Perfect for the Price
These opal earrings are my new everyday earrings - I wear them next to my 1/4 carat diamond studs. The settings are solid, and the backs are secure. The gems are beautiful, and not too big.
The only potential downside that I would warn others about: The stones aren't perfectly matched. Â One of mine is pretty milky, with little to no fire, where the other has flashes of both reds and greens. Â If this would bother you, you may want to spend a little more money on a different pair of opal earrings. Â I personally appreciate their unique, natural beauty.
