Black opal ring
Black opal ring made from recycled sterling silver with a beautiful dark gem from Ethiopia. This opal has a deep black colour with red or bright green hues. Each stone is unique.
The black opal measures 5 mm and is set on a hammered silver band. The ring looks amazing as a solitaire but if you prefer a more daring look you can get the full stack. Because stacking rings are fun. We also have a super lovely matching necklace.
These rings some in three sizes- Small (6.5 US), Medium (7.5 US) and Large (8.5 US). If none of these fits, get in touch, and we will make one in the requested size within two weeks.There is no extra charge for this.
Q & A
What does it mean that the silver is recycled?
We use recycled sterling silver because we believe that is is the right thing to do. By lowering demand for newly mined metals we keep more for future generations.
Is all silver used recycled?
Yes. These rings are made from 100% recycled sterling silver.
What does handmade mean?
We make most of pieces by hand using either silver grain, sheet or wire that we then cut, shape, melt and cast and polish by ourselves in our workshop in Brighton. We sometimes use a UK-based casting company that uses recycled and Fairtrade certified silver and gold but we would generally tell you that in the product description. This means that our pieces are all made in the UK. Far too often, when buying 'Made in the UK' jewellery you would find that it is made in Thailand or China and then packaged in the UK. We have nothing against stuff made in Asia but we think that it should be labelled properly.
