Ever have one of those days? Full disclosure--this ring is marked down 40% because at the very last moment while setting the opal, my tool slipped and I cracked the opal surface! It is not very noticeable to the naked eye, but the macro lens on my camera shows it up pretty well! So decide for yourself whether it's too much of a bother or not, but I decided to list at a sweet discount because I just liked the ring and stone too much not to. The bezel and gold accents are 18k gold and the argentium silver (slow to tarnish) has been given a soft finish. Fits like a size 7.
