Dendritic Opal Drop Earrings



Material: 18k yellow gold

Stone Type/Carat Weight: Dendritic Opal 51.18 cts.

Dimensions: 2 ” x 5/8”

This is a gorgeous pair of 18k yellow gold 10mm Crownwork® ball earrings on hooks with small Crownwork® finial capped dendritic opal drops. Made of 18k spring gold so its high tensile, easy to get on and off and helps the earring hang directly underneath the earlobe. The design inspiration for the finials are the Moores in Spain. It’s my translation of the columns in the Alluhumbra Palace. The design is a very old world form that fits jewelry perfectly and I use it in many configurations throughout the collection.

These dendritic opals are very unique and no drop will look exactly the same! The name comes from the dark inclusions that form stunning fern-like patterns across the stone’s surface. Any gemstone displays tree-like inclusion patterns, gemologists call it a “dendritic” variety of that stone. Dendritic opal is an earthy variety of the traditional birthstone the Opal for October babies. It is also the zodiac stone for Leos.

Crownwork® Friends

What is Crownwork®?

Crownwork® is the grid like pattern that features in all Ray Griffiths designs.

Crownwork®’s design roots are in Ray’s early training restoring Vintage European Suites of Jewelry. Aside from the distinctive design element and being the signature of Ray’s work, Crownwork® takes much of the weight from the jewelry, allowing Ray’s designs to retain visual heft yet remain light and easy to wear.
