Opal ring distinguish between opal rings.
There is a doublet opal and this is not a solid opal a doublet is a thin slice of crystal color glued and stuck to a dark background often a black or brown color background, when set in an opal ring or any jewelry is very difficult to know if it is a solid opal ring.
Hay a doublet opal ring is a lot cheaper then a black opal ring so I always recommend to buy your gemstone first as you can clearly view the back side, and then you know exactly what you have a solid or doublet as its very easy to distinguish between the two if not set in jewelry which covers the sides and back of the gemstone and make it much more difficult to distinguish.
The next thing is to find a good jeweler that understand this particular gemstone, I would look around and test a few to see if they have the more expense black opal rings and jewelry in their shop before consigning your gemstone to a jeweler goldsmiths, as this is truly a specialist field when it comes to setting such a gemstone in jewelry.
If the stone is not in the black group you can save about 30% of the purchasing price when it comes to opal jewelry. When you purchase a solid crystal opal ring or necklace or buy earrings-pendants-opal cufflinks-every opal jewelry on sale should have this discount if they are a responsible long-term business and the stones are not black opal.
Crystal opal rings very feminine and elegant and black opal rings can also be a ladies ring when purchasing jewelry this is a individual choice of fashion designs and the type of opal you want in your jewelry design, opal crystal comes with all the colors of the rainbow from top gem quality rings to commercial grade and semiprecious down to a very affordable gemstone. Don’t forget there is a lot of Ethiopian stones on the market at the moment and most of it does not compare to the quality of the much more superior Australian opal, so when purchasing an opal ring do not pay the same price for Ethiopian unless it is an outstanding gemstone like Australian stones. I have seen the supply of crystal opal in the last five years has mostly been coming out of the country Ethiopia.
Opal ring lots of the gem testing labs around the world really see a gem quality black opal ring.
The next we have Australian white opal that again can have all the colors of the rainbow or single colors, two colors three colors as this is the beauty when you buy a opal ring. We can have all the colors of all the gemstones red ruby’s blue sapphires white pearls in one opal ring. you will find there is a very good quality in this group of opal in commercial grade semiprecious, that jewelry can be mass produced in silver which is a very affordable gifts.
There is boulder opal from Australia again in commercial grade multicolored and lots of very low grade rings and jewelry manufactured, but can also have some very high-class dark opal and boulder crystal opal rings.
Matrix opal is a very low-grade that has been treated to intensify the colors which will make it more presentable for sale, and there is nothing wrong with treated gemstones as there are many around the world, they just need to be clearly marked treated-heated etc before advertised and sold. Most of the gemstone supplies like ruby’s and many more are heat-treated these day’s to bring out better colors as the resources in many cases today are depleted.
There is often different opinions from Lab associations when it comes to the black group of opal, this date if you are looking for a university course in Gemology, the best I found when it comes to gemstones specially black opal, is the University and lab testing in Bangkok was the cheapest and trustworthy and very good.
Opal Ring By Graham.
Last of all the triplet opal ring the only difference between a doublet an triplet is a third layer this time on top of the color transparent material that gives a high dome cabochon affect. The triplet and bolder and Mexican is the most affordable but at the moment there is some very affordable Ethiopian stones, purchase by the cutting factories in India being cut and polished along with the finished jewelry manufactured in a third world country, this makes the Ethiopian very affordable also. I do emphasize know what you’re buying where it comes from and the pricing structure of the particular opal and if you need a specialist master opal jeweler please contact graham opal ring specialist.
