Hints and Tips
- Green and blue stones look best in a silver or white gold setting
- Orange and red stones look best in yellow gold settings
- Diamonds can be a great way to accentuate the natural colour of opal
- When looking at opal engagement rings, boulder opals are more robust and therefore more suitable
- Rubover (bezel) settings are the most secure form of setting, offering added protection to the opal
- Claw tips in claw settings tend to wear down over time, especially in rings
- Speak to us about the best orientation for the stone, as many opals look best in particular orientations (i.e which way up the stone is facing)
- Remember to tell us your ring size when asking for a quote
Opal setting samples
Here are just a few examples of our work making custom Australian opal jewellery. Whether it is Black Opal, Boulder Opal, Crystal Opal, or White/Milky Opal, we can create amazing pieces of wearable art for you or your loved one. At Opals Down Under, we help you in the process, from choosing the right opal for you, to the design process and final setting. We can custom make outstanding Opal Pendants, Opal Rings, and more for you to suit both men and women (we often recommend men’s settings be custom made).
We can create different settings depending on your taste, from Classic/Traditional, to Modern/Contemporary, and all those in between. To help guide you, we’ve provided some examples of different styles/tastes below.
Please do note – Custom settings can take between 2 to 5 weeks (up to 7 weeks in busy periods) to complete, pending on the design required. We do ask for the stone to be paid in full before we have one of our jewellers commence work on the setting. The estimated time period for setting begins on approval of the design.
