The vibrance of Mexican fire opals is balanced by glistening diamonds in this Edwardian necklace. The versatile piece's length is adjustable so that it can convert from a choker necklace to a bracelet. These rare faceted opals, weighing a total of approximately 10.00 carats, display the signature bold tangerine orange hue for which this unique stone is known, achieved thanks to the presence of iron during their formation. These dazzling examples are bezel-set into elegant openwork platinum and 21K yellow gold.

Thought to bestow courage, stamina, willpower and energy, Mexican fire opals are singular among the world’s opals for their bright and almost uniform color. Revered since pre-historic times as symbols of ardent love, the gem was believed to have been created in the waters of life. The most beautiful of these rare gems are found in Mexico, and in the Pre-Columbian era, the Mayans and Aztecs incorporated them into their most prized artworks and figurines.
