Shipping to United States: Free


Black opal necklace, minimalist opal pendant made with a genuine black fire opal in 9x7mm oval cabochon cut in 14k yellow gold filled pendant setting with a matching delicate vermeil chain that comes in 18” sparkling cable or twisted rope chain with a small opal bead accent at the end.

Cabochon cut black opal offers improved visibility of the play of color, which is often limited in a faceted opal due to the dependency on the specific light angle where the fire can be seen.
The rounded top of a cabochon opal allows the light to interact with multiple angles within the stone, which allows the fire to be visible from nearly any angle.

▪️ DIMENSIONS: 9x7mm;
▪️ WEIGHT: approximately 1-1.2ct - varies with depth

🟣SHIPPING AND PROCESSING:

💯FREE USPS PRIORITY MAIL ON ALL ORDERS!💯

▪️I put as much time, effort and care into creating each made to order piece of jewelry as is necessary to bring it to the achievable perfection. Almost every item I ship is a piece of jewelry that is made only to order, so normally it usually takes 1-2 weeks to fulfill most orders without having to rush and possibly compromise the quality of craftsmanship - it doesn’t apply to all items, but as a rule of thumb, anything that is made with quality requires more time than a mass produced piece of junk that is shipped as soon as you put your order in. When it comes to handmade goods, very fast shipping is probably a warning sign rather than a testament to the best customer service…..
▪️Each item is made only to order - there are no premanufactured pieces, which I can drop in a mailbox the same day - every piece requires a lot of time, care and attention to have the best craftsmanship that I am happy with
▪️MAXIMUM processing time is set for 4 weeks for situations when I need to reorder something or when “life happens “…. It is not the average time you should expect.
▪️I do accept URGENT ORDERS for items that can be made very quickly, but you have to leave a note for me with your order specifying the DEADLINE when you need your item to arrive. You can also obtain prior confirmation
▪️Your finished jewelry will be shipped in a beautiful velvet jewelry box, with a polishing cloth and a care instructions sheet included with every order. I package everything to keep the jewelry protected from damage in transit and also ready for gift giving
▪️I don’t have solid gold inventory at home as of this moment due to the very small size of my shop’s operations, so I have to have extra time for ordering settings for ALL solid gold orders which take minimum 2 weeks to complete.
▪️I work entirely alone, so if I am not available for any reason such as health or other obligations, there’s nobody else who can replace me. Please accept my apology for any delay in responding to your messages, and I am extremely grateful for your understanding and support 🙏🏻❤️

🔴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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Materials

The main materials used in my jewelry are Ethiopian Welo opals of high quality grade (usually AAA), which are selected for each stone’s unique brilliance and coloring that correspond to the higher market value and offer an objectively better choice for a buyer compared to many other opal jewelry designers that opt for average quality opals to maintain the lower price advantage. I also use high quality moissanite which is a sustainable alternative to natural diamond and is the future of engagement and wedding jewelry. I am happy to help people discover its potential to satisfy their most intricate of desires when looking for the perfect engagement ring and leave diamonds to be the relic of the old times when cruelty was a social norm.

Natural opal Photo Disclaimer

Any natural opal is constantly changing its play of color and its entire appearance in response to the changes in its environment particularly shifts in the light angle, its intensity and brightness as well as the light source (natural light causes significant attenuation in opal’s color, while artificial light brings out the most of the hidden beauty within an opal). This is a natural property of this gemstone, and it is expected that the same opal will look completely different from the listing images if the surrounding light is different from the exact moment when the original photos were taken. Opal is a true chameleon and its we love it for this particular quality, but it can be misleading to a new opal owner. Please keep this in mind.

General Return Policy

YOU WILL ALWAYS RECEIVE HELP IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR ORDER!

All jewelry items that have a defect, is damaged or is significantly different from the listing description are eligible for a refund/exchange/repair. Please CONTACT ME WITHIN 3 DAYS AFTER DELIVERY to request help with your order, SHIP THE ITEM BACK WITHIN 7 DAYS using a free return label after your return is confirmed.
Make sure that the ID TAG IS ATTACHED to the jewelry and the item is in its ORIGINAL, UNWORN, UNALTERED, UNWASHED condition in order to receive a guaranteed refund. However, there are instances when returns are not accepted due to the subjective nature of the issue that the buyer has with the product they purchased. Please see post below ⬇️

Care Instructions

Natural opal requires extreme caution when using liquids, because it can absorb any liquid substance and it might cause permanent damage to the gemstone.
Keep your opal jewelry in a clean dark space, preferably in an air tight container when you are not wearing it.
Do not wear it to do manual work, play sports, swim, wash hands, exercise vigorously or when sweating. Take it off before showering, sleeping or doing anything strenuous.
Keep your opal jewelry away from sudden changes in temperature or from severe cold or hot weather.
Do not wash, submerge in liquid, clean using liquid jewelry or ultrasonic cleaners.
Most importantly: protect your opals from moisture at any cost, because this is the #1 contributing factor to opal jewelry damag

Ethiopian Opal Coloring

All opals I sell are exclusively Ethiopian Welo opals that are earth-mined, natural, solid and are free of invasive treatments that could significantly alter their appearance or reduce market value. I NEVER use doublets/triplets opals, artificially enhanced, lab created, or man made opals.
However, it is well known that Ethiopian opal does not occur in black variety, so it has to be understood at all times that heat application is needed to change the base tone to the dark black color while leaving the other properties and color appearance of an opal intact and not affected by heat. A heat treated gemstone is still considered NATURAL, and almost all colored gems are heat treated without any effect on their value or popularity.

My shop is a single person run business

Please keep in mind that I run the store on my own and have no other person to replace me with tasks that I am not able to handle at any point when I am working on other aspects of the business.
This creates a delay in replying to your messages, so please be understanding and patient and I will be very grateful for your kindness 🙏🏻
I would like to ask you to please contact me prior to leaving negative review, because I will be able to resolve your issue without the need for damaging my business which is struggling to keep afloat due to the limited time and resources that are at my disposal as a single shop owner.
Thank you for supporting my business and I am deeply grateful to each and every one of you ❤️🙏🏻
