February 2024 Gemologist Jewelry Pick of the Month - 7.00ct. Opal Estate Necklace Yellow Gold - J40254

Our Graduate Gemologist, Graydon Gesner, selected this Boulder Opal Necklace as his Jewelry Pick of the Month. He especially likes, " The free-form opal design attached to the matrix and its beautiful blue-green play of color as well as the Gold Nugget Mounting which highlights this magnificent piece of jewelry".

Boulder Opals are mined in Queensland, Australia. Heavy machinery is used to unearth layers of clay to extract the Opal. As described in Gem-A, The Gemmological Association of Great Britain, " Once the opal layer and the opal bearing boulders are exposed, these are then cracked open to see if they contain any opal".

Boulder Opals come in varying unique natural shapes making the jewelry an unexpected beauty.

This is a remarkable Opal Estate Necklace, crafted in 14K Yellow Gold, featuring a 7.00ct. Apx. Blue-Green Natural Boulder Opal with the Matrix still attached. This extraordinary Opal Estate Necklace is located in our Tampa store with a retail price of $6,995.
