Combination Ethiopian Welo Opal smooth briolette and freshwater rich and chocolaty cocoa Pearl Solitaire pendant. Sterling Silver wire has been carefully wound to create the satin wrapped bail on this Camp Sundance tandem charm pendant. This amazing petite Welo Opal is bright and spectacular for a small briolette with both teal and fiery reds. The word opal comes in part from the Sanskrit upala, which meant "precious stone" and later became change of color precious stone. Hope, foresight, purity and prophecy have all been attributed to it. Ethiopian fire opals tend to have colors from Neon reds, oranges, green, blue, white, yellow and brown. Welo Opals even have colors that are not present in Australian opals like turquoise and indigo. The 7-8mm smooth Opal pear in this necklace has been whirl wind wrapped using 14k Gold filled wire to emphasize the sunny buttercup color of the matrix and contrast it to the rich darkness of the bittersweet chocolate of the Pearl. Circle link Sterling Silver 16 inch chain is highlighted with another chocolate Pearl and a small envelope charm. Opal is the modern October birthstone, Sun Sign Libra. I promise you, there will be fire in your Solitaire, my photography skills are poor so they do not do justice to these little treasures!
