Is it okay to wear an opal necklace every day?
The short answer is yes, you can! If your opal necklace or opal pendant is an Australian solid opal set in precious metal such as sterling silver, gold or platinum then it is totally fine to wear it daily. Australian opal is mostly sedimentary and non porous which means that it can get wet and wont change if you sweat or use sunscreen or perfume.
Ultimately, your jewelry should add to your look and make you feel beautiful. So yes, go ahead and wear your opal pendant or necklace as many times as you want!
