Rare Mexican Fire Opal, Sapphire, Garnet Black Diamonds Ring

$30,000

Some like ordinary, others love extraordinary! This piece is the absolute definition of that word.

When some think of the Fire Opal they think of an orange and red hued stone. That is what makes this particular opal so rare. The color play in this gem is beautiful. The gem is saturated in a sea of deep blue and magnificent purple. In the midst of this there are patters of vibrant orange, bright magenta, turquoise, and a hint of lighter green. Encompassing the center stone, are vibrant yellow sapphires. On the outer rim of the halo are mysterious black diamonds, and Tsfavorite garnets. The size of this miraculous center gem is 5.20ct! The accenting yellow sapphires are 0.65ct, and the black diamonds 0.42ct. The Tsfavorite garnets account for almost one carat of the ring at 0.97ct. This ring was constructed in 2014, and is categorized as a contemporary styled ring.

Wear:

When shopping for a show stopping cocktail ring, two things truly count; the size and the look. Cocktail rings usually are the signature piece of jewelry when coordinating an outfit. This ring is perfect for doing just that. The average size of a Fire opal is anywhere from 1.00 to 2.00. With this one being an extraordinary size of 5.02 it is sure to draw attention! Of course the way the other beautiful gems encompass it will draw compliments. The split band is gorgeous with the accents of Garnets. The gold chosen to complete the design of this ring is a wonder within itself. 18k gold is a softer form of gold raising its value tremendously. This ring only comes in a size 6.5 and there is only one of its kind. The array of colorful jewels along with the versatility of white gold makes this ring compatible with other types of jewelry. It can be matched with an emerald bracelet, another red and vibrant fire opal, or even white diamonds. The fact that it is encompassed by garnets with only a minimal amount of gold leaves very little possibility of it being sized to fit a larger finger. Although sizing can be attempted, one runs the risks of constantly losing stones, so routine checking by a professional is recommended.

Care:

The care of this ring is simple. As with any opal it should be kept from steam and ultrasonic. It should be cleaned mild soap and water. The gold while barely visible, can be polished daily or as often as it is worn. Also, because of the wear, it should be rhodium plated once a year. Natural oils from the skin will begin to darken the luster of white gold, so regular rhodium plating is imperative to the maintenance of appearance of white gold.

The price of this ring is 30,000, which is befitting with the unique size of the opal and the 18k white gold. It is an exquisite addition to any and every collection. It receives 100 in the majority of categories.
