Opal Rings

This gorgeous opal pinkie ring is a doublet made from Australian opal from the Olympic fields. A doublet is created when opal (usually crystal opal, meaning you can see through it) is cut very thin and then permanently set onto a stronger thicker backing of black jade or onyx, or some other dark or black stone. This allows wonderful material that might normally be too thin to be used in jewelry. It is set in 18k gold and mounted on a freeform 14k gold fused gold shank. Size 2 1/2---R431568---$405

This is a very unusual black opal from the opal mining fields in Australia. It is very directional, which means that from some angles you will not see the blue green fire, and from others the fire is bright enough to be absolutely shocking. This feature can be fascinating, but it is not something that increases the value of an opal. Because of this it is much more affordable than you might think. This stone is approximately 4-5 carats in size and is set in 18k gold on a shank of reticulated sterling silver. The band then has 22k gold granulation on both sides and is patinated to a nice dark coloration to bring out the gold granules.

Set in 18k green gold with the shank of 14k white gold. Size 6. ----$518----#R510997.
