    These two opals are being set for my wedding. The white gold one is for me, and the yellow gold is a gift for my best friend who happens to have a thing for dragons. Both are 18K, and are being made by a wonderful custom jeweller, Pawel. Sorry for the blurry photo on the yellow gold one - it''s the best I have at the moment. The pieces are not quite finished yet - there remains some polishing on the white one and neither stone is set in. The opals really are much nicer than they appear in the photos as well.

    Thank you very much for the nice comments Sharon and Movie-zombie. I forgot to mention that both pieces are pendants. The white gold one will have an attached chain, and the yellow gold one will have a chain that goes through the top of the leg, for lack of better wording. Now that the pics are posted, I see my grubby finger prints all over the white one.
