This handmade filigree ring with a beautiful opal has a romantic Gothic feel to it, but has an appeal to everyone.  and available in either .925 sterling silver or antique bronze. The style is based on the 1950's style with swirls and scrollwork. 

The master mold comes from a retired jewellery shop here in town. The bezel is a scalloped bezel good for setting stones. 

Crafted with detail, this handmade opal ring features delicate filigree work, a technique that involves weaving fine threads of metal to create intricate patterns. The vintage-inspired design captures the essence of antique jewellery, blending sophistication with a touch of old-world charm.

Details:

  • Ring Dimensions: The top of the ring is 1.3cm wide and the tip sits 0.6cm high depending on the height of the stone.
  • Materials:  available in either .925 sterling silver, a mix of 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper, and antique bronze, a mix of 90% copper and 10% tin. Both are free of nickel, zinc or cadmium, which are common metal allergens, which can cause rashes and sores. For more info on bronze, read my blog post or consult my FAQ.
  • Gemstone Facts: This ring is set with a 5x7mm Ethiopian opal. The opals I have can vary from one to the next in colour and clarity, so the one in the picture and the one I make you will be slightly different than the one photographed. Do feel free to ask for pictures if you want to see the exact one that will be in your ring, but I promise you'll love it! I have a limit number of them on hand, but I do go to gem shows twice a year to restock on these stones because they are so beautiful.
  • Shipping info: Shipping is with tracking and full insurance. For international buyers, please be aware of taxes and duties are payable to your country and must be paid by the buyer and is not collected by me.
  • For any questions about my materials, processing time, and more, check out my FAQ for more info!

Ethiopian opal is believed to be an old gemstone. In 1939, an anthropologist found evidence of use of the opal by early man in a cave in Kenya. It was not until the mid 1990s when the opal was re-discovered and mining was begun. Good Ethiopian opals have diverse play of colours from neon reds, oranges, green, blue, white, yellow, brown and a fire colour in a translucent background. Ethiopian fire opals have striking pattern formations which make each opal unique.

Perfect as an engagement ring, a unique accessory, or a thoughtful gift, this sterling silver Vintage Style Filigree Ring with Ethiopian Opal is ideal for those who appreciate the grace of romantic fashion. Let it become a cherished addition to your collection, embodying the enduring allure of a bygone era.
