Platinum Yellow Gold Blue Green Solid Australian Black Opal and Diamond Engagement Ring

Opal rings are special—they’re not just jewellery; they’re like tiny pieces of nature’s art. The beautiful colours inside these gems tell stories of elegance, uniqueness, and timeless beauty. It doesn’t matter if you know a lot about gemstones or if you’re buying jewellery for the first time; exploring the world of opal rings is like going on an adventure.

Opal rings come in different types, each with its own charm:

  • White Opals: These are classic and timeless. They have a light colour that’s a perfect background for the amazing colours that dance on the gem.
  • Black Opals: These are rare and luxurious. They have a dark colour that makes the vivid colours on the gem’s surface even more intense.
  • Boulder Opals: These are earthy and captivating. Boulder opals in rings show off unique colours against their natural ironstone host rock.
  • Crystal Opals: These are elegant and see-through. Crystal opals in rings let the colours shine through a clear or slightly see-through body.
