This Australian opal pendant is set in a modern triangular frame crafted from international coins. Suitable for both men and women, the unisex design is by Chris Copeland. The unique, custom pendant is entirely hand-crafted, using both laser welding and traditional techniques. Chris combs through our inventory of stones and materials, constantly find new ways to combine upcycled materials and non-traditional settings with unique precious and semi-precious stones for a modern style with timeless artisan quality. This Australian Opal Pendant combines a precious Australian opal with a frame crafted from repurposed international coins.
A perfect gift for those born in the month of October, the pendant showcases October’s birthstone. This piece also celebrates Australia — in particular the town of Coober Pedy in South Australia — as it is one of the world’s leading sources for opals. Like most precious opals, this one is cut and polished to a cabochon shape, to show its play of colors in the most effective way.
A millennial designer who grew up in the jewelry business, Chris’ sensibilities include an appreciation for both fine jewelry and sustainable practices.
