Australian Black Opal Onyx Earrings Pendant Made for Jessye Norman Opera Legend
An extraordinary pair of Black Opal earrings and pendant from the estate of opera legend Jessye Norman. Ms. Norman personally selected these magnificent Black Opals in Australia and the jewels were created especially for her. The black opals are spectacular with stunning blue and green fire and are of impressive size. They total approximately 5.3 Carat. The opals are set in Black Onyx and 14 Karat Yellow Gold in a Mid-Century Modern design. Ms. Norman has relinquished some of her jewels as she is no longer performing on the world stages. Many of these jewels have been worn at concerts and special appearances around the world. We feel so fortunate to have a wonderful selection of the dramatic and inspired jewels from Ms. Norman's extraordinary personal collection. These include pieces by Isabel Canovas, Van der Straeten, Kenneth Jay Lane, Vogue, Nina Ricci, Iradj Moini, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Ciner, Schiaparelli, Sonia Rykiel, and these extraordinary opals she collected herself in Australia. Her jewels reflect her dramatic and consumate vision of the world. The earrings are 30mm (1.2 inches) by 20mm. The opals are 9mm by 7.5mm. The pendant is 40mm (1.6 inches) by 29mm. The opal is 18mm by 13mm at the base. The opals are set in black onyx. The backs are 14K yellow gold. The earrings are clips. The earrings together weigh 16.5 grams. The pendant weighs 15 grams.
