Prices as pictured, alterations will change metal and diamond weights. Call 1-800-348-4499 for a quote for your gem or one of ours. Allow 3 weeks for production. Priced in 14 kt. gold with ideal cut diamonds that are colorless and Eyeclean. Two shank variations shown.


Welo, Ethiopia opals were discovered in 2008. The quality is finer than any we have purchased from Australia. Welo opals are generally considered to be the highest quality opal. Most welo opals are hydrophane, meaning it can soak up water. If placed in water the material will become glass clear and when removed it will get milky. After several days the material will return to its original beauty. What this means is that you should not swim with it, while washing your hands will have very little effect. The benefit of this material is that the riskiest part of traditional opal from other sources is drying out and cracking, called crazing, whereas this material will not craze from drying out. One way to identify hydro-phane opal is its characteristic of feeling sticky to your finger or when placed on your tongue. This characteristic also affect the weight which can change with humidity. Wearers of hydrophane welo opals want to remove jewelry before applying hairspray, lotions, hair dyes, etc. as this can ruin your opal. Toughness is another characteristic that Ethiopian opal out performs other locations. Tests by G.I.A. have shown that this opal is capable of withstanding drops to concrete from up to 4 feet with no damage. We do not recommend testing this but we have seen that this material is tougher then the Australian counterpart.
