Vivid Pipe Opal Cuff with Chrysoprase and Cobalto Calcite


Well, hello! I am quite excited about the color in this 30 carat pipe opal--it's a stunner! I decided that other bright stones didn't detract from the beauty one bit so I stacked it above a minty chrysoprase and a bold cobalto calcite druzy after wrapping it in a 22k gold. The three main stones sit between arched and angled oxidized silver wire and 2.5mm tourmalines in various colors are placed around the larger stones. Silver dots along the wire give way to a cluster of pink sapphires and one of tanzanite on 14k pins.

The cuff is 2 1/4 inches wide at the front and tapers to 3/4 of an inch in the back. The interior of the cuff measures 2 1/4 by 2 inches with an inch opening.
