WELCOME TO MY STORE CAROLINE JULIEN DESIGNS AND GEMS!! SPECIALIZING IN RARE, HIGH GRADE AND EXOTIC GEMSTONES. INTRODUCING MY NEW 2021 SPRING COLLECTION!! UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS STUNNING GENUINE NATURAL A+ GRADE ETHIOPIAN WELO OPAL FACETED BRIOLETTES STERLING SILVER NECKLACE AND EARRING SET.

I'VE NAMED THIS ONE OF A KIND NECKLACE "LUMEN". THIS DESIGNER NECKLACE MEASURES 18.5 INCHES LONG WITH AN EXTENDER CHAIN OF 1.75 INCHES, SO IS ADJUSTABLE FROM 18.5 INCHES UP TO 20.25 INCHES. YOU CAN ALSO DO THIS NECKLACE UP ALONG THE MAIN CHAIN TO MAKE IT SHORTER THAN 18.5, OR IF YOU NEED THIS NECKLACE SHORTENED, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I'LL BE HAPPY TO CUSTOMIZE IT FOR YOU. THIS NECKLACE HAS 17 FLAT TEARDROP SHAPED OPAL FACETED BRIOLETTES THAT MEASURE 7X5X2.5MM UP TO 11X7.5X4MM. ON TOP OF EACH OPAL, I'VE ADDED A 1.5MM CLEAR AB SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL.

I'VE EXPERTLY WIRE WRAPPED THESE GEMSTONES ONTO THE STERLING SILVER CHAIN WITH 28 GAUGE STERLING SILVER HALF HARD WIRE. THE STERLING SILVER CHAIN IS AN ELONGATED FLAT OVAL LINK WHICH MEASURES 6X3X1.5X1MM AND GLITTERS IN THE LIGHT. ON THE END OF THE EXTENDER CHAIN, I'VE ADDED 2 MATCHING OPAL FACETED BRIOLETTE BEADS WHICH MEASURE 7X4X2MM UP TO 8X7X3MM. THIS'TAIL' LOOKS BEAUTIFUL ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK HANGING DOWN. THE STERLING SILVER LOBSTER CLAW CLASP MEASURES 9X6MM AND IS STAMPED'925'.

THE TOTAL CARAT WEIGHT OF ALL THESE GEMSTONES IS 14.42 CARATS. THE MATCHING EARRINGS HAVE 3 WELO OPAL BRIOLETTES EACH WHICH MEASURE 7X4X3MM UP TO 10X7X4MM. THESE EARRINGS HANG 1.65 INCHES OR 42MM LONG.

THE EARRING HOOKS ARE STERLING SILVER WITH GORGEOUS LITTLE CLEAR CUBIC ZIRCONIA STONES SET INTO THE FRONT. IF YOU PREFER PLAIN STERLING SILVER LEVERBACKS, SHEPHERD'S HOOKS OR POSTS, PLEASE LE ME KNOW AND I'LL CHANGE THEM FOR YOU.

THESE ETHIOPIAN WELO OPALS ARE 100% NATURAL AND UNTREATED. THE GRADE OF THESE OPALS IS VERY HIGH. ALL OF THESE GEMSTONES HAVE VERY GOOD FACETING AND POLISH. THERE ARE VERY MINOR CHIPS BESIDE THE DRILL HOLES ON SOME OF THE OPALS WHICH ARE ONLY NOTICEABLE ON CLOSE EXAMINATION. THE FOCAL BRIOLETTE HAS A TINY OFF COLOR INCLUSION ON THE FRONT THAT CAN ONLY BE SEEN WITH VERY CLOSE EXAMINATION.

THE BODY COLOR OF THESE OPALS IS WHITE, TO SLIGHTLY OFF WHITE INTO BLUE. ALL OF THESE OPALS DISPLAY BRIGHT OPALESCENT FIRE IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT, BUT A BIT LESS IN LOWER LIGHT. THESE OPALS DISPLAY RED, BRIGHT PEACH, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, TEAL, AND BLUE FIRE. I HAD A DIFFICULT TIME PHOTOGRAPHING THESE, BUT I PROMISE YOU, ALL OF THESE OPALS HAVE GOOD FIRE IN THEM. ETHIOPIAN WELO OPALS ARE MINED IN THE WOLLO PROVINCE, NEAR THE TOWN OF WEGAL TENA, IN ETHIOPIA, AFRICA.

SINCE 2008, THIS FINE GRADE OPAL HAS BEEN MINED BY HAND BY THE LOCALS AND FINE SPECIMENS HAVE COME TO RIVAL AUSTRALIAN OPALS. FINE WELO OPALS 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 AMORPHOUS 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 THE TYPES OF AUSTARLIAN OPAL: BLACK, WHITE, CRYSTAL, MATRIX, JELLY AND BOULDER OPALS. THERE ARE MEXICAN FIRE OPALS, NEVADA OPAL, HYALITE, HYDROPHANE AND HONEY OPAL.

OTHER FORMS OF OPAL INCLUDE PERUVIAN OPAL, OREGON OWYHEE OPAL, NEVADA OPAL AND COMMON OPAL WHICH IS FOUND IN MANY PLACES AROUND THE WORLD. THIS DESIGNER NECKLACE SET IS VERY EYE CATCHING, EXQUISITELY DESIGNED AND IS FOR HIGH FASHION WEAR. THIS NECKLACE IS FIT FOR A QUEEN OR PRINCESS!
