About Opal Wedding Rings
Opals come in three primary tones: black, white, and crystal. In black opals, the color shimmers against a black background, and in white opals, against a white background. In crystal opals, the color appears to float on top of or even inside the translucent stone. The right choice for you entirely up to your taste.
Opal Wedding Ring Designs
Opals are made when silica that was dissolved in water forms gemstones deep underground. When the silica forms in a regular pattern of tiny spheres, it creates fire (or precious) opal. Opals are usually cut in cabochon shapes, though they are also available in standardized shapes, including round and oval.
Beautiful Gemstone - Opals go well with colored accent stones or with diamonds. Diamonds emphasize the overall brightness, while colored accents pick up on colors in the stone.
- Durability - When choosing an opal wedding ring, look for one where the setting protects the stone from accidental damage, especially if you work with your hands. Opal is slightly softer than most gemstones, rate 5.5 to 6.5 on Mohs hardness scale, but the right setting will protect yours for generations.
- Bold Settings - Some opal wedding rings feature opal inlay, small pieces of opal that fit inside the metal like a beautiful mosaic.
