"Autumn Flora" Tree of Life Pendant Necklace
One of a kind 14k yellow gold filled tree of life necklace on a gorgeous genuine oval cut Australian Fire Opal.
Precious opal is gem silica most famed for it's "fire" or "color play". It's internal structure gives it the remarkable ability to diffract light, resulting in a rainbow array of colors which change when viewed from different angles. Most of the world's supply of opal comes from Australia.
This opal has a subtle but good amount of fire and color, showing flashes of reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and blues. Color play is especially visible around the tree design which dances within the fire of the stone. It makes me think of beautiful autumn flora colors dancing around the swaying tree.
This gorgeous stone is set on a hammered 14k yellow gold filled oval backing with spiral detail and mounted in a very secure woven 14k gold filled bezel which flows beautifully into the tree design on the front of the stone.
This item is one of a kind, you'll receive the exact necklace shown in the photos. Necklace was photographed in natural lighting (direct and diffused) to show the variances in fire and colors.
-Pendant measures 18.5mm (3/4") tall (not including the top loop which adds about 1/4"), 16mm (5/8") wide, and 5mm (3/16") deep.
-The stone is a genuine oval cut Australian Fire Opal, with subtle but good fire in an array of colors.
-All of the wire is 14k yellow gold filled, formed and shaped by hand.
-Chain is a 14k yellow gold filled 1.1mm width 18" length cable chain with a hammered 14k gold filled hook and loop clasp. It looks delicate but is quite strong.
Each of my Tree of Life necklaces are one of a kind, no two are ever the same. I absolutely love creating these and watching them take form. They always amaze and delight me with their unique personalities when they're completed.
If you would like a chain length other than 18" or if you have any questions about this necklace or sizing of the chain, please message me and I'll be happy to help!
Thank you so much for visiting my shop!
*Some Info About Gold Filled Jewelry*
Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the item's total weight, mechanically bonded to sterling silver or a base metal (such as jeweler's brass). Gold-filled items are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film as on plated jewelry which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled (I use 14kt for my pieces). Gold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or "dipped" products. It is tarnish resistant and does not tarnish as readily as silver. Many find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water.
