Opals are picked for their directional fire colours when set in pendant so the jeweller will take this into account when making setting so as to show the brightest opal fire direction.
With other gemstone this is not important but opals are unique and each one is different and each opal has a different directional position that is best for it. That is why cabochon opals with fire colour all way around are made into rings and opal that flash sideways are set as bracelets
Freeform opal with directional fire are difficult to make into pendant but jeweller does face the fire in the brightest direction, there is also the side view flash .some pendants do not show fire colour looking straight at the person but on the side it has brilliant flash. Side flashes are also some of the brightest colours so do ask for a video if you cant see all aspects of this setting
So the jeweller does take lot effort to make these e black opal pendant settings and you can appreciate his creative design to match fire in these black opal pendants’
