Yellow Gold Ring with Blue/Green Opal and White Diamond
LID-112 14kt Yellow Gold Blue/Green Opal with .025cts of White Diamonds Size 6 3/4 Christopher Corbett design
This is a handcrafted ring by Christopher Corbett. It features blue-green opal inlay. The opal has been set vertically. All the opal was cut by hand. Additionally, these pieces were set by hand. Accenting the opal inlay are white diamonds. The white diamonds have been bead set. Both the opal and the diamonds are set in 14kt yellow gold.
We feature several designers here at the gallery. One of our favorites is Christopher Corbett. Christopher was born in Arizona, but spent his summers as a child in Jackson Wyoming. In high school Chris discovered the world of jewelry. He started working with turquoise and silver. This graduated to working in opal and, eventually, fine gemstones. We showcase his opal inlay collection.
Christopher uses top-quality crystal opal from Australia. This includes material from the coober-pedy, Andamooka and Mintabie mines. Additionally, he uses some of the best blue-green colors in his designs. Also, he incorporates a red opal in his “rainbow” designs. Most opal inlay nowadays is set shallow with micro-thin slices. Christopher purposely uses larger slices. To further accentuate the quality he makes sure to set the opal deep into the gold. All of the opal is set in 14kt yellow gold.
14kt gold is a great metal for an active lifestyle. It is a harder alloy than 18kt gold. This results in less scratches and, therefore, less polishing. In comparison to 18kt, which is 75% gold, the 14kt has 58.5% gold. To that end, it is a lighter weight alloy than platinum or 18kt. 14kt gold looks great when it is brushed or polished.
With the Corbett collection we offer earrings, pendants and rings. Pendants do not include the chain. Rings are made to order. Pricing will depend on the design and current price of gold and opal. Lastly, if we are out-of-stock on a particular design it can be made to order. This usually takes about 4-5 weeks.
