this week in our fancy gray spotlight, we are reviewing the current fav in the studio, the opal starburst.
opals are near and dear to fancy gray, as it's our founders birth stone...so we might be slightly bias on this one.
the opal starburst is an eclectic inspired design style. we wanted to make it dainty around the large translucent opal, and accentuate it with 0.12ct total weight of round brilliant cut diamonds surround the opal in half moon fashion on both sides. finished off with a slender 1.2mm band.
a stunning 1.38ct natural translucent mexican opal is faceted in an oval diamond cut fashion. an incredibly interesting opal that caught our eye the moment we saw it. the milky yet cosmic complexion of the stone is mesmerizing and really pulls you in.
opal derives from the greek “opallios,” meaning “to see a change of color.” the stone is believed to counteract bad effects and bring prosperity, beauty, love, and romance in. opal gemstone benefits include enhancing joy in marital life.
where does our opal come from
the translucent oval cut opal in our opal starburst ring was mined in mexico. mexican opals date back to the ancient aztecs, nicknaming them the hummingbird stone.
most opals that hail from mexican mines are more transparent or translucent. we think that makes them extra special! it gives the opal a unique look as apposed to opals with opaque backgrounds we are used to seeing.
