💎 UNIQUE AND RARE NATURAL FIRE OPAL WITH NEON SURREAL GLOWING PLAY OF COLOR!
▪️GEMSTONE ORIGIN: 100% natural, earth-mined, solid, untreated free of any artificial enhancement, toxic chemicals or other human intervention*
*Perfectly preserved in its natural state and cut by human hands in a sustainable process of gemstone’s production that is transparent from the moment it is extracted to the point of it being shipped to me, so I can create a piece of jewelry with it. My suppliers are reliable local small family owned businesses that are not involved in any unethical, exploitative and destructive practices that are often associated with large scale gemstone mining operations;
▪️QUALITY GRADE: AAAA - rare
*AAA (standard quality grade for opals I sell via this store)- high quality opal with fire/play of color visible under natural light and under artificial light; AAA+/AAAA - exceptionally beautiful bright opal with rarely occurring features (such as red colored fire) and coloring;
▪️ DIMENSIONS: 14x11mm
▪️ WEIGHT: approximately 5 Ct
▪️SHAPE AND CUT: oval cabochon
▪️PATTERN: rolling flash
*Smaller opals do not have identifiable fire pattern which emerges only in larger stones, and this opal offers such an incredible amount of fiery colors that are easily visible under any lighting conditions
▪️PREDOMINANT COLORS: light orange, green, yellow
* The opal pictured is the ACTUAL STONE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO RECEIVE;
▪️BASE TONE: white or bluish semi translucent, not clear or see through
* More opaque base tone which is slightly darker is considered more valuable in a natural opal.
▪️PLAY OF COLOR: purple, orange, white, yellow - this is the combination of colors I see in the most unique opals with the highest intensity of their fire colors
The orange and green glow look so surreal that they seem to be not out of this world under certain light angles.
No photos can properly convey this opal’s whimsical and transcendental beauty that you can appreciate seeing it in real life!
🌟You will not go unnoticed wearing this necklace: - nature has already created a perfect fashion statement for you to express your esthetics and your unique style! I simply made this wearable so you can have a piece of natural beauty always with you!
▪️STYLE: traditional 4 prong 14k gold filled pendant setting with a moving small bail that fits an oval cabochon cut gemstone
▪️ METAL FINISH: 14k rose, yellow or white gold filled over solid 925 sterling silver - select your preferred color in the menu option.
▪️SOLID GOLD: 14k solid rose, yellow or white gold pendant necklace made with excellent quality of craftsmanship with a lovely filigree bail and a matching thick 1.5mm diamond cut twisted rope chain in the corresponding gold color in 16” or 18” length according to your preference from the menu options.
▪️CHAIN: matching chain is provided with the pendant in the same metal finish and color.
For all solid 14k gold necklaces the chain is quite thick to match the look of the pendant that is a larger size gemstone, so together the pendant necklace is going to look like a one cohesive piece that is created with care and attention to the style.
I highly recommend getting matching pair of earrings with the same color of the opal as the ring - it is very difficult to find matching natural opals, so I can create a custom matching set for you that will look absolutely incredible 💯😍

🟣OPAL PHOTO DISCLAIMER:
🔴OPALS CHANGE THEIR APPEARANCE AND IT IS VERY HARD TO CAPTURE THEIR TRUE BEAUTY VIA PHOTOS OR VIDEOS!
▪️Each Opal is very unique and special. Just like you are. That’s why we love them.
But this gemstone has certain features that make it very hard or impossible to objectively represent them via photos and videos with a degree of absolute precision. Please keep this in mind when you are looking through the available items and the listing images. The item you will receive is going to LOOK DIFFERENT from the listing photos and videos, but THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NORMAL and is to be expected from any natural opal due to its very nature and physical properties;
▪️Being the true chameleons, natural opals change their visible colors depending on the slightest changes in the lighting environment, camera angle, movement and everything else around them.
Even if the two opals have extremely similar features, they still will offer their own unique way of interacting with the light, which is what defines this gemstone and gives it its "personality". And just like people, opal’s personalities are very unique and are ALWAYS CHANGING depending upon their surroundings;
▪️The play of color in any natural opal results from a process of constant interaction between the light and the opal’s complex inner structure producing that unique combination of colors that we know as visible “fire”. It is not only unique to each individual opal, but is produced following the movement and the changes in the surrounding light - without the light you cannot see opal’s fire at all, because light is what creates the play of color. That’s why every opal’s appearance depends upon its continuous interaction with the light which produces different color combinations, determines the brightness, fire intensity etc., Even the very same opal is going to look different from its own photos depending on the lighting environment that exists around it at each specific moment;
▪️Even making a video does not provide a solution to this problem, because of the exposure related artifacts that typically dampen opal’s natural vibrancy of its colors, so an opal may appear of colorless and dull due to overexposure and nothing can be more different from real life since it affects the most beautiful glowing opals of the highest quality….
🟣PHOTO AND VIDEO GALLERY:
▪️A collection of video clips and photos of different opal jewelry: items that I have made or sold previously, new or current pieces that are not yet listed, design suggestions, ideas and examples for custom orders - get to know what the jewelry I make looks like and get inspired to create your own custom piece!
🟣MY WORK AND PURPOSE:
▪️Each item I create is always made with care, attention and love. I try to approach my work with a positive mindset of gratitude for this unique opportunity to bring something joyful and beautiful into other people's lives: it is exhilarating to know, that something I made would mean so much for another person who would wear that piece of jewelry as a symbol of a life changing event or as precious memory that they will carry with them through years!

- YOUR JEWELRY WILL AND SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT FROM THE LISTING PHOTOS EVEN IF THE PHOTOS ARE TAKEN OF THE ACTUAL OPAL
- The truth about this gemstone is that its uniqueness, its ever changing play of color, its brilliance, color intensity or fire pattern can be fully appreciated only when seen in real life. Besides any slight change in the light angle causes complete change in the opal’s appearance and visible colors
- There is a SIGNIFICANT amount of attenuation present when you look at an opal under natural daylight compared to its artificially exaggerated brilliance seen under the artificial indoor light;
- it is NORMAL for opals to change their appearance, so please keep this in mind that even the same opal NEVER LOOKS THE SAME!
I use only precious metals: 10k, 14k solid gold and 925 sterling silver. My favorite gemstone has always been Ethiopian Welo Opal, but now I also use moissanite to create my jewelry. Both fiery gemstones are very different but are satisfying to work with as they are capable of creating a flawless piece of beauty and perfection to be the result of my creative effort. I do not settle for mediocre or ordinary: my jewelry is made with RARE and UNIQUE gemstones. I personally test precious metals and gemstones for authenticity, and guarantee that all materials used in my jewelry are safe, hypoallergenic, authentic and are original designs - never something that was mass produced or made to resell. My jewelry is original and offers true value.
I have recently introduced an initiative that allows everyone to have a custom made version of any item listed in my shop by changing the center gemstone into ANY GEMSTONE THAT THEY WANT. You can choose from a wide selection of birthstones and choose from any setting in my shop to create your perfect gift and mix and match pieces for making gifts for friends or family members or anyone - the idea is that the jewelry can be purchased for an AFFORDABLE PRICE and be created for you within the same processing time as the item in the listing. All of the gemstones I get are SUSTAINABLY SOURCED and are produced by small businesses that are usually local and family owned, so the process is very transparent and straightforward. Give it a try!
Now I am offering more moissanite jewelry than ever before due to the changes in the industry allowing me to purchase moissanite products that are CERTIFIED and come with a LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY. The quality of the moissanite gemstones is INCREDIBLE, and the colors are absolutely stunning, so I have been working on my solid gold Bridal and Engagement Jewelry Collection featuring new and unique designs created with moissanite and natural opal in the same elegant style that I have always been offering to my customers: I adore dainty jewelry and I design with an open heart for everyone in mind, so my pieces are perfectly versatile and fit nearly any occasion. My craftsmanship and the gemstone quality is known for its highest standards.
