This pendant contains a beautiful Ethiopian opal from the Welo mines. The stone is domed and is 1cm long and 8mm wide. It displays strong colours throughout, which vary from green to orange and blue. I set it in 9 Ct gold on a central bar with a heart-shaped gold wire surround. The entire pendant is 2.7cm long and 1.7cm wide at its widest point. The back is hallmarked for Edinburgh 1019. It is quite a dressy piece of jewellery, the likes of which you would be hard pressed to find in a High Street jeweller’s shop.
