Gem-quality fire opal is rarely seen. It first formed millions of years ago in ancient volcanoes in Mexico, when water and silica mixed with super-hot lava, and was then subjected to volcanic heat and pressure. But even when fire opal is eventually born, the unstable volcanic conditions make fire opals difficult to find, and especially difficult to find in quantities, shapes and sizes that are ready for jewelry.
But, despite this gemstone playing hard to get, we have one right here. The Incendio Fire Opal Ring is a single Mexican fire opal set in a gold-finished sterling silver ring with a bold, bending design, as if the ring is buckling from the heat of the stone. Showing the intense orange color that makes fire opal so coveted, the Incendio is a whole lot of heat for one ring. We’ve turned up the temperature even more with the fire of 74 DiamondAura® rounds. The only place we’ve cooled off is the price, selling the must-have Incendio Fire Opal Ring for $129.
