Here I've placed 5 large yellow Welo Opals from Ethiopia as the glowing centerpiece in a necklace of shiny black spinel, which I chose because it looks and shimmers just like black diamonds at a fraction of the price. This necklace is one of the stars of the show in my shop this holiday season, an original design that is also classic, worthy to be worn at special occasions for much time to come. At a generous 18.5 inches this one of a kind piece should fit most necks and necklines. The opals are each over 1/2 inch from top to bottom so they really make a statement next to the black. The gemstones have gold fill beads separating them so that they can all lay flat together on the neck.
I'm working on matching earrings, which will be offered separately, not included with the necklace. Let me know if you are interested in those and I can get your input about length, etc. Please see the mannequin photos for proportions of the jewelry on a person as items tend to look larger in photos than they actually are. These opals are 15 to 18mm, the spinel are 3mm and all are natural gemstones. The metal is gold fill.
The Welo opals are natural opals that appear in a variety of colors and they are a fairly new discovery which is making a huge impact in the gem world...... you can see why by looking at these photos. There's lots of information available about them on the web. One thing I discovered when researching them is that they absorb water and this can cause them to crack or change color, so you won't want to get them wet.
Domestic purchases are shipped by priority mail which reaches you in 2-3 days. I pay the shipping and insurance on this item. Jewelry arrives in a gift box. Shipping will be combined on multiple purchases. Layaway purchases are welcomed.
