There is nothing at all average about this beautiful ring! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Jeanette Saunders, out of genuine sterling silver and a man made Opal stone. The stone is gently set in a hand cut bezel setting while hand crafted silverwork creates TWO scalloped leaf designs. Twisted silver and silver beads can be seen accenting the ring for a charming finish. The ring is stamped .925 (sterling) and hallmarked.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is the birthstone for October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
