Monarch opal, sterling silver and 14K pendant/necklace (one-of-a-kind)

315.00
  • Handmade, one-of-a-kind sterling/fine silver pendant with a recycled solid 14K yellow gold drops
  • hangs on a 16" sterling silver chain (with hammered handmade clasp made by the artist; see photo #4)
  • Monarch cultured opal stone—this stone was cut by Stone Phase (Amy Nicole). Although Monarch is a cultured opal, it is made in a lab using silica nano and mono particles (the same way a natural, mined opal is made in the earth). Under a microscope, GIA confirms that Monarch opal has the same characteristics and composition to natural opal, making it a true, GIA certified synthetic opal. No colorants are used in the stone—the process itself is a natural process and the color you see in the stone is from light refraction (not dye). Developed by the inventor of the Zachary treatment (a stabilization method for natural turquoise) and the owner of the Sleeping Beauty mine, these opals have been in the making for many years. The process of growing the opals is lengthy! Knot & Splice is truly honored to be using these high-quality webbed opals in our works as American-mined opals are extremely rare (very expensive) and often brittle when available. Read more about these lab cultured opals and see the GIA report here.
  • the back of the pendant is hallmarked ".925" for sterling silver and "14K" for 14K gold. It is also signed "NM" (signature for Nicole Melton)
  • handmade in the USA by Nicole Jo Melton
  • Please see care instructions: FAQ/Policies.
  • Ready-to-ship. This item is completely one-of-a-kind. You are purchasing the pictured item (pendant with chain). Your pendant will be carefully packaged on a leather holder and carefully wrapped inside a Knot & Splice gift box (regardless of checkout "gift box" preference). Please see current processing times for both made-to-order and ready-to-ship items on our FAQ/Policies page.

 

Please note: While every effort is made to photograph the items to be an accurate representation, photography and computer monitors have limitations and differences. Colors and brightness may vary on different devices. I believe these pieces look so much prettier in person when held in the hand and admired by the eye (I've also been told this many times by Knot & Splice customers). I hope you're delighted when you receive your special piece in the mail.
