    I bought this necklace recently, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I love the colour of the opals, from the back you can see they are not doublets. I could do with some help with identifying what type of opals they are. The butterfly eyes are rubies the gold is 9ct. I think this butterfly started life as a brooch. It is marked and I think it is a Sheffield mark and I think it was made around the 1900s, I could be wrong. I'm currently in the U.K. And I haven't my loupe and I'm blind as a bat without it, lol.

    Many thanks for looking.

      Was just thinking how well your nail polish went with the gorgeous butterfly's bluer opals. Where do you find your amazing treasures? Gillian is Green!

      Thanks Gillian, I had my nails done today, I have to admit they certainly look good with the opals, lol.

      Hi Jean....almost missed this gorgeous post.......it is stunning!!!
      I haven't posted anything for a while either as we have sold our house and are in the process of buying another in a different area of Tasmania. So, have been busy packing up the whole collection .......an enormous amount of objects!!! Have not even been out looking for goodies either......but am trying to stay up to date with CW postings. At least packing the actual household items won't be so bad....or I hope not at least lol!!!

      Thank you kyra and katherinescollections, I really appreciate the comment. The colour of my nails are definitely a repeat, I really do like them and they do make a great match with the opals. :-)))

      Oh your moving Judy, I wish you all the very best of luck on your new move, exciting times. I know the feeling of moving I've done it serveral times, it's hard work, I don't envy you, hopefully it will be worth it and you can get back to posting here on CW.
