SPECIAL JEWEL: Please be mindful, this piece of jewelry is very limited based on the small number of opals we were able to source and it is therefore irreplaceable. For this reason we strongly advise Express Shipping, which will require a signature upon delivery, assuring it arrives safely in your hands. 

 
The pendant is suspended from a 18" bar link chain. If you prefer a different length (between 16 and 24 inches) please reach out to us immediately after making your purchase. 

Inspired by our Talon Moon series, this piece is named after the goddess Hecate, represented in one of her best known symbols as the "Triple faced Goddess' and features small hawk talons formed into crescent moons, cradling a "full moon" moonstone.

Considered one of the ancient goddesses, (and in some tales), the only Titan allowed to retain her authority after the Olympians seized control, Hecate is a triple faced goddess associated with witchcraft, the Underworld, specters and the dead. She is also well known as the Goddess of crossroads, symbolically viewed as the liminal space between worlds. Because of these attributes, she has an ability to accept the strange and shadowy nature of people, making her a personal favorite of mine.  

A sterling bezel holds the opal so both the domed front and smooth back are viewed, allowing the stone to "breathe".  Entirely made in sterling silver, the piece is paired with our signature bar link chain, oxidized to our favorite shade of gloomy gray and polished to highlight the silver underneath, revealing all the amazing details of the claws. 

Details:

- Solid Sterling Silver 

- Approximately 18 mm tall 

- 36 mm wide 

- 11 mm opal cabochon 

Opals range significantly in color but you can expect your opal to be clear, white, or a light yellow / orange color. The flash of each stone varies and can include any/all colors of the rainbow. Please note: because our collection of stones is so limited, we are unable to accept any requests for specific stone colors

 


 

***Special opal care***

Opals are a soft stone. Opals are sensitive to heat and any extreme temperature changes, please be mindful of this and store your jewel appropriately when it is not being worn. Do not keep your opal in a very dry place. 

Only clean your opal with a soft damp cloth with very mild soap. Dry the opal off immediately after cleaning. Do not ever use chemical cleaners or clean your opal in an ultrasonic cleaner. 

As with all jewelry, we recommend putting it on last and taking it off first. Do not wear it when showering, swimming, working out, etc. Do not let it have contact with makeup, hairspray, perfume etc. 

 

***IMPORTANT***:

This jewel is handmade to order, just for you, with care and focus. Please allow approximately 4 weeks for creation before shipping.
