Ethiopian Opals and How to Care for Them

AAA Opal Bracelet

Ethiopian Opals are one of the newest additions to the opal family, only discovered in 2008 in the Wollo Province of Ethiopia. They are sometimes referred to as Welo Opals or African Opals.  

Ethiopian Opals are usually light in colour and the high grade opals display mesmerising, at times, almost neon flashes of fire. As beautiful as these opals are, they are very temperamental and require special care and handling. 

1. Keep Your Ethiopian Opals Away from Water and Liquids. 

Ethiopian Opals are "hydrophane", which makes them thirsty for water. If the opals come in contact with water, they will absorb it like a sponge. If the opals are left in water and allowed to soak it up, they may lose their fire temporarily and turn yellow or brown.

Pearlberry Jewellery Fur Babies Zeus the Pom and Aphie the Raggie

Hello and welcome to my blog. 

First of all, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Nina and I live in Cardiff, UK, together with my other half, Aaron, and our two fur babies: Zeus the Pom and Aphie the Raggie (short for Aphrodite - yes, we thought we'd stick with the Greek gods theme)

Sizing Guide
Buying jewellery can be a daunting task. So many times I have bought rings and bracelets just to find that they were too big for me. This is why I have decided to add a simple ring size chart to make your shopping experience easier. 
Pearlberry Jewellery Silver Rings
I love that most Pearlberry rings have adjustable bands, which means they will fit most fingers. This also means that you will be able to wear them on different fingers. I personally prefer wearing them on my middle finger - it gives me a chance to show off the ring without making a statement about my marital status. I also love wearing rings on my index finger, especially statement rings or cocktail rings. 
I have prepared a ring size chart, which includes a useful sizing tool, so that you may find out your ring size in the privacy of your home. All you need is a printer and some scissors. Click here to access the sizing guide.
If you are shopping for your partner and do not want her finding out about it, borrow one of her rings (make sure the ring fits the right finger - I have made this mistake before and the recipient ended up with a thumb ring) and use our sizing chart to measure it.

I hope you found this post useful. Happy shopping! 
With love,
