Meet Odelia,

A Dainty, Round Cut Opal Necklace

A vibrant green flash lights up the surface of the round cut opal, accompanied by secondary colors of blue and teal.  The inside of the sterling silver pendant mounting has been oxidized, turning the silver black; as a result, this natural white crystal opal has taken on a deep blue body color, resembling the look of a solid black opal.  The back of the pendant is signed "SY" by the artist, Sam Yah.  18" sterling silver chain included.
Though most opal enhancements are stable, we suggest avoiding prolonged and unnecessary exposure to water when wearing your enhanced opal jewelry, such as hand-washing with rings, showering, hot tubbing, and swimming.  This will ensure that the look of your piece stands the test of time.

        About Opal

        While many believe opal to come only in a traditional white hue, this common misconception cannot be more inaccurate.  With over 200 varieties of natural opal discovered so far, the historically referred "Queen of Gems" can come in a wide variety of colors- before the stone's famous "play of color" rainbow effect is even taken into consideration.  Over 90% of the world's opal is produced in Australia with other well-known deposits located in Mexico, Ethiopia, Brazil, and the United States.

        Chemically, opal is an integrated combination of water and silica.  Water content in opal can range from 3% to 21% by weight, with average jewelry material ranging between 6% and 10%.  Because of this, it is advised to store your opal jewelry with care; safes and bank vaults can be notoriously dry.  We suggest storing opal in an airtight container along with a piece of water-moistened cotton when dry storage conditions are anticipated.  Some varieties are more resilient to harsh conditions than others.  It is safe to clean solid opal jewelry with warm water, mild soap, and a soft-bristled toothbrush.  Avoid chemicals, harsh abrasives, and ultrasonic cleaners.
