*Caring for your opals: To maintain the life of your opal necklace, please avoid contact with lotions, perfumes, hairspray or other chemicals. While Australian opals are not hydrophanes and will not absorb water or lose color, please avoid wearing your opal necklace while swimming or showering. Due to the nature of silk, your necklace may stretch over time so it is recommended that your opals be restrung every 1-3 years depending on frequency of wear. Finally, opals have a hardness similar to glass on the Mohs scale and should be treated with care.
**Please note that gemstones have naturally occurring inclusions -- minerals or fractures that are trapped inside during formation -- that can appear as dark spots or streaks within the stone. Rather than view these inclusions as defects, we embrace them as evidence of their natural origins.
