To me this brooch is beautiful, I love the wonderful gold filigree work and the amazing colour display of the opals, (I think they are black opals) The opals are solid, not doublets, I believe these opals came from Lightening Ridge Australia. I hope kiwipaul can give me more information.
The big middle teardrop opal has a very large dome and as you can see all the opals are in a bezel cabochon setting. I've tried to take photos from different angles to get the colour of the opals showing through.
Many thanks for looking
