Lorraine: 8mm White Opal Ball Stud Post Earrings 925 Sterling Silver


Lorraine: Gorgeous and very hard to find 8mm White Opal Ball Stud Earrings on solid 925 Sterling Silver posts. Made with synthetic White Opal these are a gorgeous addition to any wardrobe and an ideal gift as the birthstone for October. For those that aren't aware of it, synthetic Opal is actually preferred to natural opal for jewelry items. Natural Opal is not particularly well-suited to being used in jewelry since it's a relatively soft gemstone, breaks easily and has to be protected from sunlight and many chemicals.


Condition: Brand New.

Item Weight: Approx. 1.6 grams for the set.

Key Dimensions: Each earring measures about 8mm in diameter (or about 1/3").

Metal Components: Solid 925 Sterling Silver.

Style or Setting: Ball stud post earrings for pierced ears.


Gemstone Cut: Half-drilled Round Ball.

Gemstone Size: Approx. 8mm in diameter.

Gemstone Type: Synthetic Australian Fiery White Opal.


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.

Additional Sizes: We typically stock these in even sizes ranging from 4mm up to 12mm. All of the sizes are also available on 14K White and Yellow Gold posts; please see our other items for those listings.

Notes: Items in images may appear larger than actual size. The friction back (butterfly clutch) design may vary depending on product availability. Kate, our model, is shown with the 8mm size.

Great looking earrings

I bought these for my girlfriend for her birthday and she loves them. The opal looks much better than in the picture I think, especially in the right light. They look very nice on her and are the perfect size (as she tells me). I wasn't sure about the size when I ordered them but I guess I got it right.

Exactly as pictured

I just wanted to write and thank you for the earrings--I was truly impressed. They're absolutely beautiful and just what I was looking for. It can be difficult to shop for jewelry on the web since items don't always look the same. However I just wanted to let you know that these look exactly as they are pictured. They're simply gorgeous and I just wanted to say thanks again! Jacqueline.
