Some time ago a broker and gemmologist came to me to present their stones. I was extremely impressed by a beautiful set of opals. They were obtained from the legendary Welo mines in Ethiopia - the most beautiful water opals on the planet come from there!
Opal was talked about centuries ago, as far back ancient Greece! Its name probably comes from the Sanskrit word ‘upala’, which means ‘a precious stone’.
Inspired by this set of stones, I designed a necklace and a pair of earrings. Each stone will be in its own perfectly fitting frame, chained along with the other opals to form garlands that sparkle like a rainbow.
The set can be made in any colour of gold.
