Boulder Opal 14KY Sterling Pendant by Lori Braun #PT875 $530.00
Lori Braun's "one of a kinds" are BNOX favs. It is always fun to have others stop and comment on one's jewels, this happens over and over as Lori's creative Jewelry designs attract and command attention. This textural, two tone, boulder opal pendant is quite versatile. Additionally, it's medium scale makes it easy to wear.
This Boulder Opal appears to be a section of earth as seen from the space shuttle. Primarily, it swirls with earthen aqua blues and a few sneaky shadows of a muted raspberry pink. The bronze and nutmeg browns are the natural "mother stone or matrix" from which the opal was mined. Leaving the matrix intact not only creates interest and depth of color, but overall contrast as a finished cut stone. Boulder opal is painterly
The variety of opal colors and appearances from the Australian Dowdy Mine are surprisingly broad. Choosing a small selection of opals from Joanne and Kevin Dowdy is wildly challenging and takes me forever to whittle it down from the $10000000.00 that I'd prefer to spend.
