Yogesh Kakkar is a Delhi based artisan who makes white opal pendants and other jewelry items. It has been a family business for him. His father settled in New Delhi after India's Independence in 1947. Our ancestors were in this profession. My father learned from his father and so on, he says. Yogesh credits himself for expanding his families business. Besides the opal pendant he makes all sorts of jewelry items with or without semi-precious stones. He says it can take over a day to make one pendant. He lives with his wife and two school going daughters.

Bought this penant as a gift with matching earrings. Very nice.Read More
Very lovely necklace ( I also purchased the matching earrings ).Read More
I love the pendant and chain. My only problem is the catch, for me at least, it is difficult to open. But again, that might be my lack of manual dexterity. The pendant and chain are classically beautiful and well worth the price.Read More
I love everything I have ordered on Overstock until this item. It is very lightweight, "liquid" silver long beads strung on a string, and the opal looks glued on. It came in a tiny ziplock bag- no jewelry box, and no description of the craftsman from India, like one of the other reviewers said would be included. That was actually a selling point for me, because I wanted the recipient to see that it was made with love. This was for my mother-in-law for Christmas, since she loves opals and it is her birthstone, but I like my mother-in-law and am embarressed to give it to her. I guess I will keep it because I don't want the hassal of returning it. Thumbs down on this one. I gave it two stars because it is a genuine opal for a good price.Read More
I purchased this pendant as a gift for my cousin who's birthstone is opal. She loved it and put it on immediately. I would definately purchase this item again for myself next time.Read More
Ordered this necklace for my daughter's birthday in January. Gave her the earrings that match for Christmas. I am so very pleased with this jewelry. I have ordered several of Mr. Kakkar's pieces and they are crafted beautifully and fairly priced. I have yet to be disappointed in this jewelry and I know my daughter will be thrilled when I give her the necklace when we go to California. It is so dainty and will be wonderful with the matching earrings. Thank you for a beautiful product.Read More
The pendant matched perfectly with a pair of earrings purchased elsewhere. A truly elegant piece that belies the inexpensive price tag.Read More
I enjoy purchasing the items handcrafted from artisans in other countries and especially enjoy learning a little bit about them by Overstock's brief history/bio of the specific artisan. This opal necklace is very dainty and beautiful to wear dressy or w/ jeans. I love the liquid silver necklace that moves with you. The opulence and color from the white opal is very pretty; not flashy to make it look fake. It looks a lot like Native American made jewelry in some ways. I would recommend all artisan jewelry to buyers, and this piece also. It is so pretty; you might want to wear it everyday!Read More
My sister loved this and the matching earrings. Lovely!Read More
