Photos 1, 3 and 4 are samples of unfinished rings made to size or either one can be made into a small pendant to give you an idea of what a finished piece will look like. Both stones F and G are not set so can be chosen to make your own necklace or finished in your ring size as shown. In both sample rings I have left a small amount of the sterling back showing to leave either plain or with a hand stamped design. I am happy to finish your stone setting with no surround showing or with additional stamping or texture. I have loads of stamps in southwest and other styles.
Monarch Opals aka Sterling opals are a cultured opal stone. Lab created opal is pretty but gets dull, and it just doesn't really capture the light refraction that real opals do. Monarch Opal is actually "cultured" opal and has nano particles of silica dioxide, just the same as natural opal that make them highly light refractive. The matrix is different in each slab created so some show more green or blue or lavender and even orange red making these very unique stones. Each takes about a year to grow. It is a bit more durable than opal so this material is ideal for rings and bracelets as detergents like hand soap won't hurt it. It has a hardness of 5.5 on the mohs scale.
