The undulating, dimensional, Russian filigree wraps around the bezel like a ribbon to create the illusion of folded lace. The filigree is composed of a continuous 18k yellow gold frame with a high polish and multiple 22k yellow gold, scolloped filler wires with a matte finish. Each filler wire is shaped individually and tension fitted into the frame before micro-welding and soldering.
The Koroit opal cabochon sparkles green/yellow from the front and flashes blue with red highlights when rotated side to side. Its depth is unparalleled. This unique stone is completely natural and is solid opal, not a doublet or triplet. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.The pendant is suspended from a handmade, 22k yellow gold, loop-in-loop chain with a forged 18k gold clasp.
