Natural black opal necklace designed with a Celtic elements and made with a top quality +AAA grade black opal cabochon gemstone and a classic silver pendant setting which comes with a delicate chain. The chain is a rhodium plated over sterling silver, so the delicate 1.2mm style is the only one available at the moment.
Non rhodium chains are not recommended because they will last only a very short period of time.

Usually I list large size opals individually and not in the same listing,
but I made an exception here by listing a small group of few best quality grade 11x9mm natural black opals which are very similar. The cut and shape are excellent and almost flawless in every way.

The fire has a wide range of colors with mostly red color being dominant, which is the feature that is being sought for in black opals and adds value to the necklace.
The fire is very bright and full of intense flashes of color observed during movement as the opal interacts with the light.

The opals are natural, earth mined in a sustainable environmentally favorable way, solid and all measure 11x9mm.
The opal is earth-mined, natural, unaltered, solid.
It is purchased through companies which practice sustainable and only legally transported between borders- not smuggled.

The setting includes a small 11mm Celtic Knot shape connector, which adds a certain style to otherwise basic 4 prong pendant setting.

The necklace has an extension chain with a black opal bead attached to the end of it, which adds a lovely finishing touch, and looks wonderful when you present it as a gift 🎁

🟪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.

🟪 BLACK 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 grade, predominant color and brightness - they still will offer their own unique way of interacting with the light, which is what 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 when photographed, produces only a single unique specific “snapshot of time” and this is what is shown on a still image. This representation is particularly limited since an opal will continue to morph as the light around it changes, so it is IMPOSSIBLE to show what a natural fire opal actually looks like, because its play of color is a CONTINUING PROCESS, which is so much more complex than a photo can show.

▪️This process of the transitioning colors is responding to the increase in the INTENSITY OF LIGHT but with limited light source the play of color cannot be seen as well, because the dark background of the opal takes over and hides all the flashing lights leaving only dull hint of the actual color, which you can see under natural light.
Photos of any product are taken under strong direct light source, and I am no different with my photos, which I need to take under specific lamps optimized for my camera..This intense lighting around a black opal instantly helps to reveal the stone’s full potential when it comes to such characterizations as brightness, vibrancy and also the highest level of visibility of all opal’s colors.

▪️Of course any black opal cannot be viewed under the same light ALL THE TIME, and with the lowered amount of light present around it, the same black opal will appear ENTIRELY DIFFERENT from the look you saw on its photos. This change is A NATURAL RESPONSE, but very often it is being mistaken for a sign of inferior quality and a dishonest attempt to misrepresent the products I sell. Of course, this is not true at all, and a person familiar with a natural opal will understand that, but most people are ENTIRELY UNPREPARED TO SEE THEIR ITEM and have only their own assumption that their opal should “shine”, and if it does not shine, which it won’t, then a heavy cloud of disappointment weighs heavy on the shoulders of a customer, who starts to think that this misleading description is the fault of the seller and meanwhile they have been misled only by their UNREASONABLE EXPECTATIONS to see something that doesn’t exist.

▪️It is easy to predict how a bitter dispute can easily follow this very typical scenario, which I have been dealing with a lot to the point when I no longer wanted to sell natural opal and particularly black opal.
This is why I wrote this paragraph and included in every item description, so prospective buyers would read this and understand what exactly is happening, and what they should not expect from their black opal jewelry.

▪️Of course this doesn’t mean that a black opal is some kind of junk and will not look majestic and fascinating when it is given an opportunity to literary “show it’s true colors”. This requires movement, so the changing play of color can come to life and sparkle with colorful flashes of colors following your movement.

▪️To view the full capacity of the stone you received you should take it to a direct light source such as a table lamp, (not natural light even with strong sun) and just look at all of the colors in a similar environment to that of when my photos were taken. 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. The change in will show you that you have not been duped, but received the stone, which fully matches its description.
Remember that a black opal is always changing its colors and never shows the exact same combination as once preserved on a picture, so you should always realistic, but the sudden vibrancy, brightness and range of colors you are able to see should be very close to the listing you have purchased.

▪️For those who love to see a lot of red colored fire: please understand that any amount of red colored fire in an opal will not turn it into a garnet - it is a BLACK opal, so please be prepared that the beauty of this gemstone is going to be SUBTLE but quite fascinating in its own very unique way.

THIS PARAGRAPH IS A MUST READ MATERIAL FOR ALL BUYERS INTERESTED IN BLACK OPAL JEWELRY. THE ISSUE EXPLAINED HERE HAS CAUSED ME TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF STRESS OVER THE YEARS, AND NOW I AM TRYING TO PREVENT THESE SITUATIONS FROM OCCURRING AGAIN DUE TO THE EXACT SAME REASONS.

THANK YOU FOR READING AND NOW TRULY ENJOY YOUR SHOPPING EXPERIENCE WITHOUT THE FEAR OF BEING DISAPPOINTED WITH YOUR ITEM.

I DO NOT REPLY EVERY 24 HOURS DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS ADDRESSED HERE: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/912493473011/my-personal-situation-and-how-it-limits

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...

“MADE TO ORDER” MEANING: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/843427149775/creating-a-made-to-order-piece-of

▪️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;

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.

UNDERSTANDING NATURAL OPAL AND LEVELING YOUR EXPECTATIONS: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/900279778388/understanding-natural-opal-must-read

- 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!

MATERIALS, QUALITY STANDARD AND AUTHNTICIT GUARANTEE. Read more: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/900280901054/materials-and-the-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 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.
