When I first started in the Opal Trade 50 odd years ago, the 12 x 6 mm Oval Shaped stone was extremely popular. The long ,narrow, Oval shape lent itself perfectly to Pendants, Drop Earrings but particularly for Ring designs. The shape naturally follows the line of the finger & looks elegant despite it’s size, compared to rings featuring wider stones. In the last few decades 12 x 6mm Oval has virtually disappeared from the Opal Jewellery market & is rarely seen, try Googling it. I’ve decided to feature this Classic Opal shape in a new range of Women’s Opal Rings. Here is the first of the Sterling Silver versions of 12x6mm Oval Rings. The designs come in both Claw Set & Rubbed in settings & most feature CZ highlights. The 14 ct & Diamond designs which will be next to be released, were very popular as Engagement rings in the past, particularly the Rubbed In version which is more durable for everyday wear.
