I knew enough to keep my wits about me in the maze of Addis Ababa's Merkato, the largest open-air market in Africa. I was looking for something extremely special amongst the mesmerizing blur of movement and color, hustle and bustle, bargains and wonders. I knew she deserved something that stood out from the crowd. And I knew that even amongst the madness of the Merkato, items of real quality can call out and command your attention. So when I saw a piece of genuine Ethiopian opal doublet, I knew I had to get it. In my haste, I almost forgot to haggle.
If she turns heads, then she deserves something that's equally impossible-to-miss. The Gihon Opal Ring features a stunning 1 ½-carat Ethiopian opal doublet set in magnificent sterling silver and surrounded by brilliant, lab-created DiamondAura® rounds that burn with more fire than mined diamonds. Paired with the 5 carats in the matching Gihon Opal Earrings this ring is sure to catch the eye of every passerby. But she won't even notice them looking, because once you give it to her, she'll only have eyes for you.
