With such beautifully unique markings, this Australian Pipe Opal begged to be transformed into a piece featuring it's unique characteristics. Thus, the "Golden Arches" Opal Ring was born. This nearly 3 and a half carat oval shaped Opal is semi-opaque in nature, with magnificent lavender and green flashes, and a faint pink glow from within. Along the stone's sides, run thin strips of sedimentary layering, and across its center, a stunning Golden Arch.
The one of a kind Opal is oriented north south, delicately claw prong set, and to one side of the stone, is a double set of Golden Arches made to echo the Golden Caramel Arch that runs across the Opal's center. But wait; hidden behind the mounting is yet another series of Arches - a secret set of Golden Rings. Because sometimes it's those hidden details, what's on the inside, that matters when you need it most. One of A Kind.

*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.
*Most items are made to order, so please allow for the necessary fabrication time (up to 4-6 weeks; sooner whenever possible). We use natural gemstones, and as such, some inclusions and slight variation from stone to stone should be expected. The subtle differences in each piece are part of what makes it beautiful and uniquely yours.
