Opal and silver ring
This is a absolutely beautiful stone. The Welo Opal comes from Ethiopia.
Care must be taken when wearing one of these Opals so it is advised to keep away from water, perfumes etc.
Hydrophane opal is a fresh word designed to define a specific Opal form. Opals have been mined for thousands of years in Europe and more than 165 years in Australia. However, the finding of opals from Ethiopia and Hydrophane has been around for only about 20 years.
Ive made this ring with a wide 1 cm band and set the stone in a decorative surround.
This ring is size O.
Hallmarked by the London Assay office and my own JRJ hallmark.
