Double Australian Opal Adjustable Ring
Solid Australian Opals in 14k gold bezels with a hammered sterling silver adjustable band. The purple opal measures 9mm by 6mm and the blue opal is 9mm by 7mm. The bezels are 3mm wide. The sterling silver band is hammered for a subtle texture. This ring is a size 6.5 and can be opened up to a 7.5. These two opals are both solid opals, not doublets and are all natural.
Opals begin as a mixture of silicon dioxide and water. When fresh water (from rain or streams) runs down over sandstone, it picks up silica from the sandstone. This silica and water solution finds its way into cracks and crevices. When the water eventually evaporates, only the silica is left and 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 captures 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 or worn when doing strenuous activity. They should also be removed when showering or bathing because they can be affected by soaps, perfumes or chemicals.
