The "Red "N Black Tie Opal" is a little bit tongue-in-cheek so to speak, denoting a sense of evening formal wear - but that is the title description I have chosen for this stunning Red Gem Opal pendant creation - however, this Opal Pendant would look perfect being worn anytime, night or day !
This stunning Opal Pendant has been created using a beautiful piece of Cooberpedy Crystal Gem opal and although the primary color is a striking red with crimson, smaller electric flashes of blue and green can be seen here also.
An intarsia influence is evident here with the perfectly fitting sweeping band of jet black leadlight glass (MOHS Hardness 6.5 to 6) giving the effect of a "black tie or sash against a red gown".
This very striking and very unique Gem Opal Pendant, has been sculptured and polished to a perfect mirror finish.
Totally Elegant !
