Fire Opal & Diamond Ring

About

The heat of a magnificent Mexican fire opal is balanced by the icy beauty of diamonds in this tempestuous ring. Weighing 2.55 carats, the oval-cut opal displays the signature bold tangerine orange hue for which this unique stone is known. Encircled by .78 carats of round brilliant-cut diamonds and set in 18K white gold, this stone reveals all of its best qualities.

Thought to bestow courage, stamina, will-power and energy, Mexican fire opals are singular among the world’s opals for their bright and almost uniform color. Revered since pre-historic times as symbols of the most ardent love, the gem was believed to have been created in the waters of life. The most beautiful of these rare gems are found in Mexico, and in the Pre-Columbian era, the Mayans and Aztecs incorporated it into their most prized artworks and figurines.
