14k Solid Gold Opal & Pearl Necklace
- As seen in Perfect Wedding (August 2010)
- AAA grade natural coloured pearls
- 18 carats solid Australian Mintabie opal
- Rare lavender/gold/copper colour
This opal and pearl necklace is handmade from 18 carats of solid Australian Mintabie (or Mintubi) opal, AAA grade rare natural lavender/gold/copper coloured freshwater pearls in a large 7.5mm size and solid 14 carat gold.
There are five large 8mm stripey cream based Mintabie opals used with crystal jelly bars and six smaller crystal based Mintabie opals. Each opal is accented with solid 14k gold beads and strung alongside some of the most beautiful freshwater pearls we've come across to date. It's hard to photograph opals and there is more colour play than the camera would suggest.
This opal and pearl necklace is finished with a solid 14k gold toggle clasp and finishing beads and is fully hallmarked by the London Assay office and stamped with Sugarpuss London's unique studio maker's mark.
