Lush Green Cultured Opal Heart Pendant in Sterling Silver
Are you someone who's heart lies in the tropics? I give you this stunning deep green cultured opal heart. It sparkles with iridescence and changes tone when in the light. There are subtle whorls in the stone that can't be captured on camera, & a glowing flash of neon green from inside/center. It is a medium-sized cultured opal (grown in a lab). Set in a smooth sterling bezel on 2 layers of hand-stamped sterling silver sheet. Above the heart is a sterling silver orchid, which was made by hand by pressing recycled silver in a hydraulic press against a steel die, then sawed out & sanded. Oxidized in liver of sulphur, & then sanded and polished to bring out the highlights of the silver. Pendant measures 1 7/8" long & 1" wide.Hangs from an 18.5" sterling silver rolo chain with lobster clasp closure.
