ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 35CT OPAL CROSS PENDANT DIAMOND 18CT GOLD CIRCA 1900
This spellbinding Antique Victorian cross pendant is set with seven stunning natural Opals which are a kaleidoscope of rainbow colours shimmering and changing colours with the light. Each stone radiates blues, pinks, greens and an inner orange and together add up to an impressive total of approx. 35ct.
The largest Opal is approx. 6ct and sits in the centre. It exhibits a small hairline in the stone which is natural crazing which occurs in some Opals.
Twenty sparkling old European cut Diamonds also decorate the piece which are 0.08ct each and have exceptional colour and clarity, totalling to approx. 1.60ct.
This is an outstanding antique find and modelled in solid 18ct Yellow Gold. It would look magnificent on a Gold chain and boasts some of the finest natural Opals.
