Australian Opal Ring with 14k bezels and Sterling Silver Band,Crystal Opal Ring,Solid Opal Ring in Gold and Silver, OOAK Opal Statement Ring
Beautiful and flashy Australian Opal set in a 4mm wide 14k gold bezel on a sterling silver rectangular band. This one of a kind stone has lovely pink and purple tones that are mixed with blue and a touch of green. The opal measures 13mm long by 7mm wide. The sterling silver band is 2.5mm wide. This ring is a size 7 and can be stretched to a size 7.5. If either of these are not your size, I have a large collection of Australian opals for you to choose from to create a ring that will fit you perfectly.
Opals begin as a mixture of silicon dioxide and water. When fresh water (from rain or streams) runs down over sandstone, it picks up 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 one opal. Opals are all one of a kind and each captures their own beauty. Opals are about 5-6 on the Moh's scale of hardness which is about the same hardness as glass. Care should be taken so they are not scratched by accident. To protect their beauty, they should not be stored in direct sunlight and should also be removed when showering because they can be affected by soaps, detergents and other chemicals. Never put opals in an ultrasonic cleaner!
