Australian Dendritic Honey Opal ring - Song of the Outback
Scenic Australian dendritic honey opal that I fell in love with at first sight. In person, this lovely stone reminds me of a miniature painting of the desert, in warm earth tones. It is set in hand fabricated sterling silver accented with hammer texturing, a silver vine and berries and a tiny carnelian stone that brings out the reds in the opal.
This stone is quite special, as it is old material with colors not often found in honey opal any more. The ring is a size 7 3/4, and the band is 12mm wide, just under 1/2 inch. The stone is low profile, and when combined with the wide band, is quite comfortable to wear, and doesn't turn on the finger. The stone is 37mm x 15mm, and is large enough to make quite a statement on your finger!
