Or you can opt for the darker stones created either from black opal and boulder opal or depending on your budget opal triplets and doublets.

If you prefer to make a dramatic statement and can afford it, then opt for rarer stones. Look for black opals and the tantalizing boulder opals which are extremely striking.

Opal earrings are definitely a great way to use opal stones; they are versatile and guaranteed to become your favorite accessories. With a good pair of earrings, you’re sure to look stylish and classy with minimal effort and this makes opal earrings well worth every penny.

What is it about Earrings?

The unique thing about wearing opal earrings as contrasted with either opal pendants or opal rings is that the gems are the closest to your face, and guess where people look first when they meet you? Correct, they usually look at your face! That’s how humans communicate. So choosing the ‘right’ opals for your earrings is very important.

Not that we necessarily want to be prancing around saying ‘look what I’m wearing!’ But we all agree that it’s just nice to look nice and if the girls can ‘dress ourselves up’ a bit, particularly when the focus is on your face, all the better.

Varieties of Opal Earrings

Opal Earrings come in basically two varieties. The ones that sit right on your ear and are held there with a post that pierces your ear and is held on with either a ‘butterfly’ or some sort of clip. These are called studs and are the most popular nowadays as most girls seem to have pierced ears.

What do you do if you don’t have pierced ears?

Having said that, if you are the type of person who doesn’t like having pierced ears, screw or clamp earrings are still available from this site. All you have to do is leave a message in the contacts form and Peter will help you with screw or clamp designs to suit opal. It just means that paying attention to this detail makes the wearing of opal earrings available to everyone.

Opal drops as contrasted with Opal stud earrings

Opal Earrings of course don’t have to sit right on your earlobe either. You can opt for the dangling type pairs, and these come in a variety of shapes and lengths. Some opals are cut in drop shape and these suit earrings very well but with a bit of design and imagination all shapes can be used and combined, not just with opal but with other precious stones such as sapphires and small diamonds.

Making good use of Boulder Opal in Earrings

Boulder opals offer some really interesting alternatives to the design of opal earrings. Some boulder opals are cleaved out of the mother rock in such a way that a natural split occurs and the result is an identical pair from the same opal. One concave and the other convex. This is certainly an intriguing addition to the opal spectrum.

Boulder Matrix in Opal Earrings

Boulder opal matrix is often thick enough to cut two pieces as well and when a slice is made through this material you will find again, a perfectly matching pair with all sorts of interesting patterns and opal colors mixed with the ‘mother’ rock in which the opal formation originally took place. These split faced pairs make some of the most incredible opal earrings you will ever see.
