Blue opal Sterling silver pendant
A shiny blue 4 mm Opal, suspended between two Sterling silver rings that Ive made.
This Opal is a Synthetic Opal (Polymer Impregnated Synthetic Opal) is composed by 80% silica & 20% resin. It takes about a year to grow in laboratory and the brilliance is grown layer by layer.
I think the colour makes up for the fact it’s not a natural opal. The Sterling silver rings measure approximately 30 mm and 20 mm. Definitely one of my favourite pieces.
The pendant is hung from either on a 16 or 18 inch Sterling silver chain.
