Ethiopian opal requires extra care - we know that opal is fragile so this should never be considered an every day wear piece. This is a piece you wear to dinner with your sweetheart, to an elegant ball with your favorite black dress, or to your 20th high school reunion to make the old popular girls jealous! As opal is susceptible to cracking and chipping, please exercise caution when wearing as this is a large stone. Also note that Ethiopian opal can absorb quite a lot of water if left in contact for some time. This can change the appearance of the opal drastically - it’s a temporary effect which will see the opal revert to its original state once the water has evaporated. My advice would be to avoid water with this piece wherever possible.
Please understand that almost everything I sell is either preloved, vintage or antique - it is highly unlikely that it will be in new condition. Everything I sell is sold as is. Gold may be scuffed, stones may show wear and be slightly loose at times, patina will often be left in tact. I will endeavor to list any defects that are significant but understand I may miss something that you consider important. Please ask any and all questions prior to purchase - I am always happy to discuss my pieces.
