925 sterling silver Victorian ring made with a natural black fire opal faceted oval gemstone in mixed colors with some green and navy base tone, which add vibrancy to the fire colors by adding a slightly lighter background, so the opal looks cheerful and is very high quality grade stone.
The silver ring setting is plated with rhodium over sterling silver and has an added antique finish applied over the shiny plating layer to preserve the vintage style of the ring design, so you can have a stylish ring with protective rhodium plated finish too - it does not get in a way of creating the vintage look but without it being and looking old, which not everyone would enjoy as a true Victorian jewelry collector might by looking at an actual ring that was made during those days with reverence towards every detail.

The modern version of vintage is very forgiving and allows us to enjoy the style while also getting the modern advantages of new production techniques.
I am really in love with Victorian style, but it has to be done right, so the ring could show mild decorative oxidation applied to the filigree band design to highlight the intricate curves and bring out the quality of craftsmanship to view, so the setting looks absolutely beautiful and for handmade jewelry this is quite rare.

Many ambitious jewelers attempt to make the settings at home , but unfortunately the best representation of your idea, your creative design can be achieved through having the designs you created manufactured professionally, so I know that my ring is going to look flawless, and I don’t have to prove to myself that I want to make it myself since it is such a huge gap between what you can do at home and what can be achieved in the factory settings.

I also got lucky by finding the perfect manufacturer who share similar esthetics they put in their own jewelry, so it was easy to explain the idea and the next thing I know - the ring sample was at my door!

🔹Origin: earth mined, natural, solid, not enhanced, Ethiopian Welo Opal

🔹Shape and cut: oval faceted

🔹Dimensions: 9x7mm

🔹Weight: 0.8- 1.3 ct approximately

🔹Quality grade: AAA mostly all opals are of this quality grade; a few AAAA rare stones and many AA ( do not meet the quality standard for this shop); the stones are featuring mixed vibrant cheerful colors throughout with sparkling pattern

🔹Brightness: 5/5

🔹Base color: touch lighter leaning on green with dark navy; lighter base tone allows bright colors and of wider range;

🔹 Specific detail determining the separate listing: mixed colors, slightly green, brightly colored and intense, so very high grade opal with slightly lighter green base;

✅ THE SETTING:

🔹 Metal: Solid Sterling silver

🔹 Style: Victorian inspired semi mount 4 prong classic ring setting

🔹 Specific features: looks great with colored opals and black Opals - exclusive design only available at my shop. Authenticity of the silver is guaranteed. Made with great quality and craftsmanship in every detail.

🔹Finish: oxidized over white gold plating to add vintage antiqued look;

🔹 Now available with rhodium plated finish over 925 Sterling silver intended to prevent tarnishing; only a few settings are left in stock;
Reordering takes up to 3 months time.

🔹 This is my very first design produced for my own jewelry line by a professional large scale sterling silver jewelry manufacturer - my sterling silver settings supplier helping me create my own sterling silver Victorian/Celtic/ Boho jewelry line with strong Bali influences.
The best quality sterling silver I was able to find among hundreds of suppliers. Their quality of silver and the plated finish is outstanding.

Each Victorian ring listing with a black opal is unique and needs to represent a category of black opals which look very similar.
Every opal is one of a kind of course, but I would have gone crazy if I didn’t divide them in a few groups at least.

The ring will have a unique stone with it’s own personality and play of color that you won’t see in any other stone even though a few opals might be sold through the same listing having some common traits.

🟪UNDERSTANDING NATURAL OPAL:

▪️ Opal is very unique and colorful gemstone like no other. EVERY OPAL IS CHANGING COLORS CONTINUOUSLY IN RESPONSE TO THE LIGHT ANGLE OR INTENSITY.
This makes photographing them extremely difficult, so YOU MUST READ THIS to learn some typical properties of this gem and KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR OPAL JEWELRY AND HOW TO BEST CARE FOR IT.

________________________________________________
🟪NATURAL OPAL PHOTOGRAPHY ISSUES - A MUST READ ARTICLE FOR ALL:

▪️As much as they are beautiful natural opals are extremely difficult to represent objectively on photos and sometimes on video as well. This can result in a potential dissatisfaction on behalf of a customer because they might have different expectations from their purchase, because opals are such tricky chameleons.

▪️Please keep this in mind when you are looking through the available items, because the item you will receive WILL definitely look different from the listing photos, which is ABSOLUTELY NORMAL. Even if the two opals have the same quality and brightness - they still will offer their own unique way of interacting with the light, which is what defines the Opal and gives it its “personality”.
Most listings contain photos of a few very similar opals unless indicated otherwise. You will receive an opal that looks very very close to the ones pictured in the listing photos.

▪️Black opals are PREDOMINATELY DARK gemstones and won’t appear as bright as the listing photos due to their dark overall base tone, which makes the play of color appear and “come to life” ONLY in presence of a light source and during movement as the stone interacts with different light sources in various settings and at different angles.
This interaction produces a specific “picture” that is being seen on a still image, but it will continue to change as the light around the opal changes, so it is IMPOSSIBLE to show what a fire opal actually looks like, because it is a CONTINUING PROCESS and not any particular set of colors on a background.

▪️This process is responding to the INTENSITY OF LIGHT, and photos are ALWAYS TAKEN UNDER DIRECT LIGHT SOURCE. This particular aspect of opal photography causes A LOT OF CONFUSION AND DISAPPOINTMENT coming from those who are UNPREPARED TO VIEW THE SAME OPAL WITHOUT THE DIRECT LIGHT SOURCE. When seen under different light or at a different angle - the opal WILL LOOK ABSOLUTELY DIFFERENT FROM ITS OWN PHOTO, so please read as much information about this issue as you can find to avoid being disappointed with your purchase.

▪️Any natural opal will look much brighter under artificial light and much duller under the natural light. That’s (in part ) how you can tell that it is indeed a natural opal. A lab created opal will show no difference in the fire brightness
Opal is always changing its colors and never shows the exact same combination of colors with the same level of brightness, so expecting it to look like ANY PHOTO is simply unrealistic.
When an opal is seen in motion it looks entirely different almost every second following any minute changes in the angle of light or

▪️ Red colored fire in an opal will not turn a black opal into a garnet - it is a BLACK opal, so please be prepared that the beauty of this gemstone is going to be SUBTLE especially at first, but quite fascinating in its own very unique way.
And keep in mind to keep your expectations in check, so it is not going to turn your experience into an unpleasant one simply due to the natural characteristics of the opal itself, which makes it nearly impossible to represent it with the level of objectivity you can see in all other gemstones.

Thank you.

🟪UNDERSTANDING MOISSANITE AND ITS SPECIFIC QUALITIES:

▪️Moissanite is called “the Earths most brilliant gem”
I use high quality moissanite in my jewelry, and it is fully comparable to Charles and Colvard, NEO and other well known names.
I created my own moissanite brand Kissed By Fire Moissanite

🟪RETURN POLICY DETAILS AND CONDITIONS:

‼️YOU WILL ALWAYS RECEIVE A REFUND IF SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOUR ORDER.‼️

▪️However you should have a VALID REASON to request a refund, which needs to be clearly explained since your Jewelry was created especially for you. It cannot be taken apart into original components and the financial loss can only be reclaimed from getting another order with the same criteria.
Please try to understand this from my position, and approach returns with a sense of responsibility: handmade items are different from other purchases you make online, and my return policy simply reflects this distinction by setting conditions for what can and cannot be returned and why.

▪️Custom made items including the solid gold pieces are not returnable due to high cost of materials, earrings cannot be returned due to hygienic reasons; used, worn or damaged jewelry and pieces missing a signature tag are not eligible for a return due to the fact that only a buyer is responsible for the present condition and safety of their possessions, which include their previous purchase from my store.

‼️YOU CAN AND SHOULD CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED HELP WITH ANYTHING: I WILL NOT TURN YOU DOWN IF IT IS IN MY POWER TO ASSIST YOU, SO TAKE THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH SERIOUSLY, BUT IT DOES NOT APPLY TO ROUTINE KIND OF SITUATIONS WHEN YOU MIGHT NEED MY HELP ‼️

💟Each item I create is always made with care, attention and love. This started as a passion and not as a business, and I am really trying bring that passion into my work at every level and in every aspect.
I really appreciate the 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 think of this piece of jewelry as a symbol of a life changing moment or a precious memory that they will carry with them through years.
This is an amazing experience for me as well - another beautiful example of the interconnectedness of all things you in the Universe.

-Every order is fulfilled within the 4 weeks of processing time, but majority of orders are shipped within one week. I also ship NEXT DAY ORDERS - I am very flexible when it comes to processing time.

I DO NOT REPLY EVERY 24 HOURS DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS ADDRESSED HERE: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/912493473011/my-personal-situation-and-how-it-limits

I DO NOT REPLY EVERY 24 HOURS!

This information is not provided by me or given with my permission. I work only part time.

There are certain limitations that prevent me from working every day as I would like to. I have been suffering from chronic fatigue, which “steals” a lot of my time by making me unable to function and slows me down at every turn, so I am unable to respond to you right away. Whenever I get totally burnt out, I have to take a day off or two to recover and rest. I am the only person who runs every single aspect of this business w/o prior experience, so I am constantly trying to finish prior tasks and I am afraid that this might be mistaken for sign of horrible customer service...

CARE TIPS FOR THE JEWELRY I MAKE: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/126677434969/opal-jewelry-care-instructions

Opal jewelry is EXTREMELY FRAGILE and cannot come in touch with any liquid including water.

Please make sure you DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR OPAL JEWELRY TO WATER!

- Do not wash hands, take shower, do strenuous activity, run errands, clean the house or exercise with opals still on.

- Take off before bed and clean and buff the metal parts regularly to avoid using chemical cleaners.

- Micro paved Jewelry cannot be placed into an ultrasonic Jewelry cleaner due to the shaking, which might cause the tiny stones to fall out.

-Jewelry damaged due to not following the care instructions IS A FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER AND CANNOT BE RETURNED, EXCHANGED OR REIMBURSED.

-“care tips” card is provided with your order.

“MADE TO ORDER” MEANING: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/843427149775/creating-a-made-to-order-piece-of

▪️Each “made to order” piece of jewelry is made especially for you using materials that cannot be reclaimed or sold right away.
▪️Made to order item should never be treated as other purchases and at the very least the value of time and effort that went into creating a M.T.O piece should always be compensated in a case of a return;
▪️I put a lot of effort into making sure my customers are familiar with care instructions and know what to except from their purchase.
That’s why items that are not meeting expectations or damaged due to not reading care tips are strictly non refundable.
▪️35% mandatory fee is withheld from any amount of refund issued for returning any item that is M.T.O.

UNDERSTANDING NATURAL OPAL AND LEVELING YOUR EXPECTATIONS: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/900279778388/understanding-natural-opal-must-read

- YOUR JEWELRY WILL AND SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT FROM THE LISTING PHOTOS EVEN IF THE PHOTOS ARE TAKEN OF THE ACTUAL OPAL

- The truth about this gemstone is that its uniqueness, its ever changing play of color, its brilliance, color intensity or fire pattern cannot be captured on a still image. A natural fire opal can look green on one photograph and red on the other with every subtle change in light angle or its intensity.

- There is a SIGNIFICANT amount of attenuation present when you look at an opal under natural daylight compared to its artificially exaggerated brilliance seen under the artificial indoor light;

- it is NORMAL for opals to change their appearance, so please keep this in mind that even the same opal NEVER LOOKS THE SAME!

MATERIALS, QUALITY STANDARD AND AUTHNTICIT GUARANTEE. Read more: https://www.kissedbyfirejewelry.com/post/900280901054/materials-and-the-quality-standard

I use only high quality precious metals and natural gemstones in creating my jewelry. The quality standard for this shop is set to be especially high.
I use my best quality stones for creating items offered at this shop, so each and every item is not only made to order but is typically made with perfect or nearly perfect gemstones, with excellent time consuming level of craftsmanship seen in each unique design.
▪️I do not use stock photos for a reason: I design everything myself, and take my own photos of the items upon completion of the item so you can be sure that the jewelry sold through this store is going to look exactly as pictured with the exception of gemstones, which are all unique and will never look the same.

The ring is absolutely beautiful! Stunning would be a better description. There was a hitch in shipping during Christmas and Julia made everything so much better. The craftsmanship and service level are far above and beyond. Rest assured in your purchase from Julia.
