Opal gemstones are generally known for their multiple colors and amazing luminescence. Pink opal, however, is monochrome with a soft pink shade and just a tinge of white.
Our gemologist team discovered this treasure at Groh & Ripp, our supplier in Idar Oberstein, Germany. Captivated by its uniqueness, we engaged their best gem cutters to transform the beautiful “rough” into stunning shapes for our jewels. The result was two new drop pendant forms that perfectly reflect the femininity of this gem.
Hardness 5.5 to 6 on Mohs scale (sapphire = 9, diamond = 10)
The Blossom Collection
Delicate pink opal was an ideal “highlight” gem for the softly colored Blossom Collection of Spring/Summer 21. The pendant and drop earrings became its outstanding pieces.
Opal is typically found in Australia and Ethiopia. However, our particular pink opal was discovered in Peru when an quake unexpectedly threw this treasure to the earth’s surface.
