Peruvian Pink Opal Statement Ring, Size 9.25
A natural Peruvian Pink Opal cut into a smooth, oval cabochon. It is quite a saturated, pretty pink with a touch of cream and paler pink. Pink Opal is a gem-variety in the opal family and it comes from the Andes. It is an October birthstone and is often used to help with stress, anxiety, insomnia and heart-related disorders.
- SETTING: I set it in fine silver and sterling on a split sterling shank. I added some subtle texture around the edges of the setting.
- SIZE: The stone measures 29mm x 16mm (1 3/16" x 1 5/8") and the setting adds another few millimetres all around. The ring is size 9.25.
- FINISH: I gave the silver a light patina and a satin finish.
