Oval opal pendant in 9kt gold 15 mm x 18 mm
This beautiful opal pendant set in smooth 9kt solid gold is something else. Because opals are quite fragile, it is quite rare to find one in this size ( about 15 mm x 18 mm) with such splendid colors. The colorplay on the opal is amazing- a white undertone, with mostly green and yellow shimmers, some orange, pink and blue too. Usually these colors don't come through so bright in one larger piece of opal. The oval cabochon is enveloped in a solid 9kt gold bezel setting. The eye is set solidly to the base of the setting and measures another 7mm or so. Opals are quite fragile and this one has lived a life: there is a crack visible in the front of the opal, but it doesn't go all the way through (not visible on the open backside). On the backside a chip has been repaired back into the opal (not visible when wearing). The whole pendant is in fair vintage condition. Hallmarked for 9kt gold, this will be the perfect companion to any chain and neck mess.
