This stunning, unique pendant was most probably a custom design made in behalf of an opal connoisseur/client of the firm of David Webb. It features a large natural Lighting Ridge black opal having blue, green and orange floral pattern and broad flash play-of-fire. The stone measures 70.0 x 51.0 x 6.5 mm and was unmounted to verify the weight of approximately 190.0 carats. The bail is embellished with a a pretty Queensland boulder opal which measures 13.0 x 7.5 x 3.0mm. The large opal is encircled by 96 circular, marquise and pear-shaped diamonds, weighing a total of 7.18 carats. Reverse side fabricated with copious amounts of gold and textured with a hammered gold finish to the artistic azure work as well as the pendant bail. Platinum prong setting and yellow gold brooch fitting. Signed David Webb, 18K 900PT.DS45
