Black Opal Necklace with Genuine Ethiopian Opal in 9x7mm cut with green and blue play of color. The necklace comes with a delicate silver 18” chain in solid 925 sterling silver with yellow, rose or white gold finish. (Choose yours in the menu)

Versatile jewelry piece for all ages and styles - perfect gift for anyone and comes gift wrapped and ready to be given as a gift 🎁

The necklace has a classic simple design and is made with a 4 prong oval setting and a delicate chain In matching metal or metal finish. The sterling silver used in all of my jewelry is plated with rhodium or white gold over to improve durability, tarnish resistance and the look of the plain silver surface, and it is a significant upgrade in quality of all sterling silver jewelry as well as the new standard of silver jewelry manufacturing which allows customers to enjoy greatly improved experience of wearing the silver pieces that don’t have to be cleaned on regular basis and turn color into yellow unappealing shade from oxidation. The rhodium silver doesn’t have those annoying faults that make it an unpopular choice of metal for long lasting pieces, because you can easily maintain the new shiny look of the metal with relatively no effort.

I use only the top quality grade natural black fire opal gemstones that are selected from all of my purchased gemstones to be sold at this shop for their unique bright coloring and best fire. The stones are sourced from verified professional sources that are known for ethical practices and the high quality standard when it comes to their gemstone production. Only top notch flawless opals are offered via this shop.

This necklace is available in solid 14k yellow gold, but other colors of solid gold are coming soon as permanent variations.

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.

Quality Assurance and Verification

My shop has been consistently offering high quality handcrafted jewelry that are made with excellent craftsmanship, unique original designs and with ethically and sustainably sourced gemstones.

All verification, testing and quality grading is done by me using my knowledge of jewelry industry and gemology.

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.
