Faceted Peruvian Blue Opal Ring, size 8
Handmade ring in Sterling and Argentium Sterling silver with a stunning, natural, faceted Peruvian Blue Opal in a crown setting on a patterned half round band. The six double claw setting is carefully hand crafted and fused using Argentium Sterling silver. The open setting allows light to pass through the translucent blue stone enhancing its ethereal effect. Polished finish. Size 8.
Referred to as a “common” opal because it does not have inner fire, Peruvian Blue Opal is anything but common, and is actually very rare and valuable. Today, most of the highly sought after sea blue opal has been already mined from the location leaving mainly white material remaining.
