Opal Rings Information:
Photos do not do justice to the color play displayed by opal. As an opal is moved, the colors can flash, sparkle, roll or change. Different lighting conditions often result in different hues being displayed. These factors make opal a unique, beautiful gem! Opal rings demonstrate the colour play of opal because the colors flash and sparkle with movement of the hands. In my opinion, it is the infinite variety of color and pattern that makes opal special. Opal has more variety than any other gem and is therefore suited to a wide range of different tastes and preferences. Opal has two levels of color, the base (or background) color and the pattern color (seen as a play of color within a distinctive pattern). Base color ranges from crystal clear through translucent blues or greens, to opaque, pearly white and darker colors through to black. The pattern colours seen overlying the base color of opal can roll, flicker or change as the opal is moved. These colours have great variety, from pastels to bold hues that can cover the entire spectrum of color from red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. With so much variety, it is understandable that there is an opal out there for everybody! – Laszlo

Care of opal inlay rings
All opal in Laszlo’s Opals and Jewelry opal inlay is solid, untreated natural opal mined in Australia. The crystal opal in Laszlo’s inlay jewelry is inlaid precisely into the finding using modern inlay techniques, highlighting the natural beauty of the opals.
A little care is required to maintain opal inlay jewelry, in turn providing many years of enjoyment. Opal is a durable precious stone, but can chip if dropped onto a hard surface such as concrete. Avoid repeated exposure of inlay jewelry to chemical cleaners and strong detergents which may, over time react with the opal inlays.
Opal inlay rings should not be re-sized, as the process of enlarging the ring’s band may exert unacceptable pressure on the opal resulting in damage to the stone.
Opal jewelry can be cleaned with warm water and a little mild detergent and rubbed with a soft cloth.
Sizing of Opal Rings
It is highly recommended that sizes for opal rings be determined using a professional style metal ring sizer as used by the jewelry trade. This will ensure an accurate measurement of finger size. Although this may be difficult when purchasing as a surprise gift, it is better to be sure of the correct size and avoid the inconvenience of exchanging the ring because of a measurement error. Plastic measuring devices should be avoided because they can either warp or stretch over the joints of a finger causing inaccurate measurement. Another accurate method of determining finger size is to use a jewelers ring measuring mandrel to measure an existing ring. This method is preferable to measuring ring width and calculating size because rings can warp over time giving a different measurement across each axis.
Polished opals are weighed in carats. 1 carat = 1/5th of a gram. (1 gram = 5 carats).
