All our opal rings are fitted with natural non synthetic gems. They will not fade or lose color.
The opals in these rings are genuine
Unfortunately a lot of opal either sold online or in jewelry shops is not genuine but can be very difficult to detect. Laboratory created gems are everywhere and some unscrupulous dealers will not let you know.
another problem is that some opal comes from unreliable fields and will either crack or lose color when put in water.
