Exquisite, smooth polished Ethiopian opals are hand knotted on lilac silk cord to create this ethereal necklace. The opals are a substantial size of 6mm and were exclusively made to my specifications. Each of the opals feature a wonderful color play, exhibiting orange, pink, purple and blue on a creamy white base.
Finished with a one of a kind, artisan clasp made in Indonesia, which is set in solid sterling silver.
Approximately 16" in length and perfect for a single, luxe piece, or the base for layering with other chains in your jewelry box or pieces in my shop.
Ethiopian opal 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.
