An Australian opal pendant. Its artisan style triangular frame made from an international coin. A great design for both men and women by Chris Copeland. Unique and entirely hand-crafted using both laser welding and traditional techniques.
Firstly, Chris combs our inventory for unique precious and semi-precious stones. Next, he’s constantly finding new ways to combine upcycled traditional and non-traditional materials. And, voila, this pendant is born. Combining a precious Australian opal in a sterling silver bezel setting with a repurposed international coin. As a result, the pendant conveys a modern style with timeless artisan quality.
Showcasing October’s birthstone makes this a great October birthday gift. Like most precious opals, this one is cut and polished to a cabochon shape (smooth dome top). Highlighting its play of colors in the most effective way.
A millennial designer growing up in the jewelry business, Chris’ sensibilities include an appreciation for both fine jewelry and sustainable practices. And, this Australian opal pendant reflects both worlds.
