Opal Pendant From StonesandSilver UK
Opal jewellery is perfect for people with an October birthday as it is the October birthstone. All the metal used in each pendant on these pages is sterling silver (92.5% pure) or sometimes fine silver (99% pure).
The different types of opal can be quite confusing! The ones I usually have in stock are Opal Triplets, Opal Doublets, Solid opal and Lab Created or Synthetic Opal. Opal triplets (and doublets) are genuine natural opal but with a black stone base and a rock crystal cap protecting the stone (doublets don’t have the crystal cap), they are better than natural opal at resisting knocks, so much better than the untreated stone for things like rings. I often have Ethiopian rough opal items in stock, these are beautiful natural opal with amazing colours and stunning for opal pendants or earrings but they need to be treated with care because of opal’s natural brittleness. There is now just being developed, a beautiful range of synthetic opals and I am stocking an increasing range of these as they are lovely to look at, have a fantastic range of colours and are harder wearing than natural opals. so fantastic for all types of opal jewellery including pendants.P&P and a simple gift box/bag (to the UK) is FREE!
