardrobe and an ideal gift as the birthstone for October. For those that aren't aware of it, synthetic Opal is actually preferred to natural opal for jewelry items. Natural Opal is not particularly well-suited to being used in jewelry since it's a relatively soft gemstone, breaks easily and has to be protected from sunlight and many chemicals.
