Desert Wind+Cultured Sterling Opal+Sterling Silver Hand Fabricated Post Earrings
Gorgeous Sterling Opal rests in my hand fabricated silver settings, and below dance silver hand fabricated charms representing the wind in the southwest desert, and the big rolling dust storms....perhaps unpleasant, but a part of nature non-the-less, and beautiful in its own way!
These post earrings measure 1 and 5/8 inches from post to end of longest charm.
The top portion is 13 mm total in diameter, with the opal being 8 mm.
These post earrings come with both sterling silver ear nut backs, AND rubber backs.
SO lightweight, swing-y, and southwest-inspired!
About Sterling Opal:
This cultured Opal is GIA certified, lab grown here in the US, and is comprised of nano particles of silica dioxide. In order to get the GIA certification, the product must be chemically the same as the natural product. Sterling cultured Opal meets these standards. It's a beautiful, solid product!
I use both Sterling Opal, and other lab-produced opals, but Sterling Opal is GIA certified. I ALWAYS note in my jewelry descriptions which opals, man-made/lab-produced/or natural (and other gemstones) I use, so be sure to read the descriptions in my listings!!!
