This delicate pendant was inspired by the moon. The Ethiopian opal in the center features a stunning array of colors, like a trapped rainbow! The silver pendant is domed, so the opal is set in the sunken center of the pendant. The silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The raised points have been polished to shine, while the low points retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. The pendant measures 0.5" tall and 0.5" wide. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver.

You will not be receiving this exact pendant, but one made with the same design. No two will look exactly the same, as each pendant is hand-forged.

A few notes on caring for oxidized sterling silver: oxidized patina on sterling silver isn't particularly durable to long-term exposure to water (like bathing or swimming) or a lot of scrubbing, as friction is the way to polish silver to shine. Constant exposure to tasks such as hand washing, bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc., will slowly wear away the oxidized patina leaving a shiny silver finish. Cleaning sterling silver can also remove oxidized patina applied to the piece, so use caution when cleaning if there is desired oxidized patina.
