Dendritic Opal Rings
Two pretty little Dendritic Opal and sterling silver rings that are the same only different.
The dendritic opals are irregularly shaped and have tiny branches and a bit of speckling as well. They are also a bit transparent letting you see all of the inclusions as well as faceted so they sparkle in the light as they move around. A final oxidized finish high lights all of the details.
Ring A, is framed flush to the stone with a heavily textured ring band. Ring B. has a small frame around the base of the stone, a lightly textured ring band and if you look close there is an orange high light with in the stone.
I have a few more unset Dendritic Opals still so if these sizes are wrong and you want a ring to fit you, please send along a message in the Contact Us section. Each opal will be slightly different from the next as they are here in these new jewellery pieces but similar in size.
Gemologists use the word “dendrites” to refer to tree-like markings on a gemstone or rock. When an opal or any gemstone displays tree-like inclusion patterns, gemologists call it a “dendritic” variety of that stone. In the spiritual community, dendritic opals hold potent magical properties, often used for healing physical, emotional, and spiritual ailments.
*Materials: Sterling Silver, .999 Fine Silver, Oxidized
*Measuring: Ring A: Size 6 1/2, stone size is .54" across the band x .49" top to bottom.
: Ring B: Size 7, stone size is .57" across the band / .63" with the frame x .53" top to bottom / .59" with the frame.
*Oxidization is not completely permanent! The earrings will change in appearance over time, especially with daily wear. While it has received a chemical application of Liver of Sulfur as a surface treatment, it will wear off in the high areas over time causing a patina that is unique to the piece.
