This is a beautiful Ethiopian opal and 18k solid gold pendant. The gemstone is known as crystal opal which is pure opal material with no host rock. It displays mainly light magenta, greens, and some blues.
The gold work is simple yet elegant with a single row of tiny gold balls around the bezel. I have added a cross bar to the design that is reminiscent of an old sailing ship’s anchor. The bale has some extra detail with a row of gold balls around the circumference.
It is a small-to-medium-sized pendant that is approximately 1/2” wide and a hair over 1” tall (including the bale). See photo with the older U.S. silver dime for size and scale.
