A rare quality grade natural black fire opal pendant necklace made with solid 925 sterling silver or 14k gold filled over sterling silver finish. The gold filled finish can be either rose or yellow gold and made with tarnish resistant technique.
This kind of opal is quite rare to find especially in larger 10x8mm size, and it is very special for its intense bright red fire (red is the rarest color in natural opal) that’s readily visible under almost any lighting conditions.
The opal’s stunning play of color is visible also thanks to its flawless professionally done cut which emphasizes its beauty and brings more of the vibrant reflections into view when facets are exposed to the precise angle of light.
This is a natural earth mined unaltered genuine black fire opal and its colors are purely the result of organically occurring processes - not manipulation by human hand to enhance the color.
The amount of red fire is really ideal, so it allows other colors to be visible as well ( usually purely red colored opals have only red and green fire on opposite sides) but as a dominant color it adds a stunning degree of vibrancy to the play of color.
With an opal that has so much red it is sometimes possible to confuse it for a garnet from the first look, which happens sometimes.
Also, you might want to consider buying a pair of matching earrings while I have them in stock or maybe even getting a matching ring with a similar unique red colored black fire opal.
The opals in this quality grade are not always readily available, but now I have extra stones because I took a year long break, so you can use this opportunity to get a special set made with matching black opals that truly impress.
I accept very flexible monthly payment plans, so you can just reserve your stones and pay as you go. I like to take my time working on the jewelry anyway, so it will give me a chance to perfect those details which make the pieces with the best craftsmanship I can possibly offer.

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.
- 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.

Julia was amazing! She went above and beyond and attempting to match an existing opal ring. She did not disappoint! My new wife had an amazing opal pendant to match her wedding ring and got compliments on both our whole wedding day. I’ll be recommending Julia to anyone looking for an opal or piece of unique jewelry.
