Storyteller Memorial Pendant - Opal | Silver with Gold

 



say hello |
Tucked beneath a beautiful, high quality rosecut natural welo opal are your loved one's ashes (or other materials by special request). These opals have excellent flash and colour, reminiscent of the northern lights dancing against the cosmos. Set in fine & sterling silver, your opal memorial pendant is finished with a solid 10k gold ring bail in your choice of yellow or rose gold, and the back can be engraved with an initial or symbol (larger stones can accommodate a bit more - just ask!).

These opals are translucent and show their fire when light hits them at different angles, which means your inclusions are likely visible through them, but please be aware that while most ashes will be seen clearly, delicately textured cremation ashes can be difficult to identify through coloured stones. These pendants will be created with the opal in the most vertical position - you can expect them to be set in the positions shown in the photos.

The selection of opals that are currently available are shown in two different photos at slightly different angles, against a charcoal background using natural light to help show their individual flashes. Please be aware that some of these opals are quite small, and for reference the main example photo is stone #16. When looking at measurements, please note that 10mm = 1 cm, and 12.7mm = 1 inch. Approximate measurements of each opal are:
