Artique Boutique's pretty little Ethiopian opal stud earrings have flashes of fire, and a touch of twinkle, to light up your day. Great for everyday or special occasions.

Featuring stunning little 3mm or larger 5mm (genuine!) Opal stones from the Welo opal mine fields in Ethiopia. Beautifully sparkly with a gorgeous opalescent glow. Vibrant flashes of fire run through these gems, dancing across their surface and changing with the light; flashing yellow, green, blue, violet, red and orange.

Set into 14k gold fill or sterling silver ear posts, they come with matching butterfly backs.

Various sizes available, see Size Guide further below.

► OPAL is the birthstone for October and 34th anniversary, and is so incredibly pleasing to the eye - it inspires love, luck, hope and happiness.

♥ GUARANTEE ♥ Genuine, real, natural, untreated gemstones! NOT lab created, glass filled, dyed, cubic zirconia or imitation! I guarantee all my gemstones as natural earth mined stones, ethically sourced from reputable suppliers. Please be rest-assured that you are purchasing a genuine item as described in this listing.

► GOLD FILLED JEWELLERY is the next best quality after solid gold - it is not a plated finish and therefore will not rub off. Also known as ‘rolled gold’; a solid layer of gold is pressure bonded to a base of sterling silver and/or other quality metals, such as copper, and then rolled together so that the gold is layered throughout, from the outer layer right through to the core. Gold fill is indistinguishable from solid gold but costs significantly less because of its base metal inclusion, and if properly cared for can last a lifetime.

► ► ► DETAILS:
* Opal stone 3mm approx 0.05ct
* Opal stone 5mm approx 0.30ct
* Opal stones from the Welo opal mine fields, Ethiopia
* 14k gold fill or Sterling silver ear post and butterfly back
* This is for one PAIR of stud earrings
* Pairs are matched as best as possible, but very slight variations may occur due to natural stone qualities.

* Do not get opals wet as they absorb water and it dulls and discolours their appearance. Allow to dry out naturally if they do get wet.

► ► SIZE GUIDE:
* 2mm -- TEENY - great for a second piercing, for children, teens, & those who want a really teeny tiny discreet stud.
* 3mm -- TINY - good for main or second piercing for those who want a tiny, minimal stud. An affordable size for otherwise expensive precious stones.
* 4mm -- SMALL - great for most people who want a small stud that is easy to wear & noticeable without making a statement.
* 5mm -- MEDIUM - for those who want a more noticeable earring.
* 6mm -- LARGE - relatively large & noticeable for a stud earring, makes more of an impression.

    ► TAKING CARE OF YOUR JEWELLERY:
    * Your jewellery is handmade and may have delicate materials which will appreciate your gentle loving care and handling.
    * All jewellery is best stored away from heat, light, damp and chemicals.
    * Please protect your jewellery from contact with liquids that may tarnish metal, change the colour of metal, coat gemstones and weaken components over time (such as perfumes, hair sprays, moisturisers, water, etc).
    * Please don't sleep or do vigorous exercise whilst wearing jewellery as it may break, which may in turn also injure you.
    * Bracelets are especially vulnerable as they are susceptible to getting caught on jumpers, clothing, doorhandles, etc, as well as weight bearing from being rested upon. Please don't sleep in bracelets - it will damage them if you roll or lie on them, they are not meant to bear this kind of body weight, pressure and friction.

    A stunning pair of Opal studs, I was really impressed when I unwrapped them, also exquisitely packaged and sent swiftly. I shall wear these a lot , a crucial addition to my collection of bling. These are worth every penny I paid and come to think of it , a great gift for that special friend too. Thank you 🙏🏻


    My wife adored them! Thank You!


    Bought for a friend. She loves them. Excellent quality. Would buy again.


    Item arrived well packaged, the artist communicated that there was a delay in the shipping from the post office and wanted to reassure me that it was in the mail. The earrings were beautiful and showed a beautiful natural colouring.


    Beautiful, delicate earrings. Quality as expected.
