Opal and Keshi Pearl Drop Earrings
Pliny the Elder wrote in 75 BCE that opals "display at once the piercing fire of rubies, the purple brilliancy of amethysts and the sea-green of emeralds, the whole blended together and flashing with a brightness that is quite incredible…while others speak of it as resembling the flame of burning brimstone.” In fact, the word "opal" comes from ancient Byzantine Greek word, opallios, which means "to change color."
These 3mm natural, ethical Australian opals are veined with fire, shifting from white to blue to red as the light catches.
10mm Japanese keshi pearls are suspended from a delicate 18k gold vermeil chain, creating a sense of movement as you enter the room.
These earrings are both delicate and startling - you can pair then with a white tee and jeans or an evening gown.
