All pairs of earrings come with a second pair of sterling silver earring backs.

What is a Man-made simulated Opal?
The slow growth of Man-made simulated Opal results in a similar structure and material balance as natural precious opals, but with increased durability and structural stability.
Simulated opals do not contain water like natural opals do--making them less vulnerable to changes in temperature, humidity and heat. Gemologists and industry experts agree, since no simulated man-made opal contains water, none of this material can legitimately be called "synthetic." Instead, the industry advocates calling all manufactured opal materials "man-made simulated."
I love these earrings so much! The way the opals catch the lights and sparkle in person are absolutely gorgeous. Great quality.
