Opal Ring Boulder along with pendants, earrings, bracelets and various other jewelry, gain a lot of popularity when the feature stone is boulder opal. In this case, the opal ring is an example of an elongated oval set sideways on the finger with a two-point diamond at either end.
“boulder opals” have been mined in Australia for over 100 years in the fields of Western Queensland.
The stone is securely set in a bezel which means that the 18k yellow gold which is very malleable is actually rolled on to the stone itself, making it the type of ring that people like to wear just about all the time, would aspire to.
Opal ring boulder care
As far as the gold is concerned, there is not much problem if it gets a few scratches on it as long as they are not too deep, they can easily be removed with some household silver or chrome polish.
The idea is to get a piece of cotton rag, dip it into the past and apply it to the gold and briskly scrub it. Then allow it to dry and give it another polish with a clean cloth.
If the scratch is still there, just repeat the process. However, in the case of boulder opals, it’s wise to be a bit more careful. It’s better not to wear them in the garden or somewhere that they could come into contact with hard surfaces such as concrete or rocks. So girls, please wear a glove if you insist on keep it on during these menial tasks, or take it off your finger.
