We’re all about spending some QT with Mother Nature this summer, and it looks like our jewelry collection definitely agrees. We’ll never say no to pearls or sparkle, and so lately we’ve been coveting a gem that looks like an otherworldly combo of the two: opal. Whether you’re looking for a bright statement or just a colorful, everyday piece, these unique gemstones will definitely add a can’t-take-my-eyes-off-of-you punch to your summer wardrobe. In other words, they’re all worth the splurge.
