*Our jewelry can get wet because it is high quality .925 sterling silver and high quality gold plating. But, we do not recommend it! Our jewelry will never turn your skin green. Although, over long periods of time precious metals oxidize through water exposure because of minerals in water. To preserve the quality over long period of time we suggest minimizing getting jewelry wet. :)*
About Pink Opal:

Gemini and Aquarius
Pink opal has played a role in numerous societies around the world since ancient times, notably in ancient Egypt.
According to National Geographic, pharaohs in ancient Egypt would take on huge construction projects, building large temples, monuments, and tombs. This undertaking was based on the belief that pharaohs would become gods after death and needed to prepare a place for themselves in the afterlife.
Over in the west, indigenous tribes in the Americas held pink opal with sacred reverence. Cherokee tribes of North America honored pink opal as one of their seven sacred gemstones. Inca tribes in South America used pink opal to communicate with deities or spirits, particularly the Mother Goddess, Pachamama.
One nickname for pink opal, “The Stone of Spiritual Awakening,” is rooted in its purported connection to the divine. According to Greek mythology, opals formed from the joyful tears Zeus wept after defeating the Titans, and other cultures saw opals as blessings dropped from heaven.
