A delicate, Ethiopian opal necklace with faceted rondelles. At 16.5” in length, it’s a perfect length to wear on its own or to build a necklace stack. Wear it with other beaded necklaces from my shop, or chains in your jewelry box. Mix and match, and have fun! Hand knotted on lilac silk, for a beautiful drape and luxe feel, this necklace is finished with a solid 14kt gold lobster claw clasp.
The opals are a graduated size from 4-6mm, have a white base, with a beautiful color play of blue and violet.
Ethiopian opal care:
Care: Ethiopian opal is hydrophane (from the Greek meaning “water loving”) and absorbs liquids. Because of this, the stone can absorb liquids that will damage its color properties; any water it absorbs should dry in a day or two without damaging the stone. Be aware that oils, soaps and chemicals (including perfumes), if absorbed, may stain the stone, changing its color or damaging its signature play of light. Clean the stone with a soft cloth. Never clean using soap, chemicals, oil, steam or ultrasonics.
Your necklace will ship USPS mail with tracking and will be packaged in a lovely gift box.
