Australian Opal Gold Ring in 14k Gold
Gorgeous, flashy solid Australian Opal set in 14k gold, this ring is a size 6 and can be stretched to a size 6.5. This freeform shaped opal measures 11mm by 6mm. In its 14k gold setting, the top of the ring is 12mm x 8mm and the band is 2mm wide. This opal has amazing flashes of red, pink and blue that can't be conveyed in a photo so if you want to see its true vibrant self, send me a convo with your email so I can send you a video (I can't post a video here).
Opals begin as a mixture of silicon dioxide and water. When fresh water (from rain or streams) runs down over sandstone, it picks up traces of silica from the sandstone. This silica and water solution finds its way into cracks and crevices. When the water eventually evaporates, only the silica is left and an opal is created. The process, although seemingly simple, takes millions of years to create an opal. Opals are all one of a kind and each captures its own unique beauty. Opals are about 5-6 on the Moh's scale of hardness which is about the same hardness as glass so care should be taken so they are not scratched. To protect their beauty, they should not be stored in direct sunlight. They deserve to be treated gently so I recommend removing them when playing sports or any strenuous activities. They should also be removed when showering because they can be affected by perfumes, cleanser or other chemicals. With a little TLC, they will become a family heirloom!
