  1. Can I wear Opal Earrings in the shower?

    It isn’t recommended to wear Genuine Opal Gold Earrings in the shower since chemicals from soaps and shampoos can deteriorate the quality of your gemstone (often causing its color to fade over time).

  2. Can Opals be worn everyday?

    If you’re a little extra cautious with them, yes!

    Well, Opals aren’t the most durable gemstones out there. They strike an average hardness rating of 5.5-6.5 out of 10 on the Mohs Scale. So, it goes without saying that if you’re planning on flaunting them every day, you need to pay special attention to their care and maintenance to keep them from all the potential wear and tear.

  3. Do you have to be careful with Opals?

    Absolutely yes!

    Being a fragile gemstone, Opal demands some extra care and attention (since precaution is always better than cure). And lucky for you, we have assembled all the professionally prescribed tips that would go a long way in keeping your Opal away from any potential risks and damages:

    • The simplest to follow (yet often overlooked) care tip is to store your Opal in a separate jewelry box to keep it from getting scratched by harder gemstones.

    • Since Opal is a porous gemstone, wrapping it in dampened cotton while store works like a charm in keeping the moisture intact.

    • Whether you own 10K, 18K or 14K Gold Opal Earrings, never count on abrasive ultrasonic cleaners to clean them since they can be quite harsh on your jewelry.

    • It isn’t recommended to subject Opals to sudden temperature changes since they can cause your gemstone to craze or fracture.

    • Opals might love water but chemicals certainly are not their friend. So, it is best to keep them miles away from chlorine, bleach, hydrofluoric acids, alcohol, caustic alkaline solutions, and even oils and glycerin. Also, make it a point to wear your makeup, hairsprays, and other chemical products before you slip on your Opal earrings.

  4. How can you tell if Opal Earrings are real?

    Telling Genuine Opal Earrings apart from their fake counterparts requires you to follows these tried and trusted ways:

    • Synthetic Opals are often made up of glass. So, it is natural for some gas to get trapped inside them, leading to the formation of air bubbles over their surface. By detecting them with a jeweler’s loupe, you’ll be good to tell whether it is a real or fake one.

    • The primary USP of Natural Opal Earrings is their rainbow-like play of colors. Simply subject your stone to white light and observe how it reacts. If you don’t witness any play of color coming directly from its surface (which is the case with synthetic opals since they showcase color from below the surface), then beware- it is most likely an imitation.

    • Don’t forget to verify the gemstone’s origin before purchasing. Real Opals are generally mined in Australia, Mexico, Western Us, and Honduras. Opals coming from any other country might need a thorough authenticity check.

  5. What zodiac signs are opal?

    Opal, being the birthstone of October, is astrologically recommended to be worn by those native to the Zodiac sign- Libra.

  6. Why did opal turn yellow?

    Be it an every day pair of classic studs or Vintage Opal Earrings that you’ve saved for special occasions, it is quite natural for them to turn yellow when exposed to or submerged in water. That’s because Ethiopian Opals are hydrophane, i.e., they possess the ability to absorb water, which can often lead to a change of appearance, causing them to appear yellow or brownish.

  7. How do you activate an opal stone?

    The following measures are most trusted to Activate the power of these October Birthstone Earrings:

    • Cleansing: Before activating any crystal or stone, it is recommended to cleanse it to remove any negative or stagnant energies that it may have absorbed. To do so, you can make use of warm, soapy water. Make sure to be extra gentle while cleaning Opals.

    • Charging with moonlight: Opal is considered an extremely spiritual gemstone. So, exposing it to the light of full moon through a windowsill can go a long way in enhancing its energy.

    • Meditation: Opals are believed to awaken the psychic abilities of the wearer. So, meditating with it can also help charge this gemstone. Sit in a quiet and calm space and hold the opal in your hand. Close your eyes, relax, and focus all attention on the opal. Allow yourself to connect with its energy and visualize its properties amplifying within you.
