We are completely in awe of this 15ct Gold Austro-Hungarian day & night Opal Diamond drop necklace! This magnificent piece is grand and brimming with splendour, typical of Austro-Hungarian jewels, and you can revel in the fact that no one will be wearing a piece quite like this around their neck.
The Opals are quite incredible, the smooth cabochon domes behold a decadent display of electric purples, moss greens and flashes of bright yellow. The Diamonds have been carefully arranged in a pretty fashion, complementing the Opals in all the right ways! We love everything about this rare beauty.

EXCELLENT. This Austro-Hungarian day & night Opal Diamond drop necklace is in excellent condition, with each of the gemstones are securely set. The Opals are smooth, and have a stunning display of colours and tones. The Diamonds are bright and twinkling, and work wonders for the piece! The 15ct Gold chain is 17", so the Opal Diamond drop will nestle snugly against your chest. Other than some subtle wear to the 15ct Gold on the back of the pendant, there is little worth mentioning, so this piece is sure to bring you many years worth of joy!
