Opal Auctions is a wonderful place to buy Jewelry online as manufactures can delivery jewellery direct from the factory to you. These pendants offer wide choice of colours and designs as most triplets are cut either standard oval shape or cut freeform shape.
Calibrated sizes like 8x6 mm or 12x10mm can be set in gold castings in 18k or 9k gold and this makes the pendant more economical and less expensive than manmade pendants. Freeform triplets are mostly set in 9k handmade bezel set as the gold is easier to bend around the edges and only few are set with claws.
Opal rough is now expensive per ounce and the jewelry manufacturer must slice the opal rough in thin bars to make triplets. As this is now expensive, the factory has been making more freeform shapes as to not waste the valuable opal.
It is ok to wear this opal pendant while showering as the manufacturing process makes the triplet opal seal with strong bond glue so water is no problem with these pendants. Enjoy wearing your triplet gold opal pendant as everyday wear
