franklyn:  Oh my god that is gorgeous- so much color!!! It seems like older opals are way better quality than the newer ones I’ve seen. I dunno, but the old ones are bright vibrant & colorful whereas the new ones I’ve seen are not very colorful & pretty cloudy looking.  I love opals sooo much- I just wish they weren’t so soft or else I would have gotten those stones instead of a diamond in my engagement ring!

My goodness, that is so pretty!  I’d be so tempted to wear that all the time – why, oh why do Opals have to be so fragile!?  That ring is AMAZING!

That is super pretty!  I have a ring from my great grandma too, and it is just as special to me as my engagement ring (which I LOVE).  

I have always adored opals (they are my birth stone!), and wanted one for my ering (that antique one pictured is gorgeous), but changed my mind once I learned that they are one of the softest stones out there, and everyday wear is so likely to chip them that no one will even sell warrantees on them.  I ended up going with a yellow sapphire (love it- yellow is my favorite color), but had opals not been so fragile I would definitely be sporting a black opal ring right now.
