Blue, Green Opal 22kt Gold and Silver Necklace
This Australian lightning ridge black boulder opal is stunning in these shades of blues and greens! It has an intensity of flashing fire in the cool color ranges with electric emerald green, cobalt blues flashes mixing with lavender pinks and yellows. As you move it around the opal shows off its deeper colors - always vivid, always bright and fiery.
You will see the blaze of cool colors of deep blues, purples and electric greens against warming corals, pinks and yellows.
I set this beautiful opal in a handmade bezel of 22k gold (alloyed by me) and soldered on sterling silver back plate, and mounted it sideways on 14kt gold filled chain to create this mesmerizing necklace.
I oxidized and polished the sterling silver for a deep granite shade to highlight the gold and centerpiece opal. It is a good size for layering with other necklaces, if you like.
The end of the 14kt gold filled extender chain dangles a wire wrapped Ethiopian opal.
This opal is not shy! It will show off its colors in any light from dim, dark to bright and sunny. It has the coolness of a beach or refreshing pool on a summer day; you will never tire of looking at it.
This is a natural boulder opal from Australia, not a lab created opal. Opal is a doublet, and it measures 17mm long by 10mm tall. The sterling silver backplate measures 23mm wide by 17mm tall. No chips or cracks anywhere on the opal.
Necklace measures 16 inches long to 18 inches long with the 14kt gold filled extender chain. If you prefer a solid gold chain or oxidized silver, please send me a message.
One of a kind, if you are an opal lover and this captivates you, don't let it get away. Layer with other necklaces or wear it alone. Very special!
