An Ethiopian opal gemstone is set into this oxidized organic hand forged sterling silver and fine silver setting on this delicate floral sterling silver band for a stacking ring or a romantic gift. The Ethiopian opal is set into an organic hand forged sterling and fine silver setting. The band has stylized plants and flowers in a very intricate pattern. The floral motif resembles a paisley fern plant growing all over the surface of the ring, thus it is a great gift for an avid gardener in your life. Opal is the birthstone for October.

The ring is available in 2 different finishes. One finish is the regular sterling silver color (not pictured). The other finish has been oxidized to a very dark grey or black color (pictured). Both finishes look very good with opals.

SIZE
band width 3.4mm
stone size - varies between 4 and 5 mm

Please allow 2-3 weeks for construction of this ring before being shipped.

The actual ring pictured above has been sold. It's opal was 4.1 mm and the setting was 4.8 mm. A made to order ring would have a similar stone. The stones I have available to make a similar ring are around 4 to 5 mm in size. Each ring will have similar characteristics, but being hand made they will not be identical to the one pictured. Since these cabochons come in varying sizes and fire and color they will be similar, but not identical. I can do any size, from a US size 3 to a US size 13, in both half sizes and quarter sizes. If the size you want is not listed or "out of stock", make a note to seller or Convo me what size you want. I can add your size to the listing for you to purchase or create a special listing. After you purchase the listing in your size I will start work on your ring.

RING SIZES
To determine the size for your new ring there are several things to consider.
Your ring size will vary due to hydration, time of day, time of year and even the width of the ring itself. So a ring that fits at noon in the summer after a hard workout may be too large in the winter when you go to bed. Even the width of the ring will make a difference in the size you want to wear.
Some rings cannot be resized easily or at all due to the decorative patterns or stones used. It is best to get your correct ring size the first time.
***Do not use an online ring sizer or paper strip. These are unreliable and will not help you determine an accurate ring size***

Determine your ring size by following the steps below:

1. Visit at least two jewelery stores, preferably at different times of the day.
You may need to visit more than two, but the goal is to find two jewelers who both agree on your size. Many jewelry shops have a ring mandrel they measure rings on. It is important that the ring size mandrel being used is accurate. These can be off as much as ¾ of a size and are usually off about 1/8 of a size. My ring mandrels are not accurate as marked from the manufacturer so I measure the actual size by measuring the inside diameter of the ring itself using millimeter calipers. You can also try on metal or plastic finger gauge rings in set sizes, but these can be off slightly also. You can also ask them to use a “caliper” or “micrometer” to measure. Probably the most accurate measurement to provide to your jeweler is the inside diameter of the ring in millimeters. If you have an existing ring in the same width and fit as the one you are planning to buy and it is perfectly round, ask the jewelers to measure the inside diameter of this ring. That way you will know exactly what size to order your new ring in.
2. Determine The Ring Width You Want.
The ring size that is comfortable on your finger can vary depending on the width of the ring. It would be best to try on rings in the width of the ring you want to buy to get the most accurate measurement. A wider ring may need to be up to a half or full size larger than a very narrow ring to feel comfortable on your finger. Most plastic ring gauges come only up to 3.5mm wide. If you purchase a ring 8mm wide, your ring size will probably increase by a quarter size from the ring gauge that fit you best.

How should your ring fit?
The best fitting ring is the one you don’t know is there unless you see it.
But depending on several factors there will be days or seasons when rings are too tight, and days or seasons when they’re a little loose. Your fingers fluctuate in size during the day due to temperature, humidity, diet, etc. The time of year can also contribute to the ring not fitting comfortably. You may notice it feeling tighter in summer months and looser in winter months. In the winter, try and keep your hands warm while sizing to ensure it will fit in the summer. Even so it is better to have a ring that is loose in the winter rather than one you cannot remove in the summer.
The best fit is when a ring fits easily over your knuckle. You should be able to get it on without struggle and then have a slight pull at the knuckle when removing it. You may need to twist the ring 1-2 times to get it off. Proper sizing is a personal preference.

Some other tips on getting the best size ring for your finger:
Your finger shape can determine the size you want also. Some fingers are largest near your palm and gradually taper without a large knuckle. In this case the ring should fit snugly at the base of the finger without causing bulges or a permanent indentation. You should be able to push the ring up from the underside of your finger, and see a small space between the ring and the top of the finger as this gives your finger some breathing room.
If your knuckles are large you need the size of the ring to fit comfortably over the knuckle without being too large for the base of the finger. If there is a large size difference between the knuckle and base of the finger, the ring tends to spin and turn on the hand, especially in single stone rings which are often top heavy. You need to decide how easy you want it to slip over your knuckle.

To determine the size for your ring there are several things to consider. Your ring size will vary due to hydration, time of day, time of year and even the width of the ring itself. You should visit enough jewelry stores to find two jewelers who agree on your size as the mandrels used are often inaccurate. They can be off as much as ¾ of a size and are usually off around 1/8 of a size. I measure the actual ring size by measuring the inside diameter of the ring. The ring size's comfort depends on the ring's width, therefore try on rings in the same width of the ring you are buying for an accurate measurement. A wide ring may need to be a full size larger than a narrow ring to feel comfortable.
***Do not use paper tools off the internet.
Copper and brass turn some people's fingers green or black. This is not harmful. It is a reaction between your personal skin chemistry and the metal. It happens mostly with copper or copper alloys, but some people have this reaction with other metals. Other people, like me, have a chemistry which removes the oxidation from copper and turns oxidized copper rings back to the pinker unoxidized copper look.
To see if this may happen to you before you order a copper or brass ring, you could just wrap a bare copper wire around your finger for a day or two. It usually happens fairly quickly. Again it is just a discoloration of the skin and is not harmful. It is different than an allergic reaction.
