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 t 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 .925 sterling silver and sterling silver solder. Details and measurements listed below!

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.
