Yellow Opal and Black Tourmaline Necklace
This necklace is made of flat faceted slabs of Yellow Opal. I have used vermeil gold spacers in between each slab in order to articulate the composition while enhancing the different shades of each Opal slab. Black Tourmaline adds a nice contrast and recalls the dark veins in the Opal.
This stone has a certain resemblance to Amber. Many of you have asked me for pieces made from Amber. Nowadays, genuine amber is hard to find - much of what is sold as amber is in fact reconstituted from resin and amber powder or fragments. I am not an expert and find it hard to tell the difference - hence my preference to only work with genuine stones.
This is quite a statement piece. The stone itself is absolutely gorgeous and I was once more extremely lucky to have found just enough material to make one necklace.
It sits nicely around the neck and is not heavy because the stones are cut quite thin and the weight is very well distributed.
The spacer beads and lock are 18 carat gold plated sterling silver.
The necklace is 55 cm all together however I can alter it according to your preferences.
This is a unique piece hand made by myself in my studio in Richmond London.
