You’ll find another one that “speaks” to you! Good luck!

That stinks!  I’m sorry.  I bet you will find another one you love more.

That’s a bummer. Maybe you can find something simular like This.

Just keep looking, you’ll find the right one.

Everything happens for a reason. Maybe the opal one would have been perfect then one day broke on you and you would have been crushed. You will find another and you will love it even more 🙂 Good luck

It sounds beautiful! Are there any other JCP stores near you?

I love opals, they are one of my favorite stones! Look on ebay and etsy for vintage opal rings. There are some really ugly ones, but sometimes you can find some really gorgeous ones as well!

Looks like i’m gonna be the party pooper, but opals are very soft… you’d have to take it off when you did dishes or cooked or anything at all with your hands so you don’t scratch or crack it… 🙁

@WhiteWedding:  I was going to say the same thing.  Opals are gorgeous, but not a good choice for an ering.  It wouldn’t hold up over time.  If you remember the design, you could get something similar custom made, preferably in a more durable stone.

I’m going to echo that opal is a really soft stone, as well, but if you have your heart set on it, check out Kay’s opal rings!

@abirdword:  I was just going to say the same thing.  I had an opal ring that barely got any wear (I got it in high school) and I had a lot of troubles with it.  Because opals are so soft, they are susceptable to weather – heat, humidity and cold.  That’s why you hear of opal stones falling out of rings a lot.

The right ring will come along.  Be patient.  FWIW I would not get an opal as an e-ring.

Sorry that happened 🙁 I believe everything happens for a reason and that you if you didn’t get this ring it means you’re meant to get one that is even more perfect and “you” than that one was!

@allyfally:  That’s true, but they’re not chemically identical, and I still wouldn’t trust them to hold up to years of wear, at least not on a ring you’re planning on wearing all the time.
