About Sterling opal: Sterling opal is a cultured opal made in Arizona. Although Sterling is a lab grown 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 dyes or colorants). 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.
About New Lander: New Lander is a mine located in Nevada, USA near the long-gone Lander Blue mine. Most of the gemstones that come out of New Lander are a mixture of variscite and chalcosiderite (the only way to tell the difference is to send off each stone to GIA for a gemology report). These coveted stones are a mixture of chalcosiderite or variscite which are "close cousins" to turquoise in the mineral family. Known for it's beautiful patterns and a variety of colors, these tiny cuts still have so much personality (not common for cabochons cut this small).
  • Approx. .03 ct (2mm) accent conflict-free salt and pepper diamond (round brilliant cut; salt and pepper diamonds contain carbon inclusions that give it a "salt" and "pepper" look; they are not transparent white diamonds, but many people prefer the included look these days! these vary slightly in size, hence why the ct weight is approximate)
  • As noted on our FAQ page: soft porous stones like opal and turquoise should not be exposed to water, oils, perfumes, or chemicals repeatedly. Please take care of your jewelry as it is an investment. Your handmade rings should be removed prior to sleeping, bathing, swimming, gardening, exercising, etc. Please use common sense and take good care of your ring and it will last you a lifetime.

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.
