Lately, I've had a huge amount of interest from visitors to OUR SHOP AT RUBY LANE in our opal rings. As a matter of fact, it seems that no sooner do I list them but they're sold, some in less than 2 hours! When the ring is something delicate and pretty like the one below which I'll
be listing in the next few days, I understand: it's a gorgeous setting of diamonds surrounding a single fiery opal .. the kind of ring you can wear anytime and anywhere.
But when it's a ring like the one shown at the top of this blog, even I'm amazed at how much interest a huge ring like this can generate. For starters, it weighs over 14 grams! That's really heavy for a woman's ring. But you know what? This spectacular ring is a one-of-a-kind! There's not another opal/diamond ring anywhere in the world that's like this one. Why? Because it's custom-designed!
I'm assuming the lady who requisitioned this ring might have had a name starting with "S" as the 12 superb diamonds that surround the 2 glorious large opals at the top follow an "S" pattern. There's approximately 1/2 ct. of diamonds in that ring! Then there's the opals! Wow, are they something else. The two large ones are each 9mm long. And just look at the fire in the pic here:
Just click on that photo or the one at the top to see many more angles on this knockout "Hollywood-style" ring. Yes, it's over the top .. for some people. But others love this kind of ring. If you visit OUR SHOP AT RUBY LANE, you'll see others that we've sold that are also quite large, though none as big as this.
We have more opal jewelry in OUR SHOP AT RUBY LANE, just recently added in time for your Christmas shopping. There's this delightful set of 14k gold earrings and pendant:
And this utterly gorgeous antique 14k gold opal and diamond bangle:
