Ethiopian Opal Sterling Silver Necklace with Yellow Gold Accents
An entrancing necklace featuring wonderfully colourful 5mm x 5mm and 4mm x 4mm rounds of natural cabochon-cut Ethiopian opal, elegantly hand-set in stylish sterling silver, ornately designed and sumptuously accented with yellow gold.
Like 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.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the breathtaking Val d’Orcia, a valley of unparalleled beauty in the paradisal Italian region of Tuscany. This idyllic swathe of countryside is truly unforgettable, its undulating hills of gold bearing incomparable natural beauty.
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.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
