Blue Opal Pendant set in Sterling Silver

This beautiful Blue Opal Pendant is simply stunning! It is the only blue opal we have been able to obtain owing to being unusual and  sought after. The rich royal blue iridescent and oceanic colours in this pair of opal ‘doublets’ are both soothing and tranquil. Doublets are made from two layers of opal, a layer of colourful precious opal and a second layer of ‘potch’ or black opal. This gives the gemstone strength and helps amplify the colour. The pendant is set in Sterling Silver with a 925 hallmark on the clasp. Beware of artificial opals masquerading as real opals online. In the past few years man made opals have increasingly been sold online as real or genuine opals…. there’re not real!

Opal is found in a whole range of colours ranging from black to white and virtually every colour in between. Apart from the different colours opals can be transparent, translucent or opaque. These variations are due to different conditions during the formation of the stone. Blue Opal is made up of microscopic hydrated silica spheres. These minute spheres are found in all types of opal, but in blue opals these spheres are smaller.

Metaphysically, opal is the birthstone for October and was once regarded as the ‘gemstone of royalty’. Opals are thought of these days as ‘seductive’ and are associated with love, passion and desire. It is also a very protective stone that can enhance creativity, and optimism.

We supply this Blue Opal pendant in an attractive gift box. The pendant in the photograph here is the one we supply to you. Also don’t forget to look at our separate list of Sterling Silver Chains, available in various lengths, and weights.
