Opal 14k yellow gold Art Nouveau inspired pendant.
We bought this opal years ago, it was the result of an irresistible infatuation that we have with these ethereal gemstones. There is nothing more remarkable or hypnotic than a beautiful opal.
Finding new inspiration from our semiannual trip to the world's greatest gemshow, we chose this opal as the first subject for a concentrated effort to design beautiful jewelry around all of our loose gemstone inventory over the next two years.
As might be guessed, we love the Art Nouveau art style and opals seem to be most perfectly suited for it. We love how this piece turned out, the organic flow, the inspiration from leaves and vines, the balanced asymmetry and the beautiful contrast of blue/green opal fire and polished yellow gold.
This is an Australian opal from the mining town of Lightning Ridge, one of the most unique communities in the world, 600 miles into the outback and most certainly on our bucket list for a future visit. Working with this opal makes us feel closer to this special place. Designing this lovely pendant around it is nothing less than a privilege. It calls to a special person somewhere in the world.
