COMMENTS: Circa 1980’s. This opal is just amazing! While listing the pendant, I got lost in the beauty of the stone looking at each flash of color and the fire this stone possesses! The pendant has been GIA certified recently, providing documentation this opal is natural. It is a double cabochon cut (the back is slightly domed rather than flat) and white in color. The flashes of fire include: red, orange, pink, purple, blue and green. There are different colors from every angle! The customer who sold this pendant to us says she purchased it in Australia. Although the customer is a regular of ours and we trust her, we do not have any evidence of this for the future owner. The pendant is crafted of 18k yellow gold with 25 small accent diamonds throughout the modernist freeform setting. The diamonds are Si1 Clarity, H Color. I tried to capture the colors and flashes in the stone as best I could with the camera although photographing opals is never easy. The 2 pictures where the pendant was lying in my hand were taken outside, one with the sun shining right on the stone and the other with the shade of a palm tree! The photographs have not been photoshopped. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. Cleaning and/or polishing by request at no additional cost.
