This is truly an outstanding pair of earrings that will make a great impression! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Raymond Boyd, out of genuine sterling silver and man made Opals. The earrings have a total of FOUR Blue Opal stones (TWO in each earring) that are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings, while mini silver beads can be seen accenting for a delightful finish.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is birthstone of October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
