I’m at a loss for suitable adjectives to describe this piece! It blows my mind 🤩
A marquise or navette shaped solid Australian opal has been set into an elegant Arts and Crafts era pendant, modelled in 9ct rose gold. The opal is a crystal or jelly opal – it is translucent in some lighting conditions and holds a rainbow of colours suspended in a clear opal body.
The opal measures 24.5mm x 12mm x 3.2mm (approximately 5 carats)
The pendant measures 30.8mm x 18.25 x 4.4mm not including the bale.
It weighs 3.1 grams
