5.18 Carat Australian Opal Pear Shape, Diamond Yellow Gold Italian Drop Necklace


This magnificent drop pendant necklace features a stunning, 5.18 carat pear shaped Australian opal with exceptional play-of-color, also known as an opal's "fire." A rainbow of vivid colors including red, red being the rarest color seen in opal, dance within the entire body of this gem. The opal is set in an elegantly scalloped, 18k yellow gold "crown" setting and framed with brilliant white diamonds sparkling in an intricately detailed 18k white gold frame. Adding dimension and intrigue is the striking, 18k yellow gold background against which the opal sits. The yellow gold has been skillfully textured by hand with a gorgeous, brushed Florentine finish that displays high karat gold's ability to shine like the sun when in the hands of true masters. An intricately crafted, 18k white gold halo echos the inner halo, with a beautiful diamond-set bail adding the perfect finishing touch to this luxurious piece.

This stunning pendant was custom-designed and handmade for us in Florence, Italy. When you see it in person, you will be able to fully appreciate it as a beautiful work of art that displays the finest in artisan talent and skill. You will be proud to wear this spectacular pendant - especially if you don't mind receiving a little more attention than usual! 18-inch, 18k yellow gold chain included.
