Vintage Natural Opal and Diamond Pendant in 14k Yellow Gold
I've heard that this gorgeous pendant reminds some people of a guardian angel and some people of a penguin. Here, see a stunning opal with gorgeous flashes of pinfire color an sparkly bright diamonds! The natural opal is a teardrop shape, measuring about 20mm x about 14.25mm. The play of color within the stone changes from tiny points towards the top and the flashes get bigger towards the bottom of the stone. On the top of the pendant are three gorgeous marquise diamonds and three round ones are tension set at the base of the pendant, weighing a combined 0.50ctw. The stones are G/H color and Si1 clarity. They frame the stone, held in a solid gold basket, beautifully. The pendant features a standard bail and the piece is crafted 14k yellow gold. It weighs 5.3g. Including the bail the pendant measures 1.5" in length and just over 1/2" across in width.
