I have been disappointed so many times by opal earrings bought online so I didn't konw what to expect when I ordered this. But lo and behold, when I opened the box, out came two beautiful well-matched gems! With lovely fire too! Wow! Opal earrings don't work if they don't match! So thanks to the people from Overstock who picked this pair and packed it for me.
After reading the reviews of these earrings and seeing that others had said their stones were both fiery and well matched, I was really hoping that I had found the opal earrings that I've been wanting for a long time. But when mine arrived, they just weren't well matched enough. One stone had an amount of fire that I was reasonably satisfied with and threw off a red-tinted shine. The other stone had very little fire and what it did have was greenish. When seen from the amount of distance that people would generally see them from while you're wearing them, they basically just looked white and boring. Also, when they arrived one of the posts was a little bent. All in all, these earrings weren't terrible, but they just weren't worth the price to me. I ended up returning them. On a different note, this was the first time I had ever returned an item to Overstock for any reason other than the item having arrived broken. Shipping had been free on all my other returns because of the defective merchandise, but this time since my reason for returning was a quality issue I had to pay for the return myself. I was surprised and disappointed at how much I had to pay to return such a small item. I would tell you how much it cost, but I know Overstock always censors any reference to dollar amounts in reviews. But I wonder if I could get the information past their software if I use Roman numerals and phrase it unconventionally, so I'll try. The cost of shipping was nearly IX money units. That's more than ten percent of what I paid for the earrings (at a sale price) in the first place!
On first sight the opals had nice color. I tried to put the earrings on and one of the posts bent when I tried to put the backing onto it. The wire they use for the post must be very thin and weak because I've never had an earring do that before. I had to return them due to quality of the gold post.
Searched for these earring for a while. They actually seem to be a bit bigger than the picture. They are elegant in their simplicity and go with jeans, work and party attire.

We received our earrings right on time they said they would be here. My wife was real impressed with opal earrings, she gets coments about them when ever she wear's them. They made me look good. Will do again.

I ordered these earrings as a gift to my sister to match a ring. They were not a good match, as the opals were smaller and had less fire than I expected. Therefore, I returned them. Most other products that I have ordered from Overstock have been good bargains. I wrote this review only after a second prodding from Overstock.

The stones are absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth the money, plus they are matched very well. My only complaint is that the studs are too long. Before I give these to my wife for her birthday, I will need to take them to a jeweler to trim them. However, I would purchase these again in a heart beat!
I bought these earrings for my son's girlfriend for Christmas. They arrived in record time and were packaged beautifully and well. I was surprised at the overall quality, especially the amount of fire in the stones! They were so inexpensive yet so very beautiful. She was absolutely thrilled with them, too! ANY woman would love to have these. I just might buy myself a pair!
Just received a pair of these earrings in the mail as a present for my wife. The stones have good color, but are a tad smaller than I'd hoped. However, for the price, I can't complain. For a previous pair of opal earrings with stones twice the size I paid 4X the price.
