The opal has a variety of shades and flashes of color mixed in into one unique tapestry designed by Mother Nature.
✅ THE GEMSTONE:
🔹 origin: Opal is natural, earth mined and unaltered; mined in Ethiopia Welo region; 100% untreated and is made by nature!
🔹Size: 8x6mm, 9x7mm, 10x8mm
🔹 Weight: 0.7-1.1; 1.2–1.5;1.6-1.9 ct for each size respectively;
🔹 Cut: oval faceted;
🔹Quality grade: AAA-AAA+
🔹Brightness: 4 to 5;
🔹 Base tone: green or amber colored with the bright flashes of fire across the surface;
🔹 The opal is very well cut and has no imperfections or inclusions.
🔹The colors change from strong green shade into a glowing orange or red without having a boring play of color that is expected but offering a different color mix every time you turn the stone towards the light source.
✅ THE SETTING:
🔹Semi mount 4 prong solid sterling silver pendant setting with sterling silver chain;
🔹The pendant setting is plated with rhodium and the chain is plated with white gold;
🔹 The setting can have a bail attached or have no bail and be used with a connector according to a certain design idea;
🔹It is a classic piece that is so versatile and so well made with craftsmanship and attention to every detail that it will fit anyone’s style or taste.
🔹This necklace is going to be a perfect gift for nearly any occasion and will be loved by any recipient, so you can count on choosing the right item to gift to someone who you might not know too well.
🔹And alternatively, it is an ideal choice of an anniversary gift for someone you love and share the life with. Make their day by bringing color into their life, bright glowing shades of fire colors that will be changing all the time and never repeat the pattern of color you have already seen before.
🔹This necklace will also look great no matter what you choose: the smaller 8x6mm opal size which is more delicate and dainty or the classic 9x7mm oval gemstone to create your necklace with - it will show plenty of color and will not be overwhelmingly large and overpowering. 10x8mm size is quite large, so it will suit best to please someone who loves statement jewelry.

🔹The necklace can be made in 14k solid gold as a custom order, so please contact me for pricing and the timeframe required to finish your own unique black opal necklace.
🔹 Select your preferences for a finish in the drop down menu: you can have the necklace made in just sterling silver, in 14K rose or yellow gold filled over silver finish and the recent addition is the rhodium/white gold plated pendant setting and chain combination, which will look like silver but will be protected from tarnish and micro damage

Unfortunately due to the fact that each item is made to order I cannot accept returns caused by subjective reasons (buyer's remorse) such as changing one's mind, finding a better price elsewhere, returning an unwanted gift (someone buys more than one gift, so the recipient can choose their favorite and later return the rest)etc.,

I set the MAXIMUM processing time of 3-4 weeks but the exact time required to fulfill an order varies greatly depending on a combination of multiple factors both objective and personal.
▪️Processing time is different from the delivery time, which is specified for every shipping method.

-Every order is fulfilled within the 4 weeks of processing time, but majority of orders are shipped within one week. I also ship NEXT DAY ORDERS - I am very flexible when it comes to processing time.
- Etsy estimates delivery date incorrectly in their tracking info email notification which they send to all customers. I make no commitment to fulfill those unrealistic expectations;
-USPS are plagued with problems this year, so delays are virtually guaranteed, and I am asking you to be understanding that it is rarely me, who is holding up your order.
I DO NOT REPLY EVERY 24 HOURS!
This information is not provided by me or given with my permission. I work only part time.
There are certain limitations that prevent me from working every day as I would like to. I have been suffering from chronic fatigue, which “steals” a lot of my time by making me unable to function and slows me down at every turn, so I am unable to respond to you right away. Whenever I get totally burnt out, I have to take a day off or two to recover and rest. I am the only person who runs every single aspect of this business w/o prior experience, so I am constantly trying to finish prior tasks and I am afraid that this might be mistaken for sign of horrible customer service...
Opal jewelry is EXTREMELY FRAGILE and cannot come in touch with any liquid including water.
Please make sure you DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR OPAL JEWELRY TO WATER!
- Do not wash hands, take shower, do strenuous activity, run errands, clean the house or exercise with opals still on.
- Take off before bed and clean and buff the metal parts regularly to avoid using chemical cleaners.
- Micro paved Jewelry cannot be placed into an ultrasonic Jewelry cleaner due to the shaking, which might cause the tiny stones to fall out.
-Jewelry damaged due to not following the care instructions IS A FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER AND CANNOT BE RETURNED, EXCHANGED OR REIMBURSED.
-“care tips” card is provided with your order.
▪️Each “made to order” piece of jewelry is made especially for you using materials that cannot be reclaimed or sold right away.
▪️Made to order item should never be treated as other purchases and at the very least the value of time and effort that went into creating a M.T.O piece should always be compensated in a case of a return;
▪️I put a lot of effort into making sure my customers are familiar with care instructions and know what to except from their purchase.
That’s why items that are not meeting expectations or damaged due to not reading care tips are strictly non refundable.
▪️35% mandatory fee is withheld from any amount of refund issued for returning any item that is M.T.O.
- 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 cannot be captured on a still image. A natural fire opal can look green on one photograph and red on the other with every subtle change in light angle or its intensity.
- 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 high quality precious metals and natural gemstones in creating my jewelry. The quality standard for this shop is set to be especially high.
I use my best quality stones for creating items offered at this shop, so each and every item is not only made to order but is typically made with perfect or nearly perfect gemstones, with excellent time consuming level of craftsmanship seen in each unique design.
▪️I do not use stock photos for a reason: I design everything myself, and take my own photos of the items upon completion of the item so you can be sure that the jewelry sold through this store is going to look exactly as pictured with the exception of gemstones, which are all unique and will never look the same.

It’s a beautiful piece. It looks smaller than I expected for the size, so order a big one. :)

The pendant and necklace are beautiful and very well made. Julie patiently answered any questions I had about black opals (first time buyer here) and has a wealth of info listed before purchase-highly recommend reading. I will keep her shop as a "favorite" and be a repeat customer. Highly Recommend!
