These gorgeous studs prove that jewelry does not have to be cut and polished to perfection in order to stop you in your tracks. In fact, it is precisely the rough-hewn, wabi-sabi aesthetic that these Peruvian opal studs exude that makes them so stunning. The beautiful, milky green opals are suspended within delicate claw settings of 14 karat rose gold and attached to 14 karat yellow gold posts.
