The Perfect Wedding Gift – Opal Earrings

These made for a beautiful wedding gift, and were a dramatic look and a long-term investment piece for the bride. Opals have magical optical qualities that belie their humble origins as naturally occurring glass. This matched pair was clad in a hand-carved and cast palladium bezel, and paired with a pair of beautiful blue zircon. Blue zircon shares two syllables of its nomenclature with cubic zirconia, but they are not actually related at all–zircon is a naturally occurring stone with beautiful natural color and a high refractive index that makes it so very sparkly!
