Having never grown out of her childhood obsession with jewelry and all things that sparkle, Melinda Maria debuted her brand in 2005. Based in Los Angeles, the designer is influenced by the effortless cool that the people in the city exude. “People don’t want to look like they tried that hard to be cool. And there is a chic casualness about LA fashion and culture that I love.” The designer likes to keep her eyes open when looking for design inspiration. “Anything can be inspiring if you are open to it and aware."
- Isla Opal Hoop
Received my Isla Opal Hoop earrings and they are exactly like the pictures. Beautiful and they don’t weigh too much. Can comfortably wear them all day with no issues. Shipping was very fast, only took a week. Very happy.
Beautiful and super light and comfortable!
The second pair broke too I'm keeping them because I love them so much I have to find a jewelry store that can fix them for me
The slithers of imitation opal are really thin - much more translucent than in the photos, and the long ear posts are REALLY soft - so they bend when you’re trying to push the earring back on. I am really concerned that they’re not going to last long before they snap off and then the earrings will be useless and unrepairable.

The item looks nice, but some stones are not vibrant nor glued in very carefully. Personally think it is hugely overpriced for the quality I received.
Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate it!
