Cantera Opal with 14k Gold Bezel and sterling twig band, Mexican opal garden ring
One of a kind, beautiful Cantera Opal set in a 14k gold bezel and surrounded by cast sterling silver twigs. This opal has an amazing depth to it, almost like looking into a mineral pool. It measures 11mm by 9mm in its 14k bezel setting. The back of the stone setting is sterling silver. The leaves and twigs are cast from actual plants. The back of the band varies but is mainly 2mm wide.
This ring is a size 6.5 and cannot be resized. If this is not your size, I have a large collection of Cantera Opals for you to choose from to create a ring that fits you perfectly.
Cantera Fire Opals are fiery opals that the Mayans and Aztecs used in beautiful mosaics and jewelry and also 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.
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.
