the same, yet different...
Two fantastically similar, yet beautifully different Australian Boulder Opals meet as a pair in the Solstice Earrings. Both are cut in a unique trapezoid shape, rich in shades of purple and indigo, yet there are also differences between them. The Summer Solstice Opal, blushes behind lilac hues, and magnifies the rocky landscape just below its surface. This stone conjures up warm summer memories. The Winter Solstice Opal, bathed in a striking array of blues, evokes the cooler times that accompany winter.
Below each Opal, nestles a carefully curated set of diamond cut Sapphires, intentionally chosen to synthesize with the Opal above. The Sapphires sparkle brilliantly, and speak to the opals through their own language of color. The Solstice earrings are set in a Pink Gold mounting custom built to maximize stone display and minimize pull on the lobes. Their fantastic shape, and nuances in color make the Solstice Earrings a true Collectors Item.

*Opal Note: Opals change appearance under varying conditions. We do our best to capture them in different lighting and as accurately as is possible. Kindly ask questions prior to purchase. // Opals are soft stones; please treat them kindly by avoiding chemical exposures and blunt force.
*Most items are made to order, so please allow for the necessary fabrication time (up to 4-6 weeks; sooner whenever possible).
