She basks in sunlight and in the eyes of others, sharing all of who she is without fear of reprimand. The way she moans with pleasure. The sound of her breath when you ask her a complicated question. The brightness her giggles bring, the laughter bursting from her eyes.
Captured lightning is encased in these Australian opal necklaces from Lightning Ridge. The necklaces are held snuggly in a bezel setting and a dainty silver chain.
The opals are ethically sourced from Australia, where they were mined and cut. These are solid opals, not doublets or triplets. Each opal is set in recycled sterling silver, and then attached to a dainty sterling silver chain and clasp.
See which opal necklace you'll get in the photos. Each necklace can be shortened by 3-4 cm (around 1.5").
Makes for a fun gift for a friend born in October, since opal is a birthstone for October.
Opal is the October birthstone. Flashes of color dancing in a glimmering stone, there’s not much that needs to be said about its beauty. This birthstone is as versatile as it is colorful – use it for playfulness and strength, tenderness and truth, to amplify your karma and keep your cool all at once.
Opal absorbs and reflects light as it dances, and likewise, it picks up thoughts and feelings, desires, and buried emotions, amplifying them and returning them to the source. Opal helps you to let go of patterns of fear, anger, negativity and self-harm. If you need to let go of the one who doesn’t deserve you, have faith in Opal and this too shall pass.
Recycled sterling silver
We use recycled silver from Umicore. This company is listed as a Conflict Free Smelter by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMA), Chain-of-Custody certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) and complies with the LBMA Responsible Ag Guidance. We opt for recycled silver as an interim solution while we look into setting up a traceable supply chain for artisanal, pollution free silver.
Besides the unconventional earring shapes out there, I decided to buy the mismatched bundle for my mom and my sis. To my expectation, they really like them! My mom who is in her fifties even likes the fact wearing the mismatch earrings.
Super happy! Thank you Gardens of the Sun team <3
