Australian Opal Ring With Diamonds, Gold Ring With Diamonds and Solid Opal, October Birthstone Ring, 14K Gold Friendship Ring
Flashy Australian Opal set in 14k gold with two 2mm brilliant white diamonds, this one of a kind ring is both gorgeous and understated- a future heirloom! This Australian Opal is a natural solid stone (not a doublet) and measures 10mm by 6mm. The 2mm white diamonds are brilliant cut and very bright, lending an additional sparkle to the opal. The 14k gold band is half round and 2mm wide. This ring is a size 6.5 and can be stretched to a size 7. If neither of those are your size, I have a large collection of beautiful opals for you to choose from to create a custom sized ring-just ask for a photo!
Opals begin as a mixture of silicon dioxide and water. When fresh water (from rain or streams) runs down over sandstone, it picks up trace amounts of silica from the sandstone. This silica and water solution sometimes finds its way into cracks and crevices. When most of the water evaporates, the silica remains. If the conditions are just right, 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 has its 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. To protect their beauty, they should not be stored in direct sunlight. They should also be removed when showering because they can be affected by chemicals and perfumes like those in soaps and shampoos. With normal care, they will last a lifetime!
