This handcrafted Opal ring features a gorgeous genuine blue Opal from the Coober Pedy region of South Australia. This stone is particularly gorgeous, with incredible shimmers of colour that flicker in different light. The size of the Opal is approximately 12mm x 6mm. It has been made with a solid sterling silver 2.5mm twisted ring band, a sterling silver hand-sawed backing and a fine silver bezel setting. The ring is then sanded smooth and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods.
I created this ring in a size 8 1/4 (Australian size Q), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎 OPAL LORE:
The Roman historian, Pliny the Elder described the Opal as a precious stone containing the fire of a Garnet, the resplendent purple of the Amethyst, and the sea-green glory of the Emerald. In Ancient times Opal was considered to be the most magical and mysterious gemstone, able to heal the body, provide luck, and strengthen the mind.
Opals help to calm their wearers, easing stress and depression. They are helpful with issues with anxiety, restless thoughts and racing minds, as they centre the mind and promote positive dreams. As well as this, Opals are a wonderful protection stone, shielding the wearer from other peoples negative thoughts and energies. It is thought to be greatly beneficial when venturing into dangerous places.
Opals are also very seductive stones, associated with love, desire and passion.
