OPAL: With an iridescent luster that can reveal a beautiful kaleidoscope of color, the opal has inspired many myths and legends. A white opal with swirls of soft pastel shades is popular for jewelry, but opals also come in black and blue. Opal is the gemstone for October birthdays.

These earrings are beautiful however the backings are to small and do not hold the earrings up against the lobe of the ear. Solution is to take them to your jeweler and have lever backs put on them which is what should have been done on higher end earrings in the first place. I find that Ross Simon has this problem on every pair I have bought, to small and loose backings. I love them so I fix them correctly!!
