Opals are difficult – I think before you spend a lot of money on one, you’re going to want to do your homework! That said, I’m the last person to throw rocks at you if you choose to wear a fake… life’s too short for me to judge anybody on the basis of their stones…
Yes, this dress is FINALLY available at Lands’ End. It was there, then it was gone, and I was very confused… And the only opals here are these amazing earrings – I so wanted you to see them…
It’s worth remembering that opals come in all sorts of colors…
And the bracelet brand – Lionette NY – has a few other pieces of opal jewelry. Click through to the site and then click on their brand to see their full assortment.
You don’t need to wear a million pieces of jewelry, if the ones that you DO wear are lovely. (and if you handbag is completely amazing…)
These earrings would be really flattering – that luminous blush color near your face would look good on anyone.
There are opals that come in this color, but these are frankly fake. But if you like them (and if you have matching shoes!) you needn’t apologize to anyone.
If I owned this necklace, I’d re-do my entire wardrobe to show it off – although I wouldn’t really have any money left! But it might be worth it…
When people ask you if you’re not afraid to wear opals because they’re “bad luck,” just look at them as if they’re the kind of person who believes that inanimate objects have power over you… Sort of like the way I look at people who ask why I don’t wear high-heels…
