Elegant solid 14K Rose Gold handmade ring with a fiery Ethiopian opal. I set the opal in sturdy setting and used one of my tools to create the decoration around the stone. It was incredibly hard to photograph the true beauty of this chocolate colored opals' red and green flash. When wearing this ring the flashes will amaze and draw attention easily. When creating this ring I decided to form the band in a euro style instead of the typical circle. I noticed for people like me, with larger knuckles than figers, this stlye can help with taking the ring on and off, while also keeping it from spinning, allowing it to be more true to size on your finger.
* I definitely recommend taking any Ethiopian opal off before bathing or doing house work, and to be careful not to put on lotion while wearing. These opals, like all opals are amorphous and have water content that ranges between 3-21%. Which means they will absorb and be effected so it's best to use caution to retain the true beauty of the gem.
