Do you know what color the sun is? It may appear yellow to us, but that’s only because we’re viewing that big old ball of fire through the prism of our atmosphere. Astronomers agree that the sun actually radiates light in so many colors and on so many different spectrums that because it’s true color is pure white— the color you get when every possible color combines.
The genuine Ethiopian opal at the center of the Sunkissed Opal Ring works on a similar principle. Though it appears to be white, the rainbow of color that dances across the face of this incredible 1 ½ carat stone changes from every angle. Known as iridescence, this “play of color” is what makes opals so valued, and so valuable—Ethiopian opals especially. We’ve surrounded this particularly playful stone with 40 violet-blue Tanzanite rounds and 39 rounds of golden citrine, adding extra splendor and color. Much like staring at the sun, seeing the price of this ring at a regular jewelry store could burn your retinas irreparably, But, thanks to our longstanding relationships with trusted gemstone suppliers, we’ve kept the cost of this beauty down.
