Black Opal Gold-set Studs
Enigmatically dark and somehow brilliant. The mysterious darkness of a black opal banded in solid 14k gold on matching post. The simplicity of these 1/4" studs is part of the magic, revealed when light reveals a host of rich red and aqua tones, floating just below the surface.
Material: 14K Gold, Black Opal
Made in USA
