485.00

A one of a kind piece in our new line, FINE COLLECTION (handmade fine jewelry, always made with Knot & Splice's signature high-quality, American stones)

  • size 7 (no resizing)
  • approx. 2 mm wide x 1mm thick smooth handmade 14K yellow gold rectangle style band; work hardened strong for a lifetime of adornment (please wear with love and follow our care instructions on the FAQ/Policies page).
  • handmade solid 14K yellow gold bezel handmade to fit the individual stone (the back of the bezel is solid gold—not open or cut out)
  • The back is stamped with the maker's initials "NM" and "14K" 
  • stunning kite cut Sterling lab cultured opal—Sterling opal is a cultured opal made in Arizona. Although Sterling is a cultured opal, it is made in a lab using silica nano and mono particles (the same way a natural, mined opal is made in the earth). Under a microscope, GIA confirms that Sterling opal has the same characteristics and composition to natural opal, making it a true, GIA certified synthetic opal. No colorants are used in the stone—the process itself is a natural process and the color you see in the stone is from light refraction (not dye). Developed by the inventor of the Zachary treatment (a stabilization method for natural turquoise) and the owner of the Sleeping Beauty mine, Sterling opals have been in the making for many years. The process of growing the opals is lengthy! Knot & Splice is truly honored to be using these high-quality webbed opals in our works as American-mined opals are extremely rare (very expensive) and often brittle when available. Read more about Sterling opals and see their GIA report here.
  • handmade in the USA by Nicole Jo Melton
  • There is only one ring like this. You will receive the exact pictured ring. Please see current processing times for all items on our FAQ/Policies page. We do not offer resizing.

Please note: While every effort is made to photograph the items to be an accurate representation, photography and computer monitors have limitations and differences. Colors and brightness may vary on different devices. I believe these pieces look so much prettier in person when held in the hand and admired by the eye (I've also been told this many times by Knot & Splice customers). I hope you're delighted when you receive your special piece in the mail.
