This ring is a size 7. The round opal has a diameter of just under 1/2". The ring band is just under 4mm wide and it has a light hammered texture.
The opal is set in a solid 14k gold bezel, sterling silver backing (not seen when worn) and a sturdy 14k gold fill ring band. Using these three different metals for one piece gives the look of solid gold but without the hefty price tag.

What is a monarch opal?
Monarch opal is a cultured opal certified by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). It has nano particles of silica dioxide, just the same as natural opal. It takes about a year to grow. It is more durable than natural opals, so it is ideal for jewelry and it won't be harmed by detergents like hand soap. There are no color enhancements or dyes. All the colors are created by the prismatic effect of the light dispersion on the silica particles. These gorgeous monarch opals are grown right here in the USA.
