    I'm not a jeweller, halas...

    So, this is really not a professional mounting! :-D

    I ordered an oval 925 silver mount only convenient for the opal length.

    The side gaps were filled with polymer clay, leaving open back, opal was pressed in, then I "dressed" the sides with spare little diamonds embeded in the clay. I removed all exceeding clay and carefully removed the opal before baking in oven at 110°C for 15 minutes.

    Once cold, the opal was replaced and secured with superglue applied with a toothpick at back.

    An antique paste removable spare bail from my "in case of" box was added and the hugie is now hanging from a rubber necklace at my neck :-)

      Judy, thanks! Thinking outside the square is the only way to fix things you don't have the possibility to do in conventional manner...
      Call it the "Mac Giver's way", lol!

      Mary, thank you, glad to bring you a trick for using the "quite not the exact fit" ;-)

      Jewels1900, you're too kind... it is only a "bricolage"! Thank you for your compliment!!!
