As it shimmers with the colors of all gems, the Romans considered it the most precious gemstone. Writers compared it to galaxies, fireworks and volcanoes, and to this day it is associated with hope, integrity and truth.
The name "opal" most likely comes from the Sanskrit word upala, meaning precious stone.
Despite its amazing properties, noble opal was discovered relatively late. The first mentions of him appeared at the end of the existence of ancient Greece.
The most beautiful opals come from Australia and Ethiopia. It was there that I started my search for a stone for a unique project. After a few weeks, I was able to get in touch with a jeweled broker from the legendary Welo mine in Ethiopia. After negotiations, I purchased a beautiful, natural 5.5 ct opal from him, which immediately after the purchase was sent for certification to confirm its authenticity.
The next step was pure pleasure. Opal was set on a ring, decorated with an engraved floral motif, adorned with additional diamonds. Everything is handcrafted in 14k white gold.
