  • About the gemstone: Sterling opal is a lab grown 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.
  •  Other gemstones: if you see a different round gemstone from our 14K orbit ring shop listing or another shop listing, we can make this design with a different gemstone cabochon. Please use our contact page to inquire another options. 
  • As noted on our FAQ page: soft stones like opals should not be exposed to water, oils, perfumes, or chemicals repeatedly. Please take care of your jewelry as it is an investment. Prong set jewelry should be removed prior to sleeping, bathing, swimming, gardening, exercising, etc. (as prongs can catch on hair, bed linens, clothing, or be bent and/or the stone could be damaged as with certain types of exercise). Steel is harder than gold, so please remove your rings before lifting weights, gardening, or whatever other adventures that may damage your ring. 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.
