This handcrafted sterling silver ring features a gorgeous genuine Australian Opal from the Coober Pedy mining district in South Australia. This stone is filled with incredible rainbow shimmers that flicker in the light! The size of the Opal is approximately 13mm x 7mm, and the ring has been made with a solid sterling silver twisted (2.5mm) ring band, a sterling silver backing and a fine silver serrated bezel setting. The ring has then been sanded 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 have created this ring in a size 7 1/4 (Australian size O), 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.
