Foil Opals: A simulated gemstone that was actually a piece of glass over a thin sheet of sparkly metal, in order to mimic the look of natural opal. These were introduced in the late Victorian era, and are different from other synthetic opals that were made from plastic or sparkly glass. However, the term “foil opal” is now commonly used to refer to all faux opals. These stones are also popularly used in vintage costume jewelry, especially from Mexican manufacturers.

The pieces we sell are vintage, so they may present marks of the passage of time. Make sure you have a close look at the photos of each product. We try to capture them as accurately as possible. Colors may differ slightly. 

Sold as-is, check photos carefully. Some items will display wear consistent with age and use. Gemstones have not been graded for color and clarity and tested for clarity and colour enhancement unless stated otherwise.

As with any vintage items, pieces may have some signs of wear such as surface scratches, small chips, dings, or may have a patina that can easily be removed. Any medium to major damage such as cracked stones or dents will be noted in the description if known.

It is the buyers' responsibility to view each image and preview the item to determine the condition.
