Lightning Ridge Solid Black Opal Copper Ring, size T 1/2, US ring size 10
If you looking for something completely different this might be for you! It is a hand cut and hand finished small Australian Lightning Ridge Black Opal which has been set in a handmade copper ring and electroformed in copper to create an unusual and textured ring.
Every piece of copper jewellery is sealed to help keep its finished appearance and prevent any possible skin discolouration for a much longer time, however in time this may wear off. To extend this process we advise to keep your jewellery clean, keep it in its velvet bag ( we supply this) when not worn and remove whilst sleeping/ showering. A coat of clear nail varnish or jewellery lacquer painted on the inside ( or part that contacts the skin) will help if the sealant wears off and discolouration starts to occur. Enjoy your piece of original copper jewellery!
It will eventually change colour tone, as copper always will but we believe it adds to it attraction and will grow with you. We have allowed the copper on this ring to oxidise first to give a 'antique' copper finish before sealing.
The photos were taken under different lights to show you the different tones under different conditions. The opal measures approximately 0.7 cms X 0.5 cms and has flashes of blue, green, mauve, orange and pink. The ring is a large size. UK size T 1/2. US size 10.
