    I agree with Katbran: I don't know in Denmark, but in France, about 200€ for only this gold setting, without pearl, is already not expensive! And if it is an artisan's creation, as it looks like,...

    Borders of stones are apparent: with a strong magnifying glass, it would be possible to see bonding of layers, in case of a doublet.

    I have broken drills too, even treated bits, in tahitian pearls. It's possible that even a hard nacre nucleus is suffisant to curve the drill through softer black nacre around, when the tool meets...

    At least one opal surface look grainy, It can be an indication that stones have been in water shortage: opals need moisture, like pearls. Dryness destroys them. So, a bath will be also the best for...

    I think there are not opals (gem), on the clasp, but opaline glass, used to look like real opal, but clasp is elegant.

    In France too, we have no rain, now, even in winter, and fires were terrible during last summer. Portugal was an apocalypse. What a pity to see how nature is damaged.
