  • Description

A stunning antique opal pendant from the Arts & Crafts movement, c1910's! Crafted in 15ct gold the piece boasts a wonderful opal doublet. The Australian opal is a replacement due to the original opal being a little worse for wear. It has been replaced resembling as close as to the original opal doublet. The opal displays a stunning bluish green play of colour, the iridescent green is eye-catching and there is purple and a hint of orange fire seen at a different angles. The colours dance in the daylight, quite mesmerizing! The opal is bordered and adorned with flower and leaf motifs in a wreath like design. The motifs have a wonderful texture and etching to the surface creating a life-like look. It appears the piece is rose gold underneath the yellow gilding (which is typical for antique jewellery), displaying a subtle rose gold exposure where the etching is ... adding further depth to the piece! There is a small wire loop at the bottom of the pendant, an adornment may have been suspended from the pendant at some stage. You may like to have it removed or suspend something of your choice from it. A shaped and nicely complemented bail dangles to the top, there is a small ring placed behind the bail design where a chain of your choice can slide through. The ring is small measuring 2.70mm opening.

The piece is stamped "15CT" on a plaque to the reverse and has been tested to 15ct gold. A nice size pendant measuring 4.40cm long (including bail) and 2cm wide... not too small and not too big!

A wonderful antique pendant. Perfect for any opal lover and would look fabulous worn day or night!
