Yellow opal is a silicate mineral that is commonly found across the world that is often used to symbolize emotional stability. These stones are a beautiful, milky yellow that plays well with the gold tones. 

Do you know the difference between gold-plating and gold fill? In plating, a base metal is electrochemically coated with a precious metal, such as gold. Plating is usually only 0.5-1 microns thick- which is only .0005-.001 of a millimeter thick! Gold fill pressure-bonds an actual layer of gold to the outside of a metal- usually higher quality jeweller's brass. It's 1/20th the thickness of the item, which means it can be anywhere from 5-100 microns thick! While gold-plating usually wears off pretty quickly- gold fill, when taken care of, can last decades!

TLDR: Gold-fill wire and findings (WAY better than gold plating), yellow opal gemstones, 37 - 40 cm (16-17")
