Natural fire opal ring made with a top quality white opal gemstone 8x6mm in size, which can have faceted or cabochon cut and be of AAA grade, which is standard quality for my opal jewelry offered at this shop, or of rare and impressive quality grade I refer to as AAAA.
The opals made with lower quality standard are sold via other channels and at a lower price.
There are also opal pendant and earrings that together make up a gorgeous set - a fantastic gift for someone‘ s anniversary or another meaningful and special event.
The ring is available in sizes 5,6,7,8and 9 most of the time.
✅ THE OPAL
🔹Origin: earth mined, 100% natural, solid, untreated, perfect gift of Mother Nature as it was born.
🔹 Shape and cut: oval faceted or oval cabochon.
🔹 Dimensions: 8x6mm
🔹 Weight: 0.7 -1.3 Ct approximately depending upon the cut (cabochon is always heavier)
🔹 Quality grade: AAA+
🔹Colors: rare opals in AAAA quality grade usually have glowing appearance with every single rainbow colors particularly blue or white reflective base - a lot of pink, orange shades.
Standard opals are high quality opals with moderate to extremely bright fire colors and a vibrant easily visible play of color (varies depending upon lighting and other factors- please read “the disclaimer” provided below that explains in detail why)
✅ THE SETTING
🔹Solid 925 sterling silver 4 prong semi mount ring setting with white gold or rhodium plated finish with light oxidation finish designed with Celtic inspired influence, and is based on one of the more traditional and recognizable ancient symbols: he Celtic Cross.
The ring is my original design as well as the pendant and the earrings, which all have unique vintage look, but is made with the advantages of the modern era,technology, which allows manufacturing of tarnish resistant sterling silver jewelry, which is plated with white gild or rhodium over the plain silver.
I have a long term goal of using only plated sterling silver settings, which require significantly lower to none maintenance of the jewelry, which looks highly polished, smooth and protects the silver from tarnishing and from micro damage, which dulls the metal’s surface over time due to tiny scratches from wearing the jewelry.
It is particularly important for natural opal jewelry to have a more resistant to tarnish metal, because opals cannot be exposed to any liquid including liquid chemical cleaners widely used as a “go to” tool to clean sterling silver jewelry.
The ring is lightly oxidized over the plated layer, which serves to highlight the details of the design and create a vintage aged appearance to any jewelry piece. This oxidation is permanent, and will not wear off over time. Some gemstones might look slightly darker in an “antiqued” style setting, and translucent opals usually lose a lot of their beauty in a darker ring setting, which becomes the opal’s natural base tone and alters the play of color significantly.
🔹The antiqued finish helps to highlight every detail of the band’s style, so that the ring looks simple, but very appealing to nearly everyone: those who love Celtic Jewelry and those who prefer classic or vintage style - my signature is simplicity and versatility, which can be achieved by a balanced design, which is not overly busy with details and unnecessary elements or made for a huge size gemstone, which also makes it very affordable.
It can be an excellent choice for an alternative style engagement ring or just a great gift for someone special.
🔹 The ring can be made with a cabochon cut opal - see photos or with a faceted oval opal - both cuts are in stock in superb quality grade and will not disappoint!
🔹Available in size 5,7,8 and 9 US scale.
Availability of the size or a stone in a desired combination of cut and quality grade is never guaranteed, because I work alone, and not always able to follow up on timely updates made to my listings, and can use a stone for another item at the moment when you are placing your order - I monitor the inventory by manually renewing all of the listings. Which is why you might see “only one is available “ warning under the listing in Etsy search.
It is technically correct, because the top AAAA quality grade opals are hard to find and they get used up quickly by means of using the same stone to make multiple pieces which fit the same center stone size.
🟣SHIPPING AND PROCESSING:
💯FREE USPS PRIORITY MAIL ON ALL ORDERS!💯
▪️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 I ship is a piece of jewelry that is made only to order, so normally it usually takes 1-2 weeks to fulfill most orders without having to rush and possibly compromise the quality of craftsmanship - it doesn’t apply to all items, but as a rule of thumb, anything that is made with quality requires more time than a mass produced piece of junk that is shipped as soon as you put your order in. When it comes to handmade goods, very fast shipping is probably a warning sign rather than a testament to the best customer service…..
▪️Each item is made only to order - there are no premanufactured pieces, which I can drop in a mailbox the same day - every piece requires a lot of time, care and attention to have the best craftsmanship that I am happy with
▪️MAXIMUM processing time is set for 4 weeks for situations when I need to reorder something or when “life happens “…. It is not the average time you should expect.
▪️I do accept URGENT ORDERS for items that can be made very quickly, but you have to leave a note for me with your order specifying the DEADLINE when you need your item to arrive. You can also obtain prior confirmation
▪️Your finished jewelry will be shipped in a beautiful velvet jewelry box, with a polishing cloth and a care instructions sheet included with every order. I package everything to keep the jewelry protected from damage in transit and also ready for gift giving
▪️I don’t have solid gold inventory at home as of this moment due to the very small size of my shop’s operations, so I have to have extra time for ordering settings for ALL solid gold orders which take minimum 2 weeks to complete.
▪️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. Please accept my apology for any delay in responding to your messages, and I am extremely grateful for your understanding and support 🙏🏻❤️

- The truth about this gemstone is that its uniqueness, its ever changing play of color, its brilliance, color intensity or fire pattern can be fully appreciated only when seen in real life. Besides any slight change in the light angle causes complete change in the opal’s appearance and visible colors
- 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!
I use only precious metals: 10k, 14k solid gold and 925 sterling silver. My favorite gemstone has always been Ethiopian Welo Opal, but now I also use moissanite to create my jewelry. Both fiery gemstones are very different but are satisfying to work with as they are capable of creating a flawless piece of beauty and perfection to be the result of my creative effort. I do not settle for mediocre or ordinary: my jewelry is made with RARE and UNIQUE gemstones. I personally test precious metals and gemstones for authenticity, and guarantee that all materials used in my jewelry are safe, hypoallergenic, authentic and are original designs - never something that was mass produced or made to resell. My jewelry is original and offers true value.
I have recently introduced an initiative that allows everyone to have a custom made version of any item listed in my shop by changing the center gemstone into ANY GEMSTONE THAT THEY WANT. You can choose from a wide selection of birthstones and choose from any setting in my shop to create your perfect gift and mix and match pieces for making gifts for friends or family members or anyone - the idea is that the jewelry can be purchased for an AFFORDABLE PRICE and be created for you within the same processing time as the item in the listing. All of the gemstones I get are SUSTAINABLY SOURCED and are produced by small businesses that are usually local and family owned, so the process is very transparent and straightforward. Give it a try!
Now I am offering more moissanite jewelry than ever before due to the changes in the industry allowing me to purchase moissanite products that are CERTIFIED and come with a LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY. The quality of the moissanite gemstones is INCREDIBLE, and the colors are absolutely stunning, so I have been working on my solid gold Bridal and Engagement Jewelry Collection featuring new and unique designs created with moissanite and natural opal in the same elegant style that I have always been offering to my customers: I adore dainty jewelry and I design with an open heart for everyone in mind, so my pieces are perfectly versatile and fit nearly any occasion. My craftsmanship and the gemstone quality is known for its highest standards.

The ring is absolutely gorgeous! My partner proposed to me with a black opal from this shop. I loved mine so much that I came back here to replace a scammy, low-quality ring from another seller. My partner now wears a white opal in the same cut & band as mine. Our rings look gorgeous together! You can only catch the rainbow in the black opal under certain lights, which I love, and the red hues Julia picked for us are always visible. The white opal is a rainbow of color "from alien worlds," as Julia put it! Sometimes we stop what we're doing to admire it. The quality of both rings is incredible. Julia is very kind, helpful, & communicative. She customized a facet cut into this band. She even rushed my order for V-Day since she'd been booked up when I reached out over the holidays. We'll post pictures sometime! Thank you, Julia!
