Pretiosa brings Faustina - earrings from the Empress of Opalus Collection


Hand made of sterling silver, featuring beautiful, hand bezel set round 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

The leaves beneath the opals are framed with slightly hammered silver wire, and the silver sheet is sawn out with the edges stamped to make a leaf pattern

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
