Minimalist, modern, and boho chic! This ring is composed of a free formed prong setting ring which I hand crafted myself. Originally the band was intended for a different gemstone. I wasn't happy with the result. So I set it off to the side and waited for a better idea. I had been wanting to get a genuine oval opal in so I ordered it. When the opal arrived I got an idea, set the gem and it fit perfectly! What a happy accident! This is rustically inspired but tastefully made for those who love the beautiful raw look with a sparkle center piece which makes me call it starlight! Very classically detailed and makes a great gift as well! The prongs are made with hand soldered 20 gauge wire which was shortened and filed for rounded prong ends, the soldered atop a 16 gauge band for stacking purposes. This ring is made from recycled 14k yellow gold. Details and measurements listed below!
This listing is for the opal ring only.

In the Middle Ages, opal was considered a stone that could provide great luck because it was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in the color spectrum of the opal. It was also said to confer the power of invisibility if wrapped in a fresh bay leaf and held in the hand. Even as recently as the beginning of the 20th century, it was believed that when a Russian saw an opal among other goods offered for sale, he or she should not buy anything more, as the opal was believed to embody the evil eye.
Opal is considered the birthstone for people born in October or under the signs of Scorpio and Libra.
★ IMPORTANT SHIPPING & PRODUCTION DETAILS!! ★
RINGS: All rings are made to order at the selected size requested during checkout. I do not use a formula to determine ring sizing for wide bands (Unless noted within the listing) so if you select a size 6 and purchase 8-10 rings each ring will rest at the US ring size 6. All rings made at US ring sizes though you may contact me for alternative equivalents. For multiple bands or wide bands I suggest going up .5 to 1 whole size larger.
All of FMJ pieces are made-to-order from scratch. RUSH PRODUCTION: If your order is time sensitive and you need your order made quickly, domestically or internationally, please contact me prior to purchase. NOTE: this request is only for an internal production rush in how fast your piece will be made, NOT a shipping upgrade. Item creation times have typically between 3-8 business day processing "Ships in" time to be made and shipped out. All orders are mailed in a poly bubble lined envelope. As always all orders come sweetly packaged in a silver jewelry box with bow ready for gift giving. Domestic orders shipped at your selected shipping speed with a tracking number and international orders come with a customs/tracking number—though tracking is NOT always available outside the US. Shipping upgrades are available during the checkout process.
**Please note: if you purchase a shipping upgrade, even express, you will still have to purchase the rush production shipping option (Unless otherwise discussed) for your order to be created for you within a certain time. Please note that purchasing a shipping upgrade only affects how long it takes to get to you from the date of shipment and only priority or express includes $100 of insurance on your order in most cases.**

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I figure out my ring size? How does FMJ size rings?
If you do not know your ring size you can get sized by any local jeweler or you can purchase the listing below and do it from home! I do not recommend self measuring as this is not an accurate way to obtain a true ring size.
I use standard USA ring sizing but can help you confirm the right size in any other measuring scale (UK, Australian, European).
*Please note I cannot be held responsible for incorrect ring size determination based on self measurement.
When will my order ship?
Most items within my shop typically are made and shipped between 4-8 business days after purchase. Etsy displays a creation "ships in" timeframe before, during, and after your purchase. To view your order and ship time info follow these steps:
click on the "you" tab
click on the "purchases and reviews" tab
scroll down till you find your order with me
If your order has shipped already it will display a big BLUE button that says "track package".
click the blue "track package" button and a new window will pop up.
*NOTE etsy's link with the USPS system is not always accurate or up to date. To view the USPS tracking system you need to scroll down, find your tracking number, and click it to be redirected to the tracking page for the USPS.
Etsy Displayed FREE Shipping During Purchase
Free shipping is offered for orders over $35.00. Should an order be returned for any reason the buyer is responsible for the standard $4.50 shipping charge which etsy has incorporated into the item cost at the time of the purchase. Should an order be partially refunded, if the order total drops below the $35.00 threshold, the shipping cost will be deducted from the item refund.
*Also please note that First Class/Priority shipping options contain NO insurance on a parcel unless you have payed an additional fee for the USPS service. USPS Express Includes insurance up to $100.00. If you would like, for an additional cost, you can add further insurance if needed(you must contact me prior to purchase for this service).
Gift wrapping and packaging
All items come gift wrapped/boxed and carefully packaged. If you purchase multiple items within 1 order all items will be grouped into 1 box upon shipment to conserve shipping cost. If you would like to purchase additional boxes it is not a problem, please contact me prior to purchase for a custom listing for additional boxes!
I need my order faster than 4-8 buinsess days!
I do offer a rush upgrade to make your order faster. This listing does not include an upgrade on shipping. Please be sure to upgrade you shipping as well to ensure timely delivery of your parcel once it is shipped.
This listing is non refundable, as i will make your item(s) during my personal time so that my order cue is un affected. Think about it like this... would you clock in for overtime for free?
Unsure if it will arrive by your needed date? Please contact me prior to purchase for a specific date.
What is oxidized?
I use sterling silver and LOS to make oxidized items. The oxidized effect is a hematite finish or is almost black in color. Please note this process is not permanent, as wear and tear can buff away the layers of darkeneing causing an almost antique effect eventually.
Can I return or exchange my order?
Personalized or "custom listing" items such as initial rings or birthstone duos can not be returned. If you order a ring with either of these and it does not fit it can be resized! I do not charge for this service though keep in mind the information below when purchasing:
The customer is responsible for shipping costs to/ from my studio for returns and exchanges, and prior shipping costs cannot be refunded.
I accept exchanges and returns on all other items.
