A beaded Ethiopian Fire Opal Necklace
The natural gemstone necklace features genuine Ethiopian Opal rondelle beads that have lots of colourful fire and flashes. At the centre of the necklace sits a trio of faceted Fire Opal balls and two more Fire Opal balls sit on either side of the necklace. At the ends of the necklace sits a row of gold filled beads, so that none of the Opals are hidden from view!
✨ Ethiopian Opals (unlike Australian Opals) must be kept away from moisture & water or they will soak it up and lose their colourful flashes - these Opals should ideally be kept in an airtight container when not being worn.

✨ Opals are said to encourage inner growth, inspire originality and boost creativity and help you to see your full potential.✨
✨ What is 14k Gold Fill?✨
Please do not confuse gold fill with gold plate! Gold filled has literally 100% more gold than gold plate. Gold filled (or rolled gold) comprises a solid layer of gold (14k) permanently bonded to a base metal. It is very hard wearing and under normal wear the gold will not peel or flake, unlike gold plate, and so it is a more economical alternative to pure gold.
