Classy Opal dangle earrings:
These classic opal earrings feature a genuine 5mm Idaho Opal triplet. The drop-style earrings have opal cabochons and hang from a secure lever-back style ear-wire. Wear these adorable earrings dressed up or down and sterling silver gives a contemporary look. The range of colors go with just about anything and the secure ear-wire makes this set of earrings something you can wear every day.
These Idaho opal earrings will all be slightly different in colors though I do my best to match 2 for earrings. The nature of opals makes each stone slightly different. The Idaho opal triplets often show a green background color with any or all the other colors flashing through. These colors flash as the light hits the stone at varying angles. This dance of color is often called opalescence. The color play may consist of large, individual flashes of color or may be tiny speckles of color. The intensity and distribution of these colors can be a determining factor when valuing an opal.
Opals are one of the most recognized birthstones for October. They are a soft stone but the nature of a triplet protects the opal with a quartz top. These earrings are proudly made in Philipsburg, Montana.
