This new lab created opal wedding ring set is stunning. We inlaid the wedding set with some of the new lab opal we just received. This new lab opal has bright green flashes of color on a dark blue base color. The colors and flash of the lab opal mimic those of the best Lightning Ridge Australian opal at a much more affordable price. Both rings in the set are a comfortable thickness and width. The man’s band is 6.5mm wide at the top and the woman’s band is slightly narrower at 5.5mm wide. Both the man’s wedding ring and the woman’s are available for purchase separately if you don’t need a set. You can also purchase the set in hers and hers or his and his combinations. The green lab opal in these rings is very flashy and bold. We also have several other lab opal color options that are variations of blue-green and some options that are multicolor.
The high quality lab created opal we use in our rings has the same chemical composition as natural opal with the exception of water content. Natural Australian opal contains about 4% water and lab created opal contains no water. Instead, the water is replaced with resin
in lab created opal. The resin gives the synthetic opal more durability and helps to resist cracking. Laboratory grown opal gives you all the fire and colors of top grade natural opal at a much more affordable price with increased durability.
This set is available for purchase in our Hileman Etsy shop or our new Lab Opal Jewelry website. Please allow us 4 to 6 weeks to make your rings in your exact sizes.
