One-of-a-kind Silver Galapagos Stud Earrings, 'kissed' with 24k gold, Opal Marble Rock
Opal is such a wondrous, fine stone that it is seldom found in silver jewelry. So when Gurhan found these fascinating opals in hues of powdery blue, gray and white, he was immediately drawn to the opportunity to work with them in silver. Although they lack the fire and play of more expensive opals, they have their own beauty and look great with jeans and dressed up casual.

24k gold is such an important part of our DNA, that most of the GURHAN Silver styles are ‘kissed’ with 24k gold. What do we mean by “kissed”?! Simply, it means that they may be either vermeil plated or bonded with 24k gold. Vermeil plating refers to the common process of chemically adhering gold to silver. Bonding entails fusing an actual sheet of gold to the silver. While bonding creates a much thicker application of gold than vermeil, our vermeil plating process applies a substantial layer of gold, befitting a precious jewelry line, and in keeping with FTC guidelines (2.5 microns).
