I love a good signet ring, it's both masculine and feminine & this ring has ultimate yin and yang vibes. The boulder opal has powerful flash and we decided to accent this gorgeous red-green stone with coordinated gems. We're celebrating the strange and wonderful beauty of opposites.
Note: the flash in this stone is "directional," meaning different colors are viewed from different angles. From the opposite side it's blue, green, and yellow! Please reach out if you'd like to see more pictures or a video of this piece firstname.lastname@example.org

Boulder Opal is the name for opal that runs in thin veins through its host-rock: ironstone. These stones are cracked open with a hammer to reveal the face of the vein. For this reason, many boulder opals have a wavy and natural surface that is part of their beauty.
The beauty and value of opal is measured by its brightness, its body tone, its pattern and it's "play of color."
Opal is associated with magic across many cultures. It is said to contain galaxies and fireworks. Ancient Greeks believed that Opals gave the gift of prophecy and protected their owners from disease.
Opal is the birthstone of October (also tourmaline!) and was rumored to be bad luck for anyone not born in this month. Myth busted! This rumor was started by a 19th century novelist, and we think it brings a touch of magic to whoever chooses to wear one.
Australian Opal is considered to be ethical and environmentally responsible in its sourcing by default - because it can be found on the surface or in shallow pits, mining is not dangerous or environmentally destructive.
