Stunning Yowah Crystal Opal, 14.30ct in size, and 27 x 10 x 8mm in dimensions. Showing bright blues, yellows, reds, and greens throughout with just a touch of the mother stone on the point and base. The Opal has an open back and is set with a triple bezel consisting of a double sterling silver inner and a filigree 14k yellow gold outer bezel, enhanced with solid 925 beaded rope and topped with a bit of vintage - a Hildesheimer Rose branch from one of my great finds; part of a vintage German Silver Sugar Tongs with Hildesheimer Rose and Bird Claw footed tongs.
[They are made in West Germany, ca the 1870s. Featuring openwork with a beautiful ornate Hildesheimer Rose traditional design - literally Thousand-years old rosebush, also known as the Rose of Hildesheim. Hallmarked with 835 - German mark for 83.5% silver purity, common for silverware, and a mark "Crescent and Crown" (Halbmond und Reichskrone) for silver.]
I have oxidised it to bring out the textured pattern on the sterling silver cuff. A comfortable fit that is adjustable slightly.
