This African blue opal necklace is a one-of-a-kind beauty that can be worn with a dress or blue jeans as it will look great with both! This handmade necklace, designed with 8mm and 10mm African blue opals, 10mm black lava rondelle shaped beads and rhodium spacers, features a pewter “pinwheel flower” pendant from Israel. The photos don’t do the pendant justice as it looks fairly flat and dull in the photos but in real life the flower has a raised outline and dots that pick up the light and shine. The pendant is 37mm x 34mm (just under 1.5″ around) and I have included a photograph of it with a quarter to give you a size comparison.
The African blue opal is a gemstone that comes in many shades of blue and has interesting patterns in it from the veins of black and brown inclusions. The lava rocks are just that – lava! They are porous, very light weight and vary slightly in shape due to the pitting that naturally occurs in lava. The tiny spacer beads are excellent quality rhodium plated pewter beads made in the USA.The toggle clasp is made of fine silver plated culinary grade pewter, also made in the USA.
This African blue opal necklace is approximately 19″ long with an additional 1-3/8″ flower dangle. The necklace is strung on professional jewelry beading wire. It is very flexible, strong and drapes well. There are sterling silver crimps on each end of the necklace to attach it to the toggle clasp. The necklace also has wire guards as added insurance to protect the wire from wear and tear over the years.The necklace will be sent with a Solana Kai Designs tag, wrapped in colorful tissue and placed in a complimentary decorative gauze drawstring bag. It will arrive ready for you to wear or to give as a gift.
