Opal Necklaces

Wonderful pink and blue Peruvian opals! Enjoy them, and if you own jewelry, save your opal jewelry, because according to some sources, the mines for the Peruvian opals will be played out before long. I love Peruvian opals, pink or blue, and I love to work with them. A word of warning though: if you do not like inclusions in jewelry, avoid our Peruvian opal jewelry. While we do have some non-included (to the naked eye) opals, they are rare, and I put off using them often. I much prefer using the pink opals that may be heavily included but that are often also a dark or bright pink or those opals that have areas of translucency. Because pink opals vary so much in their coloration, I go through strands and strands usually to match tones - peachy tones, beige tones, pink tones - and stones that are similarly included with black or brown or even a yellowish tint. So you've been warned! These stones are not perfect - but again, that is one reason that I love them so.

The three blue opal pendants are lovely blue Peruvian opal smooth pendant beads that are alternated with some of my favorite silver-laced lampwork beads by Annie Divelbiss. The other four large nuggets are also blue Peruvian opal although as is typical of much blue opal they are very included and some have a greenish to yellowish tinge. The upper part of the necklace has a mixture of alternating labradorite rondelles (with flash that is hard to see in the photo) and genuine Australian opal chips. All metal components are sterling silver.
