Ethiopian Opal Ring - 6 x 8 mm Oval Opal in Crown Setting
Fiery genuine Ethiopian opal set in a lovely sterling crown filigree setting which shows the opal in all it's beauty. The untreated opal is 6x8 mm and weighs approximately .87 carat weight. The opal is set firmly on an interrupted sterling band that tapers to a narrower width at the back. The stone sits down on your finger so is low profile and well protected by the prongs so there is less chance of scratching your opal if you bump your ring into something. This genuine opal is a solid natural Ethiopian opal with lovely of fire, not a doublet or triplet. I have 5 of these beautiful opals in stock. Photo was taken without the stone being set so I can make each ring to the specific size the customer orders
Ethiopian opals have both beauty and strength, a rare combination in opals. Cut with a higher dome than typical opal cabochons, these non-treated stones exhibit a high-quality play of color and vivid translucence. Ethopian opals, come from volcanic deposits and are more rare than Australian opals and are less prone to cracking. Although I never recommend dropping your jewelry on a concrete floor, this opal will give many years of war with slightly less care than Australian opals.
This is a great October birthstone ring and could be an alternative engagement ring if worn gently.
