margaret solow's pieces are timeless and elegant no matter what is happening in fashion at the moment. I love her simplicity and so happy she never strays from that.. Her pieces are cherished in Japan and all over the globe for their quality and unfailing beauty. Margaret makes everything by hand in her studio, her gems are never heated or subjected to chemical cleaning, they are in their natural state. Her pieces are strung one by one. This opal caught my eye from across the room, it's super firey with lots of color (not easy to see in a photo usually but you can even see it in this one!). This opal (measuring approx. 1cm in diameter) is faceted and set in a 14k gold bezel. This piece simply hangs on an 17" brown nylon cord and features a 14k gold lobster style clasp. The piece is as you see in photos - if you want to see more photos just email me.
