Photos cannot do this (or most Opals) justice, they really need to be seen to be believed.
The rolling kaleidoscope of colours swim fluidly throughout the entire surface of this Opal seemingly colliding and interjecting one another and the effect is mesmerising!
Crafted from 18ct yellow gold and Palladium the flat cabochon solid dark Opal displays what is known as ‘Harlequin’ pattern and measures 15.5mm x 11mm or approximately 2.56ct.
Surrounding the Opal are 20 round brilliant cut white diamonds grain set in a Palladium to a raised ornate pierced gallery to upswept shoulders and a plain flat band in 18ct yellow gold.
The background body colour of the Opal is a light grey/blue and the colours this one exhibits are breathtaking… vibrant large swatches of reds, oranges, greens, blues, and yellows, this beauty is full of surprises and shows colour in all lighting.
