I spent a long time looking for an opal pendant to celebrate 30 years writing to my Scottish penfriend. Opal is her birthstone and there's some really awful opal stuff out there. This is as good as it looks on the site - tasteful, affordable, and modern.
This is a simply beautiful necklace. We purchased it as a Christmas gift for a family member, and it is just beautiful. There is a nice amount of "fire" to the opal and the workmanship is superior. It is a gorgeous necklace and well worth every penny paid.
I only wish the family member could wear silver earrings, as they would make a perfect compliment to the necklace.
I highly recommend this piece. I don't expect you will be disappointed.
I bought this for my Mom for Christmas, she really loves opals and has been very disappointed by milky ones in the past. The fieryness of this piece is lovely. The opal is larger than I hoped for at this price point. The only slight disappointment is the beaded chain - it did not look like this in the photo, and it makes the overall piece feel more casual. The quality of the chain and the rest of the silver in the piece seems good, though. A definate deal.
This is a very pretty necklace especially for this price for opals. The opal is very iridescent as shown in the picture and the silver is nicely polished and shiny. There seems to be some discrepancy is the length however. Mine measured closer to 20" rather than the 16" as stated. But that was not an issue for me. I preferred it longer. But anyone interested may be taking a chance on the actual length. The whole pendent measures approx 1/2" wide by 3/4" long, so not overpowering but large enough to be noticed. Very nice for formal or casual wear. Very happy with purchase. Would not be ashamed at all to give as a gift.
I just received my silver opal pendant necklace made by Yogesh Kakkar today and I love it! It is beautiful and it is beautifully made. But besides it being gorgeous, I feel so good that my purchase is helping this man in India to earn a living. I will tell all of my friends and family about Overstock/Worldstock jewelry! How wonderful to buy something so lovely that is also doing something good in the world. I will think of the jeweler everytime I wear my necklace and will feel happy that I helped him just a little bit.
This necklace exceeded my expectations,I am beyond happy with this purchase & would certainly recommend it. This piece is extremely well made,it looks like it would have cost 3 times the amount I paid via Overstock,I also purchased the matching earrings & it makes a STUNNING set. The necklace is a "liquid silver" with tiny round beads separating the "silver bars" it is a bright shiny silver & sturdy,lobster clasp is secure. The pendant is amazing & identical in size & appearence to the earrings, it is a small shiny well made tear drop with a BEAUTIFUL bezel set opal...this is a quality opal that shows different shades of pink,blue and silver when it hits the light. The only difference from the photos ( I found this to be a PLUS...Im not sure if other buyers will) The pendant (and earrings) are a lot smaller in size than the photograph makes it appear to be. The impression I got from the photo was that the pendant (+earrings) were large,but in reality it is approx. the size of a small/medium finger nail..it fits the necklace SO much better & it also makes this a piece that can be worn everyday,from casual to dressy whereas if it were to be the size I assumed it was going to be,it would only be suitable for formal occasions,I was very pleasantly surprised because now it can be wron with jeans & a T-Shirt , a work suit or a formal dress. Its gorgeous I'm SO happy with this purchase.
I am so glad I bought this necklace! I bought it as a stocking stuffer for my girlfreind and when it arrived, I could hardly believe how beautiful it was. You won't find a better looking piece for the price. I was so impressed that I went back and bought the matching earings. And my girlfreind was blown away by how beautiful the set is! Highly recommended!

Love opal jewelry & needed an opal pendant to match earrings I own - this opal pendant is whiter than my earrings which in contrast have a blue cast. Even though I believe this opal to be simulated NOT natural it is very pretty & of good quality. So deciding to keep it I ordered the matching earrings. They match perfectly the opal in the pendant & well set in sterling. The set is light in weight & a modest size though not tiny like some opal jewelry.
