The combination of the rich purple Amethyst with the multi-colored Opal inlays is stunning-- these gems were made for each other! The sparkle of the diamonds is the frosting on the cake.
Some of the opal inlay pieces on the market today use synthetic opal -- these inlays are natural Australian crystal opal.
