Solid Opal Earrings with Opal Clusters
These are a version of my opal cluster earrings in oxidized silver rather than bright. I set the opals in 22k gold bezels on top of the oxidized silver baseplate. The cluster of ethiopian opal rondelles at the base of the stone are wrapped in 18k gold headpins. The earwire is also solid 18k. These earrings measure 5/8 of an inch long. The opal is 8x10mm in size.
I also make a version of these earrings with tanzanite clusters rather than ethiopian opal.
