Opal Cameo Necklace/Brooch PIn in Gold-Customize with Your Portrait
Opal is a beautiful stone for a cameo. The portrait details are more subtle than Agate, due to the softness of Opal. The play of color adds a special beauty to the Jewel. Carving Opal is a delicate process and great experience is required. Custom portrait carved from your photos of a loved one.
This Opal and was found in Cooper Pedy, Australia. As this was a crystal Opal I made a black onyx slice to back the stone. This enhances the color and makes the portrait more prominent. The play of color in a fine Opal gives a wonderful effect, especially as the gemstone is turned, as this changes with movement.
The dual purpose setting is in Gold and can be worn as a brooch pin or a pendant. The stars engraved around the carving are a tribute to her sports team's logo. The reverse is engraved with a personal message and a posy of flowers. Delivery in 8 weeks.
