Many people are not aware that created Opal is actually preferred to natural opal for most jewelry items. Natural Opal is not particularly well-suited to being used in jewelry since it's a relatively soft gemstone, is subject to chipping and breakage, requires regular care and maintenance, and has to be protected from sunlight and many chemicals and contaminants such as hair spray, perfumes and the like.
Earrings are brand new.
Made with Solid 925 Sterling Silver.
Stamp or Hallmark: 925 (on the post).

ABOUT THE GEMSTONES:

About our Ball Stud Earrings: We use only half-drilled gemstones in our ball stud earrings. You are ensured of a much stronger mounting since the posts/pegs are set into (or inside) the stones.
