More about these Opal and Gold Drop Earrings:
There is no mistaking the magical appearance of the opal. The play of color on each one of these October birthstones is unique. The 14k yellow gold is the perfect compliment to the ever-changing appearance.
Ethiopian opals (like these) grow in large volcanic deposits high up in the hills while Australian opals are mined beneath the ground.
Opals do require a bit of special care. Because they are composed of 5-10% water, they can dry out over time and lose some color and possibly even crack. Always store them in moist and cool places to maintain their beauty.
