This gorgeous Welo opal throws beams of amazing colours--different at evey angle.
Initially these gems might seem to look much alike until you start moving and rotating them and then they reveal they are totally unique--each showing different light patterns from the other.
The images in this listing show the amazing moods this gem can display.
Set in a simple but elegant basket of 10k yellow gold and furnished with a 14/20YG quality chain.
Do not confuse 14/20 GF [Gold Filled]with gold plating which wears through very quickly.14/20 Gold Filled is a process of bonding an item in 14k gold to a weight 1/20th of the total weight of the item.Lifetime lasting and much more affordable than all 14k gold.With the price of gold these days this adaptation of gold is becoming more and more desirable.
Welo opals will reveal their colours differently under various lighting conditions and background colours.
All my images are taken under OTT lights which are corrected to daylight values.Nothing is done to enhance the natural display of colour from these opals.
Not likely any one in your circle will have anything like this or even be able to identify the gem--Welo opals from Ethiopia are that rare---many have yet to see it!
Buy with confidence as you will receive this exact item.
