This listing is for a custom Opal ring, made to order especially for you with a gorgeous Opal from the Coober Pedy mining district in South Australia!
To order, simply select the number of your favourite stone from the drop-down menu, and enter your ring size in the text box above it. I will then make you your very own Gem & Tonik custom piece within three business days!
This ring design features a solid sterling silver 2.5mm twisted ring band, a thick, hand-sawed sterling silver backing, and a fine silver serrated bezel setting. The ring is then sanded, set with your favourite Opal, and polished to a high shine. Each piece is made entirely by hand, by me, 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 is different, each finished piece will be completely 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.
