7-13mm Genuine Raw Australian Opals
Pure Sterling Silver Post and Back
24k Gold Dipped
The earring post and back are made entirely with pure sterling silver, which has been plated with a very thick layer 24k gold. Unlike other electroforming artists, I use sterling silver instead of copper on my ring shanks, chains, and earring mechanisms. Copper is a less precious metal than silver, known to turn your skin green and to tarnish very quickly under normal circumstances.
You will receive one of the sets in the photo, or an earring set almost identical to what is shown in the photographs. Since natural one of a kind gemstones are being used, each pair will be ever so slightly different. Please note this grade of opal varies in color intensity, and also has natural inclusions, some of which are white and some of which are gray. The hue varies from white, green, blue, violet, and pink, and some may exhibit multiple colors, including rare flashes of red. Please note while I choose pairs that are very flashy, this grade of opals is about a 3 out of 5 on a scale of opal flashiness. 5 out of 5 can cost in the hundreds and even thousands of dollars for this size. To keep my prices accessible to all buyers, I Have chosen to use this mid-range opal. Each pair of earrings is not identical, as each individual opal is one-of-a-kind.
