Imagine: the Aurora Borealis captured in a stone - that's what the gorgeous Australian Boulder Opal in the Borealis Boulder Opal Lariat Necklace resembles. Its ironstone background is reminiscent of the dark night sky with beautiful swirling flares of color; predominantly greens, with an ombre spectrum ranging from cobalt blue to hot pink. It's like the Icelandic night skies, concentrated on one small surface.
Such a World Wonder of a stone can hold its own, yet this one is supported by a cast of nearly half a carat of brilliant white diamonds. Two larger round brilliant cuts are suspended at the bottom of the lariat that dangles from the opal's carefully formed bezel. Two smaller diamonds adorn the chain that stems off the Y shape of the necklace. All four diamonds are set in handmade yellow gold bezels.
Color juxtaposed with darkness contrasted by sparkling white = the perfect composition. One of a kind.

*Opal Note: Opals change appearance under varying conditions. We do our best to capture them in different lighting and as accurately as is possible. Kindly ask questions prior to purchase. // Opals are soft stones; please treat them kindly by avoiding chemical exposures and blunt force.
*Most items are made to order, so please allow for the necessary fabrication time (up to 4-6 weeks; sooner whenever possible). We use natural gemstones, and as such, some inclusions and slight variation from stone to stone should be expected. The subtle differences in each piece are part of what makes it beautiful and uniquely yours.
