Opal Rings & Jewelry
Opal rings are very popular for their multi-colored beauty and opal is one of the traditional October birthstones. Opal jewelry is good for every day wear because the opal stone is normally cut into a low flat cabochon sitting nice and flush to the body. Antique opal rings have become popular recently as an alternative to more traditional rings for weddings. The opal stone is not very dense, so opal earrings and necklaces can be large in appearance but not too heavy feeling. Australian opals are the most common as many varieties are found on that continent but there are sources in many other geographic regions of the world as well.
