"Egyptian Sunrise" Australian Opal Ring is a nod to the incredible and very intentional architectural talents of the Ancient Egyptians...merged with one of Earth's most magnificent and somewhat haphazard creations - the Opal. This juxtaposition of organized, repeatable structure next to one of a kind geological formation, is alluring. Together, these forms pair like the Sun rising over the over the Ancient Pyramids of Egypt.
At its core, is a lavender Crystal Boulder Pipe Opal, set upon a vertical axis, and held in place by delicate claw prongs. This remarkable stone is nearly impossible to describe; sometimes it appears more flat, while in other lights, it comes alive with paraiba blue fire. At times, it has a bluer purple hued base, and then, a glowing pink aura will highlight its border, as though the sun has suddenly backlit the stone. A stunning one of a kind gem.
Offset by an almost 4mm wide band, with satin finish, this ring is a true statement piece. While the band, 2 golden steps, plus Opal create a 4 tiered step piece, the ring still remains quite low in profile by design. The stepped edges and inner band are polished for a touch of contrast. It is at once, angular and soft with curves; a piece full of beautiful and enticing contradictions.
*Note: Opals are difficult to photograph as they look different at varying angles and under different lighting conditions. I do my best to capture them in different lights and as accurately as possible. Please don't hesitate to ask questions prior to purchase.
