This is a pair of high quality red Gilson opals set in solid sterling silver with a "D" bezel and butterfly push backs.
Deep red, blue and green saturate the entire surface of these perfectly matched pair. These stones were cut from raw materials in our studio to show the mosaic structure pattern of the opal. A full spectrum of color moves freely in all parts of the stone.

The opals alone are 5 mm round in size.

Gilson Opal is a pure synthesised Opal with identical chemical, optical and physical properties to that of a naturally occurring opal. The growth process can take up to 18 months. Originally synthesised in Switzerland, Glison opal is now primarily synthesised in Japan. It differs from natural opal inasmuch as it is much more regular. Synthetic opal, though less desirable than organic opal in the eyes of lapidaries, is not to be confused with imitation opal, which, unlike pure synthetic opal, is tinctured with minerals not found in actual opal such as plastics and foils.

This is the top grade of red Gilson opal with a 90% organic silica base. It displays a very natural and alive fire. The high silica base makes this opal very strong, scratch resistant, and stable for daily wear. Special care is not needed to maintain Gilson opal unlike organically ocurring opal. The stones and silver can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth or warm water and soap.

Payment options

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Unfortunately I'm unable to accept custom orders or resizing requests at this time.
The best way to keep silver looking bright is to use a dry silver polishing cloth. This not only eliminates cleanup of wet polishing compounds but also ensures that your stone does not become damaged in the process. Never use ultrasonic cleaners on natural stones.
Unfortunately I cannot offer to resize rings. Close fitting sizes can usually be refit inexpensively with a local jeweler in your area.
Our orders are sent discrete and with enough protection to keep it safe in its journey without adding unnecessary costs to shipping.
We are happy to include a personalized note in your order although gift wrapping is not available.
Due to the nature of my competitive pricing structure, wholesale is not available although I'd be open to hearing your proposal.
Please see this chart to convert my listed sizes to other international measurements. http://www.ringsizes.co
Please make sure that the delivery address is correct before making a purchase.
If you noticed a mistake in your address before the package has been sent, please contact me immediately to have it changed. Changes cannot be made after this and I cannot be responsible for undelivered packages due to an incorrectly provided address.
Usually items which are undelivered will be returned to me although this is not always reliable or timely.
Items returned to me may be refunded minus shipping costs or resent to the correct address after shipping costs are repaid.
