  • Opal Tourmaline Pendant, Cubic Zirconia, Ethiopian Opal, Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver

    Incredible earth-mined 8mm x 4mm marquise-shaped Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstone, complemented by wonderfully crafted 6mm x 4mm inverted pear drop-shaped green Tourmaline & several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconias. These gemstones are handset ins sterling silver in a prong setting & a cluster setting respectively!
    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Moel Morfydd, where the subdued shades of purple heather provide a gorgeous contrast to the vibrant green hills and deep blue sky.
    A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock from both asteroids and the moon.
    As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, said to brim with joyously positive emotion whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.
    An October birthstone, tourmaline was reported by one 18th-century Dutch scientist to induce sleep, whilst ancient traditions from Africa and India believe it to strengthen moral judgement.
    Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
