    I love the art deco ruby!!! Its so sophisticated. I have to admit I’m biased though because I love almost anything art deco!

    I love the ruby one. Not a huge fan of the opal one. It’s a little busy for my taste.

    Love the ruby – and then you won’t have something so similar when you receive the other opal.

    I prefer the Ruby center. If you don’t inherit the opal ring, you can purchase another opal ring later. Personally I would go for the ruby, and also while I see the similarities between the two opal rings i agree with pp that the opal and ruby ring is a little busy, and to me the opal and sapphire ring is cleaner and more elegant. Just my $0.02

    Opal is much too soft to be worn on a frequent basis. It has a rating of 5.5 on the Mohs scale. The ruby is an excellent choice; conundrum is a 9 on the Mohs scale.

    The ruby is gorgeous! Can I ask where it is from?

    ArmyWifey8.23 :  I just bought a brooch (2 white Opals making the body of the beetle, 2 pink tourmalines for the eyes, gold legs) and it’s so cute! So I am a bit drawn to the Opal ring. But that halo on the ruby ring is really elegant, I can’t look away. Get that one 🙂

    I love the opal ring, but opal is also my birthstone so I’m a bit biased haha. I think I recognize it, is if from brilliant earth? I think with the chance of inheriting your grandmothers ring I’d go with the second choice. Even if you don’t inherit it you may find yourself comparing the two or noticing things you like more or less about them.

    Ruby ruby! What about an opal necklace later on? Necklaces are slightly more protected. You would still have to take care of it but a necklace would definitely be easier and safer for an opal. Opals are so beautiful!
