I matched the Opal inlay in this whale tail Pendant

This Opal inlay pendant was probably purchased in Alaska where the whale tails are popular.

Pendants can be vulnerable to having the inlays chipped or broken when the owner leans forward and the pendant swings forward and can strike something. Because Opal is brittle, it can break.

If it does break, we can match the Opal inlay and repair it for you!

In the larger image you can see that the inlay next to the new Opal inlay does have a minor crack in it which also may need to be replaced in the future.
