Silver mount for special opal

Opal in silver pendantThis opal has special memories and the owner polished it from rough.  The brief was to show the opal off to its best.  The back side has no special interest, but the sides and top show the opalescence.  Hence the minimalist use of claws.  The reflections from the silver enhance stone.

(The opal wasn’t completely set tight at this point, but was before delivery.)
