The opal in the ring has multicolored vibrant fire throughout and includes a wide range of colors. There is red, orange, green and purple in any possible combination - every opal is unique and has its own character, which comes to life under different lighting angles- it’s a very cheerful and beautiful stone that looks lovely in this vintage looking unique ring setting design.

▪️ Origin: natural, earth-mined, solid and sustainably sourced without artificial means;

▪️ Weight: approximately 0.7-0.9 ct;
▪️ Shape and Cut: oval faceted;
▪️Variations: cabochon oval cut opal can be used in this setting as well;

▪️Play Of Color: small flashes, pin fire or honeycomb pattern arranged colors with vibrant bright glowing lights appearing over the dark base tone- light colored base is indicative of poor quality of the opal even if the fire of the stone is bright.

▪️Matching Jewelry: currently matching pendant necklace is not included in the listings, but soon will be offered for sale to be a companion piece for this ring setting design;
▪️I put as much time, effort and care into creating each made to order piece of jewelry as is necessary to bring it to the achievable perfection. Almost every item is made only to order, unless indicated otherwise, and it usually takes 1-2 weeks to fulfill most orders;
▪️MAXIMUM processing time is set for 4 weeks due to occasional circumstances that are out of my control;
▪️I don’t have solid gold inventory, so I have to have extra time for ordering settings for ALL solid gold orders, so min processing time is 2 weeks for solid gold jewelry;
▪️I work entirely alone, so if I am not available for any reason such as health or other obligations, there’s nobody else who can replace me;
▪️I do accept URGENT ORDERS, which I can make in a short time, but you have to leave a note for me with the DEADLINE when you need your item to arrive; many items are eligible for expedited shipping;
▪️Your item will be shipped packaged in a beautiful velvet jewelry box, with a complimentary polishing cloth and a care instructions sheet included with every order;
▪️Your item will have a tag attached to it with my signature, date and your initials - take it off after you decided that it has no defects or problems that you would like to report;

▪️Default shipping method is USPS Priority Mail with an option to upgrade to Express mail;
🟣PAYMENT PLANS ARE WELCOME:
▪️I accept very flexible payment plans with minimum $100 per month payments. Payments are accepted via PayPal or by other methods that are convenient for you;
🟣MATERIALS and QUALITY STANDARD:
▪️The materials used in creating my jewelry are ONLY genuine top quality Ethiopian Welo Fire Opal of AAA quality grade or higher, high quality genuine moissanite of VVS or higher clarity and authentic precious metals: solid 925 Sterling silver, 10k or 14k yellow, rose and white gold.
▪️ All opals are NATURAL, EARTH MINED, SOLID AND ETHICALLY SOURCED;
I NEVER use doublets/triplets opals, artificially enhanced, lab created, or man made opals; authentication is available upon request;
▪️I prefer to use higher quality 925 sterling silver settings made with rhodium or white gold plated finish. This is a newer industry standard which allows to manufacture solid 925 sterling silver jewelry which is greatly resistant to tarnish with improved durability and appearance that features highly polished smooth surface and requires minimum maintenance care. I will continue to offer plain silver settings until they are completely sold out to be replaced with the high end silver settings that I purchase from very reliable professional supplier I’ve worked with for years.
▪️Although I have professional manufacturing partner, ALL OF MY DESIGNS ARE ORIGINAL and are the intellectual property of Kissed By Fire Jewelry, LLC;
▪️All solid gold, natural diamonds and moissanite are always tested for authenticity, and therefore I can GUARANTEE that all of the materials I use are 100% GENUINE, SAFE and HYPOALLERGENIC and come from SUSTAINABLE SOURCES;
▪️I use natural gemstones, so an occasional tiny inclusion, a scratch or a tool mark can occur sometimes, but it will be small and undetectable with naked eye;
▪️ White fire opals are MORE COLORFUL and have more natural brilliance than black opals if you are looking for a gift but are unfamiliar with the gemstone and it’s properties. Opt for a white opal as a safer choice that will effortlessly appeal to the vast majority of people.
💎People who have active lifestyles, progressive mindset and who want to make a difference in doing the right thing for the planet, should definitely consider buying moissanite jewelry: it will last forever as it is essentially a diamond, and its production doesn’t harm innocent people suffering from abuse mining diamonds, and is not polluting the Earth. It is called “the Earth’s most brilliant gem” for a reason, and it’s fire will take your breath away!
🟣GENERAL RETURN POLICY:
‼️YOU WILL ALWAYS RECEIVE A REFUND IF SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOUR ORDER.‼️

🟣OPAL PHOTO DISCLAIMER:
▪️Each Opal is very unique and special. Just like you are. That’s why we love them.
But this gemstone has certain features that make it very hard or impossible to objectively represent them via photos and videos with a degree of absolute precision. Please keep this in mind when you are looking through the available items and the listing images. The item you will receive is going to LOOK DIFFERENT from the listing photos and videos, but THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NORMAL and is to be expected from any natural opal due to its very nature and physical properties;
▪️Being the true chameleons, natural opals change their visible colors depending on the slightest changes in the lighting environment, camera angle, movement and everything else around them.
Even if the two opals have extremely similar features, they still will offer their own unique way of interacting with the light, which is what defines this gemstone and gives it its "personality". And just like people, opal’s personalities are very unique and are ALWAYS CHANGING depending upon their surroundings;
▪️The play of color in any natural opal results from a process of constant interaction between the light and the opal’s complex inner structure producing that unique combination of colors that we know as visible “fire”. It is not only unique to each individual opal, but is produced following the movement and the changes in the surrounding light - without the light you cannot see opal’s fire at all, because light is what creates the play of color. That’s why every opal’s appearance depends upon its continuous interaction with the light which produces different color combinations, determines the brightness, fire intensity etc., Even the very same opal is going to look different from its own photos depending on the lighting environment that exists around it at each specific moment;
▪️Even making a video does not provide a solution to this problem, because of the exposure related artifacts that either dampen all colors and the opal’s natural vibrancy or exaggerate these qualities in other cases. This happens whenever camera settings cannot readjust fast enough to capture fast changes in color brightness that inevitably result from continuous movement. This particularly affects white opals of the highest quality grade that look overexposed and colorless: they only show bright white color with little to no visible colors or glow - nothing can be more different from what you will see in real life;
▪️ There’s a choice of opal coloring in the menu that has a LINKED PHOTO attached to each of the two variations, and you should decide your selection based upon the photo linked to your menu option and NOT on the main image you see in the listing;
🟣PHOTO AND VIDEO GALLERY:
▪️A collection of video clips and photos of different opal jewelry: items that I have made or sold previously, new or current pieces that are not yet listed, design suggestions, ideas and examples for custom orders - get to know what the jewelry I make looks like and get inspired to create your own custom piece based on the existing designs created for my brand;
▪️Each item I create is always made with care, attention and love. I try to approach my work with a positive mindset of gratitude for this unique opportunity to bring something joyful and beautiful into other people's lives: it is exhilarating to know, that something I made would mean so much for another person who would wear that piece of jewelry as a symbol of a life changing event or as precious memory that they will carry with them through years!
▪️This is an amazing experience for me as well and I want you to know how much I appreciate your support of my work: my one-person-run business EXISTS ONLY THANKS TO YOUR FEEDBACK AND YOUR KIND REVIEWS!
❤️ PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO SUPPORT MY BUSINESS - I NEED YOUR FEEDBACK RIGHT NOW MORE THAN EVER ❤️

The main materials used in my jewelry are Ethiopian Welo opals of high quality grade (usually AAA), which are selected for each stone’s unique brilliance and coloring that correspond to the higher market value and offer an objectively better choice for a buyer compared to many other opal jewelry designers that opt for average quality opals to maintain the lower price advantage. I also use high quality moissanite which is a sustainable alternative to natural diamond and is the future of engagement and wedding jewelry. I am happy to help people discover its potential to satisfy their most intricate of desires when looking for the perfect engagement ring and leave diamonds to be the relic of the old times when cruelty was a social norm.
My shop has been consistently offering high quality handcrafted jewelry that are made with excellent craftsmanship, unique original designs and with ethically and sustainably sourced gemstones.
I VERIFY AUTHENTICITY of all the materials that I use for making my jewelry including testing precious metals to confirm the purity of 14k gold or solid 925 sterling silver. I select the best gemstones for Kissed By Fire jewelry collection always trying to find more unique and rare gems that have striking beauty and are genuine and natural gemstones that have not been enhanced, dyed or otherwise altered from their original state.
All verification, testing and quality grading is done by me using my knowledge of jewelry industry and gemology.
Average processing time is 1-2 weeks. Some exceptions include solid gold items needing to be reordered which adds a week, some unexpected delays with shipping etc.,
Each item is made only to order - there are no premanufactured pieces, which I can drop in a mailbox the same day -I put as much time, effort and care into creating each made to order piece of jewelry as is necessary to bring it to the achievable perfection, which you deserve.
I accept URGENT ORDERS for certain items that can be made very quickly, but you have to get a confirmation from me to make sure that I am able to fulfill your order by the required deadline.
Default shipping method is USPS Priority Mail with an option to upgrade to express.
Any natural opal is constantly changing its play of color and its entire appearance in response to the changes in its environment particularly shifts in the light angle, its intensity and brightness as well as the light source (natural light causes significant attenuation in opal’s color, while artificial light brings out the most of the hidden beauty within an opal). This is a natural property of this gemstone, and it is expected that the same opal will look completely different from the listing images if the surrounding light is different from the exact moment when the original photos were taken. Opal is a true chameleon and its we love it for this particular quality, but it can be misleading to a new opal owner. Please keep this in mind.

Natural opal requires extreme caution when using liquids, because it can absorb any liquid substance and it might cause permanent damage to the gemstone.
Keep your opal jewelry in a clean dark space, preferably in an air tight container when you are not wearing it.
Do not wear it to do manual work, play sports, swim, wash hands, exercise vigorously or when sweating. Take it off before showering, sleeping or doing anything strenuous.
Keep your opal jewelry away from sudden changes in temperature or from severe cold or hot weather.
Do not wash, submerge in liquid, clean using liquid jewelry or ultrasonic cleaners.
Most importantly: protect your opals from moisture at any cost, because this is the #1 contributing factor to opal jewelry damag
All opals I sell are exclusively Ethiopian Welo opals that are earth-mined, natural, solid and are free of invasive treatments that could significantly alter their appearance or reduce market value. I NEVER use doublets/triplets opals, artificially enhanced, lab created, or man made opals.
However, it is well known that Ethiopian opal does not occur in black variety, so it has to be understood at all times that heat application is needed to change the base tone to the dark black color while leaving the other properties and color appearance of an opal intact and not affected by heat. A heat treated gemstone is still considered NATURAL, and almost all colored gems are heat treated without any effect on their value or popularity.
Please keep in mind that I run the store on my own and have no other person to replace me with tasks that I am not able to handle at any point when I am working on other aspects of the business.
This creates a delay in replying to your messages, so please be understanding and patient and I will be very grateful for your kindness 🙏🏻
I would like to ask you to please contact me prior to leaving negative review, because I will be able to resolve your issue without the need for damaging my business which is struggling to keep afloat due to the limited time and resources that are at my disposal as a single shop owner.
Thank you for supporting my business and I am deeply grateful to each and every one of you ❤️🙏🏻
