Adjust Your Monitor for Accurate Colors + Contrast!
Opals look dramatically different in different colors of lighting, from different viewing angles. We have carefully color calibrated our cameras and computers to consistently as possible list images that look like the opal in our hands when we list it AND how it should look in your hands in sunlight or 12"-16" from a bright tungsten lightbulb. However, no two televisions or computer monitors look alike. Images on your computer monitor/graphics board/viewing software may be quite different than a calibrated system like ours. To learn more accurate information about Opals, please contact us by email for documents explaining how to view, enjoy and care for your opals.
Precious Opals are FUN.
Precious Opals are Beautiful.

We have been told.....
That it is unlucky to NOT own an Opal -
- the GemStone at the Beginning and the End of every Rainbow.
That Opal is every Woman's birthstone -
- because Opals are available in every color of the Rainbow

What Will Be Your Legacy? Your Treasures?
How You are Remembered by Family and Friends?
Your Passionate Treasures
The passing of my wife, family & friends started us thinking:
What were they 'passionate' about?
What did they Treasure?
Did they have a hobby or special interest?
What would they have wanted to be remembered for?
What do I wish they had left me as a special memory, memento or keepsake of their Life's Legacy?
And this led us to considering our own lives, our treasures and leaving specific items to friends & family as mementos of our Legacy, our Treasures! -
Please consider Your 'Legacy,' Your 'Treasures' & what you would leave to your friends, co-workers, neighbors, family & people who have touched your life.
Buying something you can enjoy now AND pass along to a family member, friend, neighbor or co-worker as a memento of you will have a lasting impact on their lives, too.
You should decide NOW what you would like to leave to others - because you can't take it with you!
But you can decide who will appreciate and honor your 'Legacy,' and your special 'Treasures' if you write down who should receive it.
HEAVEN is a FREE GIFT
One day, we all will die. And there is ONLY ONE TREASURE WE CAN TAKE WITH US - the knowledge of where we will spend eternity.
Do You See a Welcome Future? Or fear death? - A Sunrise or Sunset?

Changing your mind is not a reason for a return. Failure to read the description, especially about the size-dimensions-weight, opal base tone or coloration is not a reason for a return. All product information is clearly listed for every item including color, dimensions (1 inch = 25.4 mm) and weight/carat weight. We pay Listing fees, eBay FinalValueFees, PayPal Fees, etc. and try to keep our value high and prices low - a fraction of typical retail.

The Golden Rule
We believe in the "Golden Rule" and the 10 Commandments as taught when we attended school - "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Jesus is the Reason for Every Season
May God Bless America
We attend First Baptist of Atlanta (www.fba.org) and support Dr. Charles Stanley, whose inspirational daily messages are heard around the world in 100+ languages (www.intouch.org).
Our Commitment to You
No item we sell will knowingly be misrepresented. We strive to accurately describe each item's features, size, weight, condition, country of origin and other information.
We do not adjust contrast, color saturation (intensity), exposure, etc. to unrealistically make a collectible, opal, color change gemstone, a pastel or lower quality item appear substantially different on the internet compared to holding it in your hands under the same intensity and color balance of lighting.
We try to accurately photograph each item using tungsten (bright room light equivalent) or daylight-balanced lighting (like direct sunlight). Some items (especially Opals and some gemstones) look different in different "colors" of light - tungsten, fluorescent, halogen, noon-day sun, natural shade, morning or evening sunlight, cloudy/overcast. Our photos may be 1:1 (life size), smaller for large items or magnified larger than life size to show detail and quality. Magnified images may show minor natural flaws not visible to the unaided eye.
Solid Gold Content, Treatments
Sizes may be listed in inches and U.S. ounces or in millimeters (25.4 mm = 1 inch) and grams or carats.
10K, 14K, 18K Gold is for Solid Gold Content - not plated/Vermeil/etc.
All Opals & Gemstones MyLegacy-Treasures Sells are Real, Natural Creations of God. LifeStyles-Collections sells 'fun' jewelry at lower prices with genuine gemstones or clearly identified manmade gemstones. Some Religious Jewelry is offered with clearly identified manmade gemstones to help keep the selling price low.
