Boulder Opal Ring in 14k Gold
Flashy and strikingly beautiful Boulder Opal from Australia set in 14k gold. This gorgeous stone is set in a 14k bezel, which was then wrapped in 14k wire and soldered onto 14k sheet. The ring shank is a double half round wire that I've opened to hold the stone is a graceful shape. The opal measures approximately 3/4" long by 3/8" wide or 20mm by 8mm. This is truly a one of a kind stone in a one of a kind ring. This ring is destined to become a family heirloom.
Opal rates at approximately 5.5-6.5 on the mohs scale which is a similar hardness to glass. It is, therefore very important that you treat your opal very carefully and avoid subjecting it to force or to any other activities that could potentially damage or break it.
I would advise you to remove any opal jewelry while showering, bathing or any strenuous activity (gardening, sports, etc.)
This ring will arrive in a beautiful gift box with a polishing cloth. Like all my jewelry, it comes with a lifetime warranty. If it ever needs a repair, just send it to me and I will fix it and return it to you at no charge.
