Description

Australian opal and sugilite inlay ring in 14 karat gold accented by amethyst and diamonds. A beautiful cushion cut 2.5 carat amethyst sits on top of this unique handmade opal and sugilite inlay ring. The amethyst as well as the opal and sugilite inlay sections are surrounded by 40 dazzling VS clarity G color diamonds totaling .40 carats. The purple amethyst harmonizes nicely with the 3 pieces of purple gem grade sugilite precisely inlaid down each side of the ring. Two pieces of inlaid Australian opal on each side provide an extra splash of color, flashing red, yellow, green, blue, orange and purple from the opal. The opal and sugilite inlay ring measures 10mm wide at the top and is a size 6 ¾. This Australian opal and sugilite inlay ring design is available in other ring sizes, color combinations or white gold by special order. Special orders generally take from 4 to 6 weeks. This ring would make a nice handmade wedding ring or engagement ring!

Amethyst boasts the color of royalty, a rich violet-purple and is the most highly prized variety of quartz. Amethyst is cleansing, both physically and psychologically. It helps promote internal balance, harmony and stability. Amethyst also helps sharpen the conscious mind and enhances one’s mental powers. It is used to improve memory and keeps thoughts in line with life goals. Amethyst is the stone of pure, true, emotional love.


Sugilite is named for the Japanese geologist who discovered the first specimens in 1944, Ken-ichi Sugi. The location of the first discovery was the Iwagi Islet in Southwestern Japan. The original Japanese sugilite samples were just tiny, yellow crystals with no gem value. In 1975, the only known deposit of gem grade sugilite was found in the Wessel Mine in the Kalahari Desert near Hotazel in Kuruman, Republic of South Africa. At first it was thought to be a very small sugilite deposit, but later found to be a commercial sized deposit estimated to contain as much as ten to twenty tons located 3,200 feet below the surface. Sugilite commands a high price for an opaque gem material, due in part to the difficulty of removing it from such a great depth.

Sugilite often contains black matrix, reddish brown or yellowish blotches. Some of the lesser grades have very light purple to white areas. Opaque bright purple stones with little matrixing or blotches are the highly valued. While almost all sugilite is opaque, a very small percentage, perhaps 1/10 of 1% is translucent. Due to its rarity and mesmerizing beauty, this gem grade commands the highest prices. At its peak, stones of this quality climbed to as high as $1000 per carat. Sugilite ranges between 6 -7.5 on the Moh's scale of hardness.

Sugilite is also known under the trade names of "Royal Lavulite" and "Royal Azel".

Metaphysical & Healing Properties
It is thought that sugilite strengthens the heart and promotes physical healing as well as reducing stress by balancing the mind, body and spirit. Sugilite seems to protect against and dissipate anger and other negative energies by encouraging peace of mind, a general feeling of well being and spiritual love.
