It has a gold vermeil finish over the sterling and has no gold loss at all. The lab created Opals are full of fire and rainbow colors. They are set to form flowers at 3 stations. The rest is all prong set clear cubic zirconia's. Measures 7.5" long, weighs 18.2 grams and has a total of 101 stones in all. It has a nice slide clasp with 2 safety clasps on the side. A piece you would be proud to give as a gift or wear for yourself. Fabulous!
