In comparison to a sapphire or ruby, an opal may come across as quite understated. But a discerning eye will notice a “galaxy”, filled with beauty and charm, which makes this gem truly unique.
For centuries, it has been treasured for displaying a vivid play-of-color that has often been compared to the rainbow, fireworks and of course, the galaxy. Even William Shakespeare called it the “Queen of Gems” in his play titled Twelfth Night. Today, opal jewelry is more popular than ever before and many of our happy customers will vouch for it.
Here’s a look at 7 of our most popular pieces and why everyone loved them!

Customer Review: “Since I was very uneasy about purchasing earrings online and without visual approval from my girlfriend, I asked about 15 female co-workers in my office which earrings they would wear if they had the chance. Out of the 10 pair that I selected for comparison purposes, majority chose this set. Needless to say, as a Christmas present, they went over wonderfully. She said they were simply “stunning” and the tears followed. She has received many compliments. Overall, I couldn’t have made a better choice.” – Jeff.
