Our 10 Fave Choices When it Comes for Opal Earrings!

Avatar Lizzie 14 Mar 2019 10

We would find it hard to choose our favourite gemstone, but if we had to select our top five gemstones opals would definitely be in there (maybe even taking top spot!) This isn’t the first time we’ve spoken about opals and it certainly won’t be the last. One of things that make an opal truly special is that no two are the same and they are a very versatile gemstone which can be matched with a range of styles.

The opal takes centre stage in these earrings, accompanied by clear sparkling diamonds that have been cleverly positioned around the opal to represent a star-like shape. The circular opal positioned in the centre allows your eyes to get lost in the gems beauty. The added diamonds give the stud a touch of sparkle that no pair should go without. We’d definitely give this jewellery 10 out 10 for design originality and class!

These pair has been crafted using medium sized opal stones that are perfectly shaped into a circular shape. The opals are synthetic gemstones that beam with shimmer that you won’t be able to take your eyes off them, even for a second. One of the things we love about opals is that they present such a wide of range colour making them a fantastic jewellery accessory to wear on practically any occasion. They’re extremely versatile and make a great investment piece to have in your jewelry box.

What takes these earrings one step closer to pure perfection is the addition of diamonds. This jeweller has decided to choose a white topaz diamond. We love these because they give the earrings an elegant sparkle and give that added wow factor! The clear diamonds also complement the opals in colour and allow the designer to achieve the mission to replicate the designed star shape for these earrings which is very clever!

You may have lots of pairs of earrings but this set is a very special pair that we recommend buying for yourself or as a special gift. Opal gemstones are very unique so they make a lovely buy if you want to make a purchase that no one else will have. No two opals are ever the same! The round circular opals are also a great size. They stand out enough to make a statement but are small enough so they’re comfy and not too heavy for your earlobes to cope with. The four individual diamonds positioned around the opal really do add a touch of pure beauty.

These earrings are definitely one of our favourites and we’re certain you’ll feel the same! To make them even more desirably they’re being sold for a medium price which makes them a fantastic investment!

Aztec is in at the moment (when is it ever out?). Check out these Aztec inspired earrings that will add some much needed to class to your wardrobe. As the song goes, walk like an Egyptian and with these earrings you really can!

Designed to perfection these studs are really out of this world. The most striking element of these earrings is the designer’s inclusion of straight and triangular corners representing, our much loved pyramids. The duo of an opal gemstone and sterling silver set the tone for these earrings and give them that sophisticated business women vibe.

The beautiful opal gemstones have been shaped into a clean straight edged diamond that has been held securely in place by four prongs. The elegant opal will inject a wonderful element of sparkle to your earlobes that you won’t be able to live without. The designer of these earrings has then chosen to include high polished sterling silver above the opal that replicates similar to that of a pyramid. The straight, clean, edgy contours really complement the beautiful gemstones by making them stand out.

Even though these are stud pieces it’s important to be aware that the stud joins to the top point of the sterling silver triangle so these opal earrings will drop slightly below your earlobe. This shouldn’t concern most people but we felt it was important to make you aware.

These gorgeous earrings are being sold by Amazon Collection for a medium price. We feel that the earrings are well worth the price and you won’t have to worry about anyone having the same earrings as you!

They would make a fantastic jewellery accessory when going out for an evening meal or a day in the office. Either way they’re a lovely pair of earrings that you’ll cherish for years to come. Buy your pair today!

When we first saw the next item in our list, we couldn’t help but notice how the shape of these earrings mirrors the side profile of a diamond. This is a very unique design that works really well (it also looks very similar to the Superman logo!).

These feature two beautiful opal gemstones which catch light effortlessly. The opal gems are simply stunning and are perfectly sized at 7mm. We think these earrings will make a fantastic choice if you’re looking for something simple and elegant to complete your outfit. They also make a great option if you’re looking for an alternative to a standard pair of stud earrings.

The metal that surrounds them is actually sterling silver which has been plated with 14k rose gold. The light and delectable hue of the rose gold works extremely well with the soft opal gems and you’ll see straight away that the opal gemstones have a wonderful hint of pink and blue.

Due to the diamond shape of them, the lower point of the earring is likely to sit just below your earlobe which gives these earrings a really nice feel and an extra level of depth. Another thing we really like is the way the metal carefully encases the opal gems. This helps to reflect light and has the effect of making them really nice and shiny.

The shape really helps to lengthen the ear and the small-medium size means that they can be worn with a range of other jewellery, without looking too busy. We’d recommend matching them with rose gold jewellery or even better, matching them with something that features another opal gemstone. These earrings show just how beautiful the opal gemstone is!

The lower section of these earrings which features the opal gemstones is connected to the upper part of the earring via a small hoop which means that you’ll get a good amount of movement and ‘dangle’ from your earrings.
