Gem trends: opal jewelry

Move over diamonds, opal jewelry is quickly becoming our new best friend this season. Although the stone has generally been considered a little outdated, major fashion jewelry designers have recently adopted the opal, transforming it into something new and fresh with modern settings and styles. With the season’s color trends–radiant orchid, cobalt, mint–the opal is especially striking. If you have Grandma’s antique opal jewelry, pull it out now. If you’re looking for something new, the styles featured below are some of my favorites thanks to their bold mountings and non-traditional cuts.
