Gemstone: Opal

A very dramatic, sterling silver ring featuring a 8mm round, Ethiopian opal surrounded by 17, 2mm round, faceted, sapphires in shades of blue, pink, lavender, yellow and green. The setting has 8 leaves extending down from the stones, and the overall effect is reminiscent of a sunflower. This ring sits up 1/2" from the hand and I've applied a dark, antique finish to the sterling.

This ring is a size 7, but can be sized from 5-10, including half and quarter sizes. If you would like me to size this for you, please let me know your preference in the Note to Seller when checking out.

This opal is glorious, and quite a chameleon: depending upon the lighting and angle in which it's viewed it has flashes of pink, red, yellow, bright blue and a holographic green. It reminds me of rainbows suspended within a crystal ball. The sapphires are an exquisite and echo back the colors within the opal.It's hard to look at this piece and not feel a sense of joy.

I wish so much that I could take credit for the carving of this ring! My mentor worked in the jewelry industry for over 40 years, and besides acquiring an extraordinary knowledge base, he also amassed a considerable jewelry collection. He knew I occasionally worked with vintage pieces and he presented me with the original version of this ring saying, "I bet you can do something with this." We changed the setting from the original, had a mold made and have currently cast it in sterling silver. I know very little about the original except that in all likelihood it was made in the 1960s/70s. It's such a spectacular piece: truly a showstopper.

If you are interested in this piece in a different stone/ metal combination, please contact me. The possibilities are almost endless.

    I just used my pendulum for the 1st time and I had such an emotional connection with it, I started crying. This piece is so special to me! I bought this pendulum for a purpose, when seeking out a pendulum, this one stopped me in my tracks! I didn't see a price tag, I just saw a connection. I also received a thank you note with butterflies all over. Butterflies are my daughter's way of saying hi while in heaven. The beautiful pendulum board was packed in a beautiful velvet bag of it's own, as was the pendulum! I can't believe how amazing of a connection I have to this pendulum and I really love the Thank You note! You are most welcome! Blessed Be!

    With a mix up in this order, I discovered a shop that really puts the customer first. She responded right away with a shipping label for the return and when she learned I didn't have a printer and needed to go elsewhere to get the label. She sent the correct earrings with the label included before I returned the incorrect ones!

    The earrings have a beautiful grey cat's eye moonstone with wonderful silver work. These are a gift worth giving.
