I’m not too into following what people are wearing at these things, but I love to look at their jewelry! Check out these dreamy opal earrings on Busy Phillips.
I love the luminescent quality of opals – the simplicity of the bezel settings shows off the beauty of the stones and shapes in Irene Neuwirth’s work here. Brava!
Opals come in a really wide variety of colors. They are produced mainly in Australia, and can also be found in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Turkey, Indonesia, Brazil, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Ethiopia.
In 2008, NASA said they had discovered Opal deposits on Mars. I’m ready to explore…who’s coming with?!
