Ethiopian Opal & Blue Topaz Sterling Silver Necklace
Stirling silver bezel set 5mm x 7mm oval colourful Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstone, together with faceted cut 9mm x 6mm inverted pear drop Blue Topaz semi-precious gemstones.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of an hypnotic blue lake in California’s Redwood National Park. On a sunny day, this world-famous reserve’s various bodies of water assume the aspect of mesmeric mirrors, flawlessly reflecting the azure skies above.
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.
One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.
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.
