This handcrafted statement pendant features two gorgeous stones; an incredible piece of faceted Pink Opal that has is filled with swirls of blush and peach within it, and a luminous purple Amethyst that glows when the sun hits it. The pendant setting has been made with a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around both stones, and trims, balls, crescent moons and accents all created by hand and hammer from sterling silver. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidised darker in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. It hangs from a 72cm adjustable black vegan organic cotton cord. This means that it can be worn as a choker, long layering necklace, or anything in between! Like all my work, It is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, environmentally-friendly methods and cruelty-free materials!

💎 PINK OPAL LORE:
The word ‘opal’ derives from the Sanskrit ‘upala’ and the Latin ‘opalus’ meaning “precious stone.” The Romans considered the opal a stone of love, compassion, and hope. According to Australian legend, the stars are governed by a huge opal that also controls gold and acts as a guide to profound human love.
Pink opal vibrates at a more gentle frequency and this enhances its calming and soothing effect on the emotional body. It is well suited for very sensitive people, loving people, and people who are in need of healing the wounds of the heart and working with the heart chakra. Pink opal clears and calms the heart and brings a sense of love, peace, and tranquility to one’s aura. It can be used or worn to keep one’s connection to the angelic realms open and clear. Pink opal is a lovely stone for healing the emotions, especially those connected with subconsciously held pain.
Pink opals are also associated with past lives and the world of dreams. They have often been used to stop nightmares. It is said that meditating and sleeping with pink opals help one resolve any painful remembrances, allowing a gentle and loving compassion for one’s self.
