Classic black fire opal necklace made with a 925 sterling silver or 14k vermeil finish settling and matching chain which has an extension chain with an opal bead accent with the top quality grade natural opal gemstone in AAA and AAAA quality grade ( if available) featuring predominantly red and green glowing flashes of bright fire visible against the dark background with dramatic contrast.

The opal is also offered in AA quality grade which is not supposed to be sold in this shop, but I am trying to get rid of many darker stones for a very cheap price. Some people might actually prefer dark gemstones without flashing fire or loud intense colors, so it is offered as an alternative option to the original item and differs from the better quality black opals by a lot.

The opal is offered in oval faceted 8x6mm, 9x7mm size gemstone set in a traditional pendant setting with a delicate chain in matching vermeil color in rose and yellow 14K gold and the traditional 925 sterling silver Setting with or without rhodium plated finish.

The opals in this category are stunning and mostly noticeable for the primary red fire color which is the predominant color.

The fire is visible under specific angle of viewing with the same stone looking entirely black if seen from a different angle or with the change in the light intensity when the more light is directed at the opal the brighter the fire colors are. is absolutely stunning and is quite rare due to the abundance of red fire in its play of color. Most opals have mild coloring with only a hint of red and mostly green and blue colors, which is not true for this gemstone. This opal is throwing flashes of intense red color as it interacts with the light.
No matter what size of the stone or what finish you choose this necklace will not leave you disappointed.
The cut is excellent and there are no inclusions or defects visible in this opal.
A gemstone like this will look best in a solid 14k gold setting to preserve its beauty for many years, so you can place a custom order for your necklace to be made in solid gold. Please contact me for the timeframe and pricing.

Currently available in 925 sterling silver or 14K yellow gold filled finish.

This necklace will make a great gift for someone who appreciates the beauty of black opals already - they will be delighted to have such a colorful gemstone in their jewelry collection!

Your order will arrive beautifully packaged with a a complimentary polishing cloth and care instructions sheet.

🟪MATERIALS AND QUALITY STANDARD:

▪️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 every detail.

▪️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 unique and never look the same.
I did my fair share of online shopping to understand how rare it is to find a real quality jewelry - if you think that a cheaper price will bring you the same or almost the same item, you are making a mistake especially when it comes to certain countries and many Etsy sellers who drop ship mass produced goods and pass them for “handcrafted” items. I put as much time into creating each “made to order” piece as is necessary to bring it to achievable perfection. But unfortunately, this approach often creates a conflicting imbalance between my own personal life and schedule and the ability to ship orders as fast as many buyers are expecting. Whenever I do try to ship every order as soon as possible I get energy burnout, which simply doesn’t allow me to do anything at all for a few days up to a few weeks. For this reason I will have to limit personalized assistance to potential buyers in favor of providing an updated clear and detailed information about the available items, which can be easily understood and illustrated by anyone.
________________________________________
🟪PAYMENT PLANS ARE WELCOME:

▪️I accept very flexible payment plans with minimum $100 per month payments. Payments are accepted ONLY to my PayPal account to avoid making unnecessary listings for each installment. It is very secure and is subject to the same money back guarantee as well as purchase protection provided by PayPal as you get through Etsy so direct payments are no longer considered dangerous

🟪UNDERSTANDING NATURAL OPAL:

▪️ Opal is very unique and colorful gemstone like no other. EVERY OPAL IS CHANGING COLORS CONTINUOUSLY IN RESPONSE TO THE LIGHT ANGLE OR INTENSITY.
This makes photographing them extremely difficult, so YOU MUST READ THIS to learn some typical properties of this gem and KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR OPAL JEWELRY AND HOW TO BEST CARE FOR IT.

🟪NATURAL OPAL PHOTOGRAPHY ISSUES - A MUST READ ARTICLE FOR ALL:

▪️As much as they are beautiful natural opals are extremely difficult to represent objectively on photos and sometimes on video as well. This can result in a potential dissatisfaction on behalf of a customer because they might have different expectations from their purchase, because opals are such tricky chameleons.

▪️Please keep this in mind when you are looking through the available items, because the item you will receive WILL definitely look different from the listing photos, which is ABSOLUTELY NORMAL. Even if the two opals have the same quality and brightness - they still will offer their own unique way of interacting with the light, which is what defines the Opal and gives it its “personality”.
Most listings contain photos of a few very similar opals unless indicated otherwise. You will receive an opal that looks very very close to the ones pictured in the listing photos.

▪️Black opals are PREDOMINATELY DARK gemstones and won’t appear as bright as the listing photos due to their dark overall base tone, which makes the play of color appear and “come to life” ONLY during movement as the stone interacts with different light sources in various settings and at different angles.
This interaction produces a specific “picture” that is being seen on a still image, but it will continue to change as the light around the opal changes, so it is IMPOSSIBLE to show what a fire opal actually looks like, because it is a CONTINUING PROCESS and not any particular set of colors on a background. This process is responding to the INTENSITY OF LIGHT, and photos are ALWAYS TAKEN UNDER DIRECT LIGHT SOURCE. This particular aspect of opal photography causes A LOT OF CONFUSION AND DISAPPOINTMENT coming from those who are UNPREPARED TO VIEW THE SAME OPAL WITHOUT THE DIRECT LIGHT SOURCE. When seen under different light or at a different angle - the opal WILL LOOK ABSOLUTELY DIFFERENT FROM ITS OWN PHOTO, so please read as much information about this issue as you can find to avoid being disappointed with your purchase.

▪️Any natural opal will look much brighter under artificial light and much duller under the natural light. That’s how you can tell that it is indeed a natural opal.
Opal is always changing its colors and never shows the exact same combination of colors with the same level of brightness, so expecting it to look like ANY PHOTO is simply unrealistic.
When an opal is seen in motion it looks entirely different almost every second following any minute changes in the angle of light or

Red colored fire in an opal will not turn a black opal into a garnet - it is a BLACK opal, so please be prepared that the beauty of this gemstone is going to be SUBTLE especially at first, but quite fascinating in its own progression.

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.
I VERIFY AUTHENTICITY of all the materials that I use for making my jewelry including testing precious metals to confirm the purity of 14k gold or solid 925 sterling silver. I select the best gemstones for Kissed By Fire jewelry collection always trying to find more unique and rare gems that have striking beauty and are genuine and natural gemstones that have not been enhanced, dyed or otherwise altered from their original state.
All verification, testing and quality grading is done by me using my knowledge of jewelry industry and gemology.

Processing and Shipping

Average processing time is 1-2 weeks. Some exceptions include solid gold items needing to be reordered which adds a week, some unexpected delays with shipping etc.,
Each item is made only to order - there are no premanufactured pieces, which I can drop in a mailbox the same day -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, which you deserve.
I accept URGENT ORDERS for certain items that can be made very quickly, but you have to get a confirmation from me to make sure that I am able to fulfill your order by the required deadline.
Default shipping method is USPS Priority Mail with an option to upgrade to express.

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 ❤️🙏🏻
