Two spectacular Australian Boulder Opals make an impression in the Galapagos Green Sapphire Opal Drop Earrings.  Inspired by the legendary archipelago, these Australian opal earrings reflect the dark volcanic terrain, the white sand beaches, rolling blue waves and the lush vegetation of the island chain.  Their round opal faces, with flashes of blue and green fire upon the earthy striations make them rare and beautiful specimens.  Above the unusual opals stack five green sapphires, carefully selected to align in a Signature NIXIN Opal Ombré Gradient, ranging from teal hued greens to lemon lime, and reflecting the colors of the Darwinian landscape.  These green sapphire and gold opal earrings serve as a reminder that evolution is constant and change is always possible.

This exclusive pair of 14k gold opal earrings are prong set and have a high polish finish.  The handcrafted French wires arc low, allowing the sapphires to cascade near the piercing, and each opal drop is fixed in place, designed to move in unison with the sapphire bar above.  In back, the opal mounting is open, exposing the ironstone base, and a secret engraving awaits; a message intended for their owner.  One of a kind green opal earrings for the ultimate nature lover.

• Caring For Your Jewelry:
Fine jewelry is delicate and should be treated with care. Avoiding any chemical exposures (ie: chlorine, lotion, etc…) and removing your jewelry during rigorous activity (ie: exercise or gardening) or at times of potential impact is advised. Please contact us at for assistance if your stone is loose or your setting is catching.

• Cleaning Your Jewelry:
Soft and or porous stones such as (solid) Opals, Turquoise, or even Pearls, can be cleaned with a soft toothbrush and warm soapy water. Diamonds are harder, but not impervious to damage — the care instructions above are safe to apply. Unless specifically recommended by us, we advise against the use of chemical cleaners on your NIXIN Jewelry. Avoid ultrasonic devices with soft and porous gemstones as well as pave. Have your jewelry professionally cleaned as needed.

• Opal Jewelry Cleaner:
We do offer a gentle cleaning agent on-site that is safe to use on most jewelry (including Opals), though we always recommend testing a small area prior to doing a full cleaning. We offer a bottle version of our foaming NIXIN Jewelry Cleaner to handle your jewelry cleaning at home and a Jewelry Cleaning Pen you can fit in your purse and take with you wherever you go.
