Cantera Opal Sterling Silver Statement Ring
Flashy Mexican Cantera Fire Opal set in fancy sterling silver bezel and edged with sterling silver bead wire. This beautiful opal measures about 3/4" by 1/2" or 20mm by 13mm (unset). The band is 2mm sterling silver bead wire. This ring is a size 8 but can be stretched to a 8.5. I also have a large collection of unset Cantera Opals if you would like to choose your own special one!
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. 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.
The last photo is of opal alternatives if you would like to create your own custom ring. Prices on these opals varies, so convo me to inquire if one of these catches your eye.
This ring will arrive in a beautiful gift box with a free polishing cloth. Like all my jewelry, it comes with a lifetime warranty. If it should ever need a repair, just send it to me and I will fix it and return it to you at no charge.
