Opals are found all over the world, but most famously in Australia.  Today 95% of the world's opal market comes from this country alone.

Opal rings were popular throughout history right the way back to Medieval times.  The opal was popular with the ancient Greeks, Romans and even Aztecs.  William Shakespeare called the stone a "miracle" and said that it was "the Queen of all gems".  Opals were a particular favourite of Queen Victoria and hence became very much the fashion.  There are some wonderful second hand opal rings still available on the market today from this period at remarkably reasonable prices.  Take a look at our fabulous range of new and second hand rings below.  We guarantee you won't be disappointed!

Opals come in several variants.  Boulder opals come with abstract inclusions in a vast array of colours - they call to mind the wildness of a Picasso painting.  Each one is unique and they are usually cut according to their freeform shape to accentuate their beauty rather than cut to fit.  Light opals are the milky white stones inflected with fire we common think of when opals are talked about.  Black opals are an interesting variant, with the opal's fire set against a back drop of dark blue, grey, black or brown. 

Fire opals are a different type of opal altogether from those find in Australia.  The majority of fire opals come from Mexico.  They are unlike regular opals as they do not have multiple colours and are often quite clear, generally being yellow, orange or red in colour.

Second hand opal rings do require a little TLC.  Opal is somewhat soft, and so it is best not to wear these rings every day, but instead save them for special occasions.  They are also somewhat porous.  Opal rings will soon lose their lustre if you subject them to the washing up bowl - they must be kept dry and away from any chemicals or detergents.  They do, however, make for some of the most spectacular second hand rings on the market.  Please scroll down to take a look!
