Yellow Gold Pear White Opal Ring with Two Side Diamonds
This amazing pear shaped opal is full of fire and color. The overall body color is white, but its full of green, blue, red, orange and yellow play of color. Mined in Australia and top quality. This is a solid opal weighing 2.20 carats. As you can see, this is a nice thick opal with a high cabochon dome. I designed the ring with open sides so you can enjoy the flashes of colors from all angles and see the beauty of the opal from all sides. I set the opal in 14 karat yellow gold and placed two large diamonds on the side.
This is such a beautiful opal all by itself, I didn’t want to clutter it up with a halo or a bunch of little diamonds competing for its attention. I set two round brilliant cut diamonds next to it, they total 0.16 carat, and they are SI in clarity and GH in color. Its a very simple design, giving all the attention to the opal. How do I know that this opal was mined in Australia when so many are coming out of Ethiopia these days? Well, a very good friend of mine actually went to Australia and purchased the rough crystal from a miner there. Then he brought it, along with many others, back to his workshop in the US and hand cut the opal to its gorgeous elongated pear shape.
I’ve had the privilege to call him my friend for 30 years. He has an eye for picking rough opal that is stable, top quality, and full of color. I’ve been selling his opals in my jewelry designs for 30 years and never once has a customer returned because their opal cracked or broke. There are so many different types of opals….white, gray, black, boulder, and more. Each and every opal has its own little personality. I have a vast collection of loose and mounted opals, many are for sale on my Etsy Store. So each of my designs is a one-of-a-kind when it comes to my opals. I always buy the gems loose then create a piece to suit its personality. Each ring and pendant is different and has its own story behind it.
