BOULDER OPAL RING IN 14K YELLOW GOLD
Boulder Opals...not one is like the other, a stunning play of blue and green can be seen in this opal. This ring is hand fabricated in 14k yellow gold abdn beautifully showcases an Australian Boulder Opal that is tucked within the curve of the gold band. The opal is ethically sourced from the Queensland mine and measures 10.4mm x 6mm, weighing 1.2ctw. Set within the 14k yellow gold 1.75mm band are six single cut diamonds that have a G color grade and an SI2 clarity grade with a total diamond weight of .025ctw. I gave this ring a soft satin finish to create a contrast to the shiny finish of the opal. A simple design with a bold statement. Finger size 7.
Gold Care & Boulder Opal Care
I recommend cleaning your gold jewelry with dish soap diluted with water to remove oils and dirt. Clean with a soft cotton cloth or a soft toothbrush. Rinse clean with warm water and pat dry.
Caring for your Boulder Opal Doublet: The Boulder Opal Doublet is just as strong as a solid Boulder Opal but because the layer of Boulder Opal has been glued to a piece of Ironstone, the opal should not be cleaned in an ultrasonic or be submerged in a water substance for a long period of time. Wipe over the opal with a soft cotton cloth and soapy water.
Caring for your Solid Boulder Opal: Wear your Boulder opal with care and if the surface needs a light cleaning then wipe over the opal with a soft cotton cloth and soapy water. Avoid Ultrasonic cleaners, the vibrations from the ultrasonic is too harsh for the opal.
Can I wear my Opal everyday? Opals are softer and may be
is recommended to remove your opal item when doing activites that may cause wear to your item...house cleaning, dishes, gardening, biking, swimming, rock climbing (just a few examples). Opals can dull over time just from wearing everyday so your Opal may require repolishing over time to bring back the luster like the day you first got it.
