Iron Oxide

Classic Oval Opal Ring

$120

This ring is a dainty little sustainably-mined Australian opal set in a classic, sleek setting. This modern opal ring is a small piece of elegance to add to your collection of sustainable jewelry. The stone itself is a flattering oval shape measuring 7mm x 5mm. Available in size 6 - 8 (quarter sizes available)

Please note that all the opals are from the same lot but are unique stones and will look slightly different. Be sure to select your size at checkout and if in doubt err on slightly smaller, I can always make it bigger for you! If you don't know your size, here is a handy way to measure from home:

What makes these more sustainable opals? Most of the natural opals I use are from an Australian guy named Dag who has been in the industry for over 50 years. In an industry that is notoriously (and, I believe, purposefully) opaque about their sourcing, Dag's company Opex Opal mines in Australia and Brazil. The Boi Morto cooperative mine in Brazil, where these are from, was recently reopened after big changes were made to create safer working conditions and to be in compliance with environmental regulations.
