A Guide to Buying the Best Opal Rings
Our opal rings will impress even the finest jewelry connoisseurs. Whether you are looking for a minimalist band or for an exquisite piece decorated with opals and diamonds, we have at least one great option for you. The DeSantis Fine Art Jewelry
collection puts some of the finest natural opal rings on display.
Types of Opals
Educating yourself about the types of opals is essential for satisfactory purchases. The black opal is often called the “Rolls Royce” of gemstones. A black opal has a very dark body tone – it can range from very deep grey to completely black. The presence of iron oxide and carbon is decisive for the vibrant color of such opals. All of our rings feature exquisite natural black opals, giving you access to the finest quality on the market.
White and crystal opals are two other varieties you will love to look at and wear on any occasion. White opals are characterized by their milky color and crystal opals are translucent or transparent. Boulder, and matrix opals are other, less expensive varieties of the gemstone.
Quality of Other Materials Used
When looking for opal rings, always check for information about the precious metal and the other gemstones used. All of our rings are made of 14-karat gold. Some of them feature authentic diamonds, tanzanite stone and turquoise.
Look for a certificate of authenticity – it will help you rest assured that you are viewing some of the best opal rings in Australia and that the quality of all materials is guaranteed.
Choose an opal ring that you feel happy with, a piece that corresponds to your personal style. Each stone is said to have its individuality and uniqueness. You are the only person that can decide which ring is the right one.
Look at the brilliance of the stone and the depth of the color. Brilliant stones are the most beautiful and usually the most expensive ones. Avoid opals that have imperfections that are visible to the naked eye. The best opal rings look flawless and sophisticated.
