Beautiful Large Opal Rings


my-opal-ringOpals are a magical stone and no other stone looks like them. The fire in an opal is truly amazing and setting an opal on a silver or gold ring showcases the stone’s beauty to perfection. I love large opal rings and can’t get enough of their gorgeous fire.

Do you already have an opal ring or are you just curious about the different types of opals or the different opal ring settings you can choose from?

Because, really, there are lots of large opal rings to choose from, and you are going to be spoilt for choice. I was, when I was shopping for mine.

I have gathered together lots of different opal rings all in one place so you can take your pick of the rings and do some investigation into prices and styles. There is something for every budget and taste.

An Opal is Timeless and Elegant

A beautiful opal ring will last many years and draw glances of admiration from everyone who sees it sparkling on your finger, catching the light and throwing off green, red, pink, yellow, orange, turquoise and purple lights, as well as other colors and hues. There are large opal rings for everyone.

My First Encounter with Opals

I first fell in love with this stone when I visited Coober Pedy in Australia and went ‘noodling’ which means digging through the piles of rubble left over from opal miners in case they missed anything.

I found a couple of pieces (which I sold to pay for the next leg of my trip!) although the 120 degree heat makes it very hard work! People in Coober Pedy actually live underground because it’s so hot there! The colors you see in a genuine, natural opal are like nothing else on Earth.

18K Yellow Gold Huge Opal Ring

large-opal-ring-goldIf you are looking for the highest quality gold with the highest quality opal, this ring is jaw-droppingly beautiful and you will appreciate its perfection. This is one of the most stunning large opal rings.

How Opals are Formed

Have you ever wondered just how opals are made, and how come they have all those amazing colors in them? These stones are formed from a solution of water and silicon dioxide.

Water runs through the Earth and on its way down it picks up the silica from sandstone and carries it into voids and cracks, which are there from decomposing fossils or natural faults. The water evaporates over time, leaving a deposit of silica behind.

Over long periods of time this cycle repeats and repeats, and finally a beautiful opal is formed. Every opal is unique; no two are the same.

Take your time when choosing large opal rings. Do you want the stone mounted on silver, white gold or yellow gold? Do you want a large opal ring or a medium one? Do you want just the opals or some diamonds too? Choose the style of ring which grabs your imagination and heart.
