Pretiosa brings Boudicca - earrings from the Empress of Opalus Collection
Hand made of sterling silver, featuring beautiful hand bezel set marquise cut Australian opals
"For in the opal you shall see the burning fire of the carbuncle of ruby, the glorious purple of the amethyst, the green sea of the emerald and all glittering together" - Roman philosopher Pliny
These opals bring colder shades of pink, blue, green and small sparks of yellow - like little galaxies in your ears
The opals are soldered on silver sheet, hand sawn in the shape of small spearheads, stamped with a leaf pattern - they are elegant and delicate, but make a strong impact nontheless.

Please read my shop policy before purchasing
Fine silver is 99,9% pure silver
Pure silver is a very soft material
Therefore, Pretiosa uses fine silver for the smaller parts of her jewelry, like bezels and other smaller details
Sterling silver is 92,5% pure silver
This is an alloy made when (usually) copper, the remaining 7.5%, is combined with fine silver
This is a less soft and more durable material
