White Australian Opal and Diamond Ring | Solid 14k Recycled Gold

400.00

◊ A sweet, delicate ring for the mermaid in us all. Genuine white Australian opal from the Coober Pedy mining district in South Australia near Adelaide is set in solid 14k recycled gold and is accented with a brilliant cut conflict free diamond. We love how opals express nearly every color in the visual spectrum.

◊ Hand fabricated from solid 14k recycled gold with a 4 mm opal and a 2 mm diamond, VS clarity, G-H color. Our opals and diamonds are never treated with color or heat.

◊ Opal is a hydrated amorphous form of silicate which classifies it as a mineraloid, which is a mineral-like substance that doesn't demonstrate crystallinity. It's found in limonite, sandstone, rhyolite, marl, and basalt. It's colors are caused by the reflection of white light which enters the top of the stone. This light bounces around inside the tiny microscopic silica spheres within the stone, causing the diffraction of the light and the 'prism' or rainbow effect which we all know and love.

◊ A brilliant cut refers to a diamond or other gemstone, cut in a particular form with abundant facets so as to have exceptional brilliance. The shape resembles that of a cone and provides maximized light return through the top of the diamond.

◊ The word diamond comes from the ancient Greek adámas, meaning unbreakable. Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperatures and pressure in the Earth's mantle. Carbon-containing minerals provide the carbon source, and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to over 3 billion years. Diamonds are brought close to the Earth's surface through deep volcanic eruptions by magma, which cools into igneous rocks.
