Opal and Yellow Gold Bespoke Ring

Posted on the 16th December 2016

The owner of this beautiful this ring was an opal lover, so after viewing several options this beautiful 11 carat oval black opal was chosen by the customer. it displays an incredible play of colour with large flashes of vibrant yellow, green and blue against a dark background.

Given how stunning and colourful the opal is on its' own, the design process for this ring was relatively straightforward. We decided on a very simple rubover setting with a plain band to show the opal off at its' best but also to keep the stone secure. Opals can crack and break if knocked so the protection of the rubover setting will help keep this gem looking its best over time.
