This charming antique Opal stick pin is an ideal accessory for any occasion, be it a birthday, a wedding, or you simply want to look your best!
The pin features a fine 0.61ct natural Opal and set in 15ct Rose Gold, and has a beautiful barley twist detail.
The Opal is held in a smooth bezel setting and has the most gorgeous play of colour! It has a white base colour but is not the washed out pale white you see so often in modern-day opal jewellery. Oh no! ...This Opal is fiery and colourful, with a strong flash of bright yellow from the centre, and electric blues and greens flowing through from all angles!
The humble stick pin is one of the most over-looked yet versatile pieces of antique jewellery you could own. Wear it on a cardigan or to secure a scarf. Wear it on a coat lapel of jacket. Or wear it with pride in the very centre of a tie!
This gorgeous piece of Opal jewellery could also be converted to a ring or pendant quite easily. Just get in touch if you'd like more information.
