Victorian Opal Hearts and Diamond Necklace/Brooch
ABOUT THIS JEWELRY
The heart--it's filled with all sorts of colorful emotions. As gemstones go, opals beautifully represent that marvelous mix, and this delightful pendant/brooch gleams with seven heart-shaped opals. Glowing with iridescent hues of blue, green, orangey-pink, and violet, they encircle a flower centered by a bright old mine-cut diamond with petals set with lively antique single cuts, while tiny rose-cut diamonds twinkle around the perimeter. The captivating confection suspends from an 18-inch blackened silver chain by way of a fancy bail set with a single opal. Total diamond weight - 1.00 carat, total opal weight - 2.30 carats. Hand fabricated in silver over 14K gold, it has a removable brooch pin and bail. Condition note: one opal has crazing (fine cracks due to water loss).
