This unusual pendant on its 24 long sterling chain is handmade and features a gecko suspended from a wide bale. He has his little fingers all spread out and his tail curled up and on his back there is an section of what I believe to be lab created opal which has been crushed and reconstituted in a matrix and then inlaid with sterling silver wire in a custom bezel setting. I've handled several jewelry pieces over the years made with this opal product and they are quite lovely in that they have a very glittery opalescence to them due to the tiny crushed opal fragments within the matrix. They are not as valuable, of course, as solid opals, but they certainly make attractive accents on jewelry. The pendant measures 3 long by 1 5/8 wide. The back of the pendant has two impressed marks, the word sterling and the letter J which is most likely the makers mark. This is a nice whimsical piece of sterling work. It is in good used condition with no visible damage. Ready to wear with your jeans or a sharp suit.
