Rare and beautiful, faceted Peruvian Opal (14mm x 10mm) set in a 14k gold bezel with a 2.5mm rose cut black diamond (also bezel set). The 14k gold balls surrounding the setting range from 2mm to 1.5mm. The 14k gold bezel holding the opal is 4mm wide and there is an additional 14k gold wire border around the bezel. The backplate (behind the opal) is sterling silver. This gorgeous stone has an amazing depth to it. Underneath the surface there are black dendritic formations that make it seem you are staring into a miniature ocean world.
Peruvian Opal is a rare stone that is only found in the Andes mountains near San Patricio. The colors are reminiscent of a Caribbean ocean and commonly has dendrites that add to its "picture" quality. It is the national stone of Peru. It is about 5.5 to 6.5 on the Moh's scale of hardness which is about the same hardness as glass so some care must be taken not to scratch the stone. This pendant is available with a 14k gold snake chain in a variety of lengths or simply without a chain, the pendant alone to wear with your own chain. Other styles of 14k chains are available (as well as sterling silver chains), convo me for prices, styles or lengths.
This pendant will arrive in a beautiful gift box with a polishing cloth. Like all my jewelry, it comes with a lifetime warranty. If it ever needs a repair, just send it to me and I will repair it and send it back to you at no charge.
Free domestic shipping and free gift wrapping is available, just convo me if you would like it wrapped.
