One of our favourite gemstones for summer is the opal. These beautiful gems are ideal for the sunny season, as they really come to life when the light hits them.
While opals may seem simple at the start, as soon as they are out in the sunlight, they sparkle with numerous colours, catching the eye even if you’re only wearing a small stone. This makes them a great choice for summer, no matter what style of clothing you tend to wear.
Here are some great ways to wear opals to make the most of them:
Elegant stud earrings
A great way to wear opals so the stones are the main focus is to choose stud earrings that have minimal detail. Earrings that just show off opals will help draw the eye without the need for lots of detail and can be worn with simple clothing or heavy patterns.
Whether you wear your hair up or down, a pair like these stunning 9K Yellow Gold AAA Ethiopian Welo Pearl Stud Earrings will really shine and are going to perfect for both day and night.
If you want to wear several opal stones, the best way to do this is to choose a simple pattern. Repetitive patterns that use a number of opals ensure your jewellery will shine at all times but will stop any other aspect of your jewellery showing up the stones.
This Ethiopian Welo Opal Floral Pendant is a really pretty choice that isn’t too complicated. You can even combine it with other pieces of opal jewellery for extra sparkle as it is so simple.
While opals are traditionally white stones with flecks of colour throughout, there are different shades available. This means you can make more a statement with opals and wear something a bit different.
Blue is a big colour for this season, so these Australian Boulder Opal Lever Back Earrings will be perfectly on-trend. They feature a bright blue opal that features different shades of purple, blue and green throughout that will make them really stand out.
