Pink Opal Pendant
Pink Opal Pendant | Bargain Basement
Pink opal ladies pendant with tantalisingly subtle colour, crafted by hand in a fine sterling silver setting. This eye-catching stone is also known as common opal because it can be found in many countries around the world but unlike precious opal, this variety lacks play of colour.
Common opals come in a variety of different colours and when used as a gemstone it tends to be polished as a cabochon. The finest stones boast incredible colour and can also take on an exemplary polish but sadly they're frequently overlooked because of the popularity of the precious opal which is well known for being fascinatingly iridescent.
The reason this pink opal pendant has been added to the Bargain Basement is purely because the bale at the top was made slightly larger than it should have been. For those who prefer wearing their pendants on a thicker style of chain, this minor imperfection would be ideal.
