It is set in a plain sterling silver surround which is a simple setting that allows the colors to amplify and they eye becomes focused on the main feature of the pendant which of course is the stone itself.
A lovely gift either for yourself or someone you love.
All opals of course are unique but its really interesting when you find one with multiple colors like this large opal pendant with set with a triplet from the Coober Pedy opal fields.
The pattern in this stone is what some describe as being ‘floral’ in that the shapes of the colors approximates the look of flora.
What is a triplet?
A triplet opal demonstrates and even more stark and magnified color than a doublet at times. It has been found that the thinner the opal is, the brighter and more stark the foreground color.
The only problem is that if the opal is too thin it is not safe and can be easily damaged, particularly in the jewelry manufacturing process where the closing of jewelry claws can easily damage the edge of the opal.
Hence it was discovered that by attaching a clear crystal cap to the stone, the opal is protected and a very pleasing high dome is achieved. Hence, the term triplet which is a combination of a dark background, the precious opal attached the same as a doublet but with a clear cap fitted.
Triplets are one of the most popular forms of opal again because they look just like very expensive black opals at a very reasonable price.
