COMMENTS: Quite the statement pendant, this carved opal depicts the profile of a lady, with flowers in her hair. The impressively large single piece of opal has a milky base color with flashes of violet, blue and green. It measures 28.8 mm long by 20.7 mm wide. There is a small chip on the very edge of the stone, near her left eye, it is mostly covered by a prong. Around the opal is a victorian revival setting with bail and pin backing. Crafted of luxurious 18K yellow gold. This unusual piece is a such a special find! Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age.
