This listing is for a custom Opal ring, made to order especially for you with a gorgeous pear-shaped Opal from the Coober Pedy mining district in South Australia!
To order, simply choose your ring size from the drop-down menu. I will then make you your very own Gem & Tonik custom piece!
This ring design features a solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) band, a sterling silver backing, and a fine silver bezel setting. The ring is then sanded, set with a natural Coober Pedy Opal that measures approximately 10mm x 7mm (exactly the same size and with similar colour flashes as the ring in the photo), and polished to a high shine. Each piece is made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials and environmentally-friendly methods!
As this is a made to order item, please allow up to 3 business days for me to make it for you. Please note that the completed ring in the photo is a guide as to how each piece will look, but as each stone has slight differences, each finished piece will be unique!
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.
