Overview & Details

Jay King Ethiopian Opal Bead 18-1/2" Sterling Silver Necklace
From deep in the heart of Ethiopia comes a pretty, pale opal that brings a touch of casual elegance to tailored tops and billowy blouses. Strung in a classic, graduated silhouette, these neutral-colored beads lend a chic, artistic vibe to all your wardrobe favorites.

Design Information

  • Necklace has rondelle-shaped opal beads strung in slightly graduated profile 

Good to Know

  • A portion of the stringing material on this necklace is purposely exposed to provide flexibility and strength, to allow the beads to move freely, and to let you coil the necklace for storage. Stringing the piece too tightly could result in damage to the cording or the beads.

  • This piece is strung with Soft Flex — a flexible beading wire that helps improve the strength, durability and longevity of the jewelry design.


  • Due to the composition and natural properties of mined gemstones, the product image may show slight differences to the actual stone in color saturation, tone, hue or other gemstone characteristics such as phenomena, color banding and color matrix.


  • Gemstones and pearls are sometimes treated to enhance their natural beauty. To learn more and find out about care instructions see details.

  • Absolutley beautiful! Wow

    I purchased the less expensive opal necklace a few years ago and it was ok but this necklace took my breath away. When I opened the box and looked at the strand of opals for the first time i couldnt stop looking at it. In the Presentation the show host stated every bead had color/fire and it is absolutely the truth. Every single bead has flashes of color and the necklace actually sparkles/ glistens in the light. I have a friend that's a retired jeweler and he was staring at my neck the 1st time he saw the necklace so I asked him what are you looking at? He said your necklace is glistening in the sunlight and he has never made a comment on any piece of jewelry I own in the 18 years I have known him. He had been a jeweler so long he wasn't impressed by any gemstones or pieces of jewelry for a long time. Thank you, Thank you Jay King and HSN for making this available to us. I now have a birthstone necklace I am so proud to wear.

  • Oh My Gosh!!

    This is one of those rare times when I have opened a box for the first time and literally let out a little gasp. My new Opal Necklace is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Seriously! While it made me a bit nervous to spend so much on one piece of jewelry, it has been my dream to find the perfect Opal bead strand, and my dream has come true. Of course I don't know if the opals in all the necklaces are of this same high quality, but all I can say is that the ones I received are beyond gorgeous .... I'd call them positively magical. Okay, well, off to stare at my Opals again for a while :)

  • Very nice but had to return

    I adore Jay King jewelry and I have a ton of it. I had been debating for some time about ordering the Ethiopian Opal necklace. So finally I did order it although it was very expensive. I am returning it. It is very beautiful, that is for sure. It would have been my preference to have it pearl tied in that there would be a tie between each stone as I felt there was the potential for that cord to break. And for that much money I would have preferred a lobster claw closure instead of the hook. None of this may be a problem for anyone but since I had other preferences about such a quality necklace I did return it. It was gorgeous, though.

  • Just O.K.

    I've been kicking myself for returning Jay's Ethiopian Opal necklace #550-744 that I ordered in July. It was beautiful, with white opals full of color and fire. I especially loved the pinks that flashed...Unfortunately, I had to return it due to an unexpected substantial financial expense. I left a "glowing" review on that one - please read it.... Now to the present....I decided that I just had to have one of his Ethiopian Opal necklaces no matter what, so I ordered again after his August 25th show. Well, when I received this new necklace, the difference was like "night & day" - the opals had a yellow cast with very few white opals mixed in, colors were not as vibrant, plus I just didn't see as many colors, especially pinks or the great flashes of fire that I saw in the previous one.....I'm just sick that I didn't keep the first one from July....Now I'm sure there will be lots of 5 star reviews, but after seeing the one in July in person, I just can't give it on this one...
