WELCOME TO MY STORE CAROLINE JULIEN DESIGNS AND GEMS!! INTRODUCING MY NEW 2019 SPRING COLLECTION! ONE OF A KIND BRIDAL / FORMAL COLLECTION.

UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS STUNNING GENUINE NATURAL ETHIOPIAN WELO OPAL FACETED BRIOLETTES STERLING SILVER NECKLACE AND EARRINGS SET!!! I'VE NAMED THIS NECKLACE "HALO". THIS ONE OF A KIND NECKLACE SET HAS 15 FULL TEAR DROP SHAPED FACETED WELO OPAL BRIOLETTES THAT MEASURE 6.5X4MM UP TO 13X7MM. ON TOP OF EACH OPAL, I'VE ADDED 1.5MM CLEAR AB SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS. IN BETWEEN THE BRIOLETTES, I'VE ADDED 18 ETHIOPIAN WELO OPAL MICROFACED ROUND BEADS WHICH MEASURE 2.5MM UP TO 4X4MM.

THE TOTAL CARAT WEIGHT OF ALL OF THE OPALS ON THIS NECKLACE SET IS 21.17 CARATS! THE NECKLACE MEASURES 18 INCHES LONG WITH AN EXTENDER CHAIN OF 1.5 INCHES, SO IT IS ADJUSTABLE BETWEEN 18 INCHES UP TO 19.5 INCHES. I CAN SHORTEN OR LENGTHEN THIS NECKLACE VERY EASILY, SO FEEL FREE TO ASK! THE STERLING SILVER LOBSTER CLAW CLASP MEASURES 9X6MM AND IS STAMPED'925'. THE STERLING SILVER CHAIN IS A FLAT OVAL LINK THAT MEASURES 6X3X1.5MM. THE EXTENDER END OF THE CHAIN HAS A WELO OPAL BRIOLETTE ACCENT BEAD WHICH MEASURES 9X5MM, AS WELL AS 2 ROUND OPALS. THIS'TAIL' LOOKS BEAUTIFUL HANGING DOWN ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK. THE BRIOLETTES WERE EXPERTLY WIRE WRAPPED ONTO THE CHAIN WITH 28 GAUGE STERLING SILVER HALF HARD WIRE. THE MATCHING EARRINGS HANG 1.85 INCHES OR 44MM LONG. THERE ARE THREE FACETED OPAL BRIOLETTES EACH WHICH MEASURE 7X4MM UP TO 10X7MM. I'VE ALSO ADDED TWO MICROFACETED ROUND OPALS- 3X3MM UP TO 4X4MM. THE STERLING SILVER EARRING HOOKS ARE LEVER BACK STYLE WITH GORGEOUS LITTLE CLEAR CUBIC ZIRCONIA STONES SET INTO THE FRONT. IF YOU'D PREFER PLAIN STERLING SILVER LEVER BACKS, SHEPHERD'S HOOKS OR POSTS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I'LL BE HAPPY TO CHANGE THEM FOR YOU. THESE ETHIOPIAN WELO OPALS ARE 100% NATURAL AND UNTREATED.

THEY ARE UNIFORM IN SHAPE AND ARE BEAUTIFULLY FACETED AND POLISHED. ONE OR TWO OF THESE HAS VERY MINOR SURFACE IMPERFECTIONS AND OFF COLOR INCLUSIONS (TINY BLACK SPOTS). ONE OR TWO ARE NOT DRILLED STRAIGHT (AND SECURED WITH JEWELER'S GLUE) , OR MAY HAVE TINY CHIPS BESIDE THE DRILL HOLES; BUT THE IMPERFECTIONS ARE ONLY NOTICEABLE UPON VERY CLOSE EXAMINATION. THE BODY COLOR OF THESE OPALS ARE WHITE TO SLIGHTLY OFF WHITE INTO BLUE AND DISPLAY BRIGHT OPALESCENT FLASH WHEN VIEWED FROM ALL DIRECTIONS. THESE OPALS FLASH VERY BRIGHTLY IN SUNLIGHT, BUT A BIT LESS IN LOW OR FLUORESCANT LIGHT.

I HAD A DIFFICULT TIME PHOTOGRAPHING THESE OPALS, BUT ALL OF THESE HAVE VERY GOOD FIRE IN THEM. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPPOINTED, GUARANTEED. THE OPALESCANT FIRE INCLUDES RED, PEACH, YELLOW, GREEN AND BLUE FIRE. THE FIRE IN THESE OPALS COUPLED WITH THE FACETING, MAKES THESE SPARKLE AND FLASH LIKE DIAMONDS! THESE ARE ALSO LIGHTWEIGHT, SO ARE COMFORTABLE FOR ALL DAY WEAR.

ETHIOPIAN WELO OPALS ARE MINED IN THE WOLLO PROVENCE NEAR THE TOWN OF WEGAL TENA IN ETHIOPIA, AFRICA. SINCE 2008, THIS FINE GRADE OPAL HAS BEEN MINED BY HAND BY LOCALS AND FINE SPECIMENS HAVE COME TO RIVAL AUSTRALIAN OPALS. FINE WELO OPAL SPECIMENS CAN DISPLAY BRIGHT ALL SPECTRAL FIRE AND CAN BE SET AS A SOLID OPAL AS OPPOSED TO DOUBLETS OR TRIPLETS; WHICH IS COMMON FOR AUSTRALIAN OPALS. OPAL IS A HYDRATED AMPHOROUS FORM OF SILICA WHICH IS CLASSIFIED AS A MINERALOID.

THE INTERNAL STRUCTURE OF OPAL CONTAINS MICROSCOPIC SPHERES OF SILICON DIOXIDE MOLECULES ARRANGED IN REGULAR CLOSELY PACKED PLANES. ALL SPECTRAL OPALESCENCE IS OBSERVED FROM THE DIFFRACTION OF LIGHT PASSING THROUGH THE OPAL STRUCTURE.

OTHER TYPES OF OPAL ON THE MARKET INCLUDE AUSTRALIAN OPALS: WHITE OPAL, BLACK OPAL, CRYSTAL OPAL, AND BOULDER OPALS. OTHER FORMS OF OPAL INCLUDE MEXICAN FIRE OPAL, PERUVIAN OPAL, NEVADA OPAL, OWYHEE OPAL FROM OREGON AND COMMON OPAL WHICH IS FOUND IN MANY PLACES AROUND THE WORLD. THIS NECKLACE IS STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS AND IS FOR HIGH FASHION WEAR. THIS PIECE IS FIT FOR A QUEEN OR PRINCESS!

THIS NECKLACE SET WOULD BE PERFECT FOR YOUR WEDDING, GRAD OR FORMAL EVENT. THIS ONE OF A KIND BRIDAL / FORMAL NECKLACE SET WAS CREATED AND HAND MADE BY ME WITH LOVE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO STOP BY AND VISIT MY STORE!
