This unique men’s ring features a black opal set in a hand-engraved, textured yellow gold band. It was made for a client from Kirkland, WA for whom we also made a pendant. It was built around the elegant and asymmetric gemstone at its center, and the organic details in the band complement this perfectly.
If you’d like to borrow elements from this piece to help design your own one-of-a-kind ring, our team can help. We’ll walk you through the custom design process from start to finish, working hard all along the way to ensure you come away with exactly the piece you were envisioning. And we can complete a custom design project for you even if you live too far away to ever visit our Bellevue, WA showroom personally. Design Your Own Ring
The black opal at the center of this ring has a lovely organic shape, with one side more rounded, while the other has a straighter edge. It’s held in a four-prong setting made of 18k yellow gold that seems to grow up around the edges of the stone as the natural extension of the organic band.
Although its name suggests something darker, this beautiful stone actually exhibits a wide range of colors including rich reds, deep blues, and vivid greens, depending on the angle it’s viewed from. A similar opal is used in the pendant we also made for this client, and this creates a special link between the two pieces.
The overall shape of this band is squared, although it’s dominated by the organic patterns and textures that are engraved on its surface. The swirling designs introduce floral elements, building on the asymmetry of the center stone to create an intriguing and beautiful network of graceful lines.
In order to accommodate the large opal at the top but still provide a comfortable fit, the shank tapers quite dramatically, angling down sharply towards the bottom where it becomes a relatively narrow, but still textured band. It is a truly dramatic and elegant piece, and we can work with you to customize it in any way you choose until it’s the perfect reflection of your vision.
