Monarch Opal Fringe Pendant
Monarch Opal is a man-made opal that is far more beautiful than real opals, in my opinion. The colors and patterns in each stone hint at cotton candy, fairies, sea glass, unicorns, glitter and mermiads Or maybe that's just me. The stones have delinated striations and an edgier look than their rather banal ancestors.
This opal specimen measures 19 x 19 mm and is set in sterling silver. A bohemian, textured fringe of silver is soldered beneath the stone. Total length of the pendant is 1 3/4 inches. Hangs from a sterling silver chain, finished with a lobster clasp. The chain in the photos is 19 1/2" long, but can be shortened, if desired. Just leave a note for me when you check out, specifying how much you'd like it to be shortened.
