Hand forged size 6.5 natural Ethiopian opal ring. The band is hand forged split shank oxidized sterling silver with a stepped bezel. The opal is a 2.10ct oval cut natural Ethiopian stone that changes from an oily black to black cherry with neon red fire in sunlight. A really nice mesmerizing and mystical stone.
All of my silver and solders are alloyed by me from fine silver bullion and pure copper so there are no toxic "mystery metals" in my jewelry. Every item is hand forged from molten metal by traditional hammer and anvil methods. The only 2 things on my workbench that a roman silversmith would not recognize are a torch and an Ipod................
I offer a limited lifetime (the limit is my lifetime :-) and I have a lot of good years left)service guarantee. If you lose or break a stone I will be happy to replace it for the price (the price I pay) for the stone and shipping.
I normally use insured International Economy Shipping which is 2-3 weeks to the US. Express shipping is available in shipping options. Express usually arrives in a week to the US.
Thanks for looking!
