Cantera Opal Ring In 14k Gold with Sterling band
Beautiful and flashy Cantera Opal rings with 14k yellow gold bezels and sterling silver 3mm half round. These two pretty rings feature Cantera Opals which come from Mexico. The larger opal is 12mm x 9mm and the smaller one measures 9mm by 8mm. The 14k yellow gold bezel is 3mm wide and the back plate is sterling silver. The larger opal ring is a size 8 (can be stretched to an 8.5) and the smaller opal ring is a size 6 (can be stretched to a size 6.5). If either of these is not the size you are looking for, I have a large collection of opals for you to choose from to create a custom sized ring. Just convo me if you would like to see photos.
Cantera Fire Opals are fiery opals that the Mayans and Aztecs used in both beautiful mosaics and religious rituals. They called them “quetzalitzlipyollitli,” or the bird of paradise. They have an amazing depth with flashes of color from beneath the surface, like peeking into a hidden world. Mexican Fire Opals are found in mountainous areas where there are extinct volcanoes. Opal veins exist in cracks and crevices which the miners extract them from. Opal rates at about. 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. Avoid soaps, detergents or perfumes coming into contact with your opal. I also recommend to store your opal jewelry out of direct sunlight. These simple steps will help your opal last a long time!
