The pendant is suspended from a 14 ct yellow gold snake chain via an integrated, hallmarked ring loop attachment which is accented with a collet set modern brilliant round cut diamond.
The chain can be worn at two different lengths, 60.93cm/24" and 71.12cm/24".
The pendant suspension loop is hallmarked to the reverse with the 18 ct gold fineness mark (780) and maker's mark (LLC), and the substantial chain with the 14ct gold fineness mark (.585)
NOTE *Boulder opals are the second most valuable type of opal (following black opal). Boulder opals are easily distinguished by their layer of solid brown ironstone left on the back of the stone. Boulder opals, as the name suggests, are mined from large ironstone boulders under the ground. Thin veins of colourful opal forms in cracks and fissures in these boulders. Because these veins of colour are so thin, opal cutters need to leave the ironstone on the back of the opal to form a full sized stone. The thin layer of opal in boulder opals can display any colour of the spectrum resulting in a unique iridescence.
