Beautiful Opal Earrings For Sale

These particular earrings are what is called crystal opal. This means that the opal does not have a backing meaning that the light seeps down into the stone giving it a translucency in contrast to black opals such as lightning ridge blacks and boulder opal blacks from the Queensland fields.  Opals of course are very desirable in earrings as with many other precious gemstones but they are not always easy to find because each opal is totally unique.

The opal stones might look quite similar

but if you look closely you will find a difference, much like fingerprints.  However this does not take away from the beauty and acceptability of using opals in this capacity because you dont glare at a pair of earrings. Because they are worn in both ears, there is a considerable space between them, depending on how wide your head is LOL

The 14k yellow gold surrounds that encircle these earrings are in the traditional rope design and we have opted to use claws instead of a bezel in this particular pair.  Claws are secure and they allow the opal area to be shown more extensively and the presentation is very straightforward without a lot of complication. And as you can see, the lovely green yellow orange patterns dont need any extra show to make them look outstanding.

If you look closely you will see what looks like a harlequin pattern in one of the stones. Harlequin of course are the patterns on a clowns outfit and the term has been used to describe any opal that has squarish or defined edged patters. Harlequin is the most valuable of all the opal patterns.
