Ethiopian Opal Necklace

Ethiopian Opal Necklace

An exceptional necklace featuring four strands of shimmering faceted Ethiopian blue opals finished with an antique menuki clasp. Menuki were functional works of art that adorned the swords of samurai. Exquisitely tooled in high-relief takazogan technique to express a sense of joyous movement, the dancing waves and shorebirds that grace our menuki clasp are celebrated subjects of traditional Japanese painting. In a land of many shores, the playful antics of these darting birds across a rolling sea were a source of delight.

Since 1861, Gump's has been a destination for jewelry that is distinctive and timeless. To ensure each piece is created to our exacting standards, our expert in-house jewelry team oversees every step of the production process. The result is a statement of pure elegance.
