FAQs about Opal Earrings
Opals have long been considered good luck and have been used to ignite creativity. Opals are also the birthstone for October, giving those born in that month a highly versatile stone to treasure, with a variety of colours to best represent them as an individual.
Opals vary in price from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. The lighter the colour of opal, the more common it is, and therefore more affordable. Small opal earrings are often more affordable than opal rings that feature a larger stone. Brilliant opal earrings can be found within any budget.
Opals can be worn every day, with care. Opals range from 5.5 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale, which makes them softer than other common stones, but not completely vulnerable. An opal ring in a claw setting may be more delicate than some of your other pieces, and shouldn't be worn during sports or gardening. Opal earrings and opal necklaces are worn in places that they won't be at risk of damage, so you can wear these pieces daily without fear.
Opals are often given to celebrate the 13th year of marriage. Opal earrings make an excellent choice for an anniversary gift, especially when paired with diamonds and white gold.
