Rose Cut Pink Opal Ring - Size 6
Please select all options.
This handcrafted ring features a beautiful piece of rose cut Ethiopian Opal, with delicate flashes of colour that sparkle when the light hits the stone. Like all my work, this ring is a complete one of a kind, made using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, ethically sourced crystals and environmentally friendly methods.
I have created this ring in a size 6 (Australian size L 1/2).
Total Ring Face Length: 8mm approx.
Total Ring Face Width: 95mm approx.
*Please note I've priced this ring $20 lower than I usually do, as the Opal is a little more translucent than Ethiopian Opals I've worked with in the past. This means that the flashes in the Opal are quite subtle in indirect light but shine brightly when the stone is hit by direct light. I've tried to show this in the product photos and videos as much as possible.

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 center the mind and promote positive dreams. As well as this, Opals are a wonderful protection stone, shielding the wearer from other people's 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.
✨ Please note that natural Ethiopian Opals are created from volcanic activity (compared with Australian Opals that are formed in seabeds), and as such are referred to as “hydrophane opals.”. The word "hydrophane" comes from a Greek word that means "water-loving" as Ethiopian Opals are naturally adsorbent of water or liquids. If submerged in water for too long, these Opals can absorb the liquid like a sponge, temporarily losing their flashes of colour and turning them a more translucent pink. If this happens, simply remove your ring from the water source, and the Opal will go back to normal once it is completely dry. As with all jewellery set with natural gemstones, it's always recommended to remove all pieces whilst washing your hands, using hand sanitiser, cleaning with chemicals, bathing and undergoing strenuous activity.
