One Half Studs / Matrix Opal
True to our design ethos, these versatile earrings honor nature’s creations. At center stage is vivid matrix opal containing glimmering flecks of color that catch the eye. Dainty, yet bold, the Half Studs were designed with versatility in mind; wear as set, a solo stud, or mix and match with your favorite gemstones.
Each gemstone is unique in nature and will vary from the stone pictured.

Inlay gemstones are cut locally in NY and set in 100% recycled 14k gold or silver that is certified as a responsible source by SCS Global Services.
Matrix opals are opals that are formed within pores, holes, or cracks in a host rock. This natural process creates stones that each hold different colors, patterns, and variations. We love them for their vibrance and unique characteristics—the perfect stone for creating a piece that can’t be replicated! Our matrix opals are mined by a small family-run business in Australia.
Opals are delicate by nature and require a little more care to ensure their longevity. We recommend removing opal jewelry during prolonged exposure to water or during high-intensity activities that could scratch the stone.
We purchase ear posts and ear nuts from a small business located in New York City’s diamond district. While much of the metal in their products is indeed recycled, they are unable to certify their materials as 100% recycled due to the prohibitively expensive certification process. While this is one link in our supply chain that needs improvement, we are also proud to support small local businesses and believe that our support will only help them achieve sustainable milestones as they grow.
