Have a custom one of a kind opal ring crafted just for you!

Dive into the refreshing waters of this blue crystal opal . Deep hues of blues and greens wander inside this stone of mystery, like flashes in a lightning storm. Endless detail and layered patterns draw us into the stone to admire its eye catching twinkle. This stone was blessed with an array of textures and colours which bring the stone life. The slightly domed polished surface creates a perfect window to gaze into and admire the beauty held within. Especially mesmerising in the sun (see video). Will look exceptionally good in gold if you choose. 

The crystal of presence and transformation - Opal is present with you in the moment unlike any other gemstone, responding to its place and time by changing with lighting conditions and the angle of observation.

This ring will be finished for you in your size with your choice of metal. Please note this piece will take approx 2-3 weeks for me to complete. If you have any questions or would like to inquire about further customizations please contact me here

Precious opal is highly valued for its prismatic play of colour, a unique optical property which creates rainbows trapped within. The rarest and most coveted color is red, followed by orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. Brilliance, brightness, strength, pattern, body color, and color direction all determine a stones value. The rarest form of Australian opal is black opal, commanding the highest value and prized by collectors. Each opal has its own personality and no two are the same. Choose a stone with colours that speak to you, individual tastes play a big part in selecting the right one.

Opal has been associated with love, passion, desire and eroticism. It is a seductive stone, intensifying emotional states and releasing inhibitions. Wearing an opal is said to bring about loyalty and faithfulness while stimulating originality and dynamic creativity. It aids in accessing one’s true self, finding answers, and helps you to understand your full potential.

Opal amplifies traits, whether those traits are good or bad, and brings characteristics to the surface for transformation. It enhances self worth, confidence and self-esteem. It also brings lightness and spontaneity.  It can help you to pick up thoughts and feelings, amplify and return them to their source. It is a karmic stone and encourages positive emotions. It teaches that what you put out comes back to you, and is a protective stone in dangerous places

With proper care your precious opals will sparkle and shine for generations to wear and appreciate

Daily Care

  • Opals are soft stones, similar in hardness to glass. To avoid scratches remove your opal jewelry while exercising, working in the garden, doing the dishes, moving furniture, etc. Don't risk damaging your work of art.. 
  • Keep away from chemicals and beauty products, they can degrade the polish over time.
  • Solid Australian opal is safe to get wet, while I dont sell them doublets and triplets cannot get wet! 
  • Pro tip : Wear your rings on a chain or cord on your neck to keep them safe when working with your hands.
  • Pro Tip: When getting dressed jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off.

Storage: 

  • Create a specific home for your opals: Give your jewelry a place that it rests when it's not being worn. 
  • Store it away from humidity, moisture or extreme temperatures, not on top of the oven or in a sunny window.
  • Store each piece of gemstone/diamond jewelry separately so that harder stones don't scratch softer ones. It will help keep it safe from getting damaged and you'll always know where to find it. 

Cleaning at home:

Jewellery tends to collect dust in crevices and behind the stone, especially if worn daily.

  • A gentle wash and scrub with a soft toothbrush and mild soap is safe for cleaning. Blot dry with a soft cloth.
  • A polishing cloth is supplied to keep the metal setting at a high polish
  • Do not use comercial chemical jewellery cleaners or ultrasonic cleaners on opals. 

    You will always receive the exact opal pictured. I do my best to describe and capture them in different lighting and as accurately as possible. Colours may look different from monitor to monitor.

    All my jewelry settings are handcrafted in response to my hand cut one of a kind gemstones. I aim to do each stone justice by listening to what they want, cutting and crafting a setting to fully showcase it in the jewellery it was always meant to be. You always get a one of a kind art piece for you to wear, born of the earth and crafted especially for you.

    This is the most beautiful opal ring I have ever owned! It sparkles rainbow like a disco ball in any weather. This ring doesn’t fail to make me happy every day since it arrived! The stone itself is very high quality and it is very well cut and polished in a superb condition. The ring is very comfortable to wear and it is carefully made to keep the opal in the best condition! I cannot wait to add another beautiful jewelry made by him to my collection! Thank you so much. I absolutely love it!

    This necklace is a true heirloom piece, I am pretty certain that I gasped audibly when I opened up the package. I love all of the pieces that I own from Curtis so far: 3 necklaces, two pairs of earrings, 1 ring....I highly recommend following him on IG because when he posts new creations, they go quickly!!

    Vanessa

    Having a customised ring made by Curtis has been a privilege and a pleasure. He advised, updated and modified as the process progressed, far exceeding any previous experience and indeed expectations I may have had. The end result was a marvel and testimony to his workmanship. I simply couldn’t be any happier. Thank you, Curtis, for making my daughter such a unique and beautiful ring.

    The ring is absolutely stunning!!! I am slightly jewelry obsessed and am seriously blown away by Curtis's craftsmanship! It is the single most beautiful thing I have purchased from etsy to date! Thank you so much for your work! Will definitely be ordering more pieces :)

    A really beautifully crafted piece. The boulder opal is gorgeous and the finish to the silver is perfect. I think this will be a favourite piece for years to come.
