The color of this piece feels so warm and comforting on this cold, gray day... I've linked yummy boulder opals of chocolate and violet and interspersed them with various briolettes of amethyst, champagne citrine and brown tourmaline. The silver has been given a near-black finish. The briolettes are wrapped in 14k gold and 18k gold links connect the boulder opals.
This necklace adjusts from 15 to 17 inches. I like to wear it quite close to my neck so that the opals are in as circular a formation as possible, in order to best show off the chains and briolettes that drape between.
