Not just ANY opal… Ethiopian Opal. From a mine dating back over 4000 years, the Ethiopian opal is FINALLY coming into its own. Thought to be unsuitable for jewelry up until a mere 2 1/2 years ago, the Ethiopian opal is proving, instead, to be the stone of choice for more than just October babies.

Its ‘play of color’ and stabilization have made it the go-to stone for designers, and the recent increase in price is a testament to its new-found popularity. Here are 3 good (affordable) examples from my new “Stratify” line on JTV. Opal with Pink Tourmaline, Opal with Chrome Diopside and Opal with Tanzanite. Click on any of the images for greater detail. Happy Shopping!
