Opals are known to have a wide variety of colors: white, blue, green, pink and orange are among the finer shades you can find in opal gemstones. One of the most mesmerizing characteristics of these stones is its opalescence, which causes the gem to exhibit a shimmer of different colours when viewed from different angles.

A unique opal project: An Opal divorce ring


The design and the making of this ring was definitely something I personally resonated with. My client reached out to me to make her a new left hand ring since she recently separated from her partner. She wanted to have an original piece, asymmetrical and very colorful. She wanted something to remind her that things do not need to be perfect to be beautiful. It was such  an honor to work on a piece that celebrated self love and individuality.

I hope this short blog showed you some interesting information about opal and gave you some appreciation and curiosity for them.
