1.70 ct tw Ethiopian Opal & Black Spinel Sterling Ring
This ring is beautiful......the opal has so many beautiful colors showing. Maybe I got a good one...some of the reviews said theirs was dull....mine was not dull but very pretty. I am not too crazy about black spinel but with the opal the combination is very pleasing. Hopefully, the prongs are going to hold and I won't lose the stone like some others said they did. Happy so far!
Stone fell out when 30 days had past
I never even had a chance to wear this outside the house before the stone fell out. Fortunately, I did find the stone. However,I have to pay for someone to fix the ring. This is not the first time this has happened. I am not hard on my jewelry. I love QVC's jewelry selection. Unfortunately, it is time to purchase jewelry from stores that cover repairs for free because they guarantee their workmanship. Otherwise, the ring was pretty while it lasted.
I just received this ring today, and am sooooo pleased! The spinel and opal are a great combination. My opal is gorgeous! The spinel is a beautiful frame for it. I have small hands, and this ring looks great on my finger. I would recommend this ring to everyone! Great price....beautiful ring!
This ring is nothing short of amazing! Each opal is unique and of great quality. I actually now have more than one because the primary flashes in one are green and in the other they are blue. I love them both! I've had many compliments on this ring from my friends. The style and fit are great. I highly recommend this ring to anyone looking for a stand-out Ethiopian opal ring at a great price.
One Of The Most Beautiful Opals I've Ever Seen
This opal is just beautiful!!! I have lots of opals but this one is excellent!!! The black spinel surrounding the opal is perfection!!! Just a fantastic ring!!!
Disappointed by stone
I did not return this ring but I have only worn it once. My center stone is a cloudy nothing, and the prongs on it are too large, The spinels are very nice but they don't make up for the lack-luster opal. Can't recommend it even at this price.
Wanted To Love It
I waited a long, long time to get this ring. When it came, I could hardly get it opened fast enough. Sadly, I was put off by the quality of the center stone. Mine was the color of dirty dish water and had no play of color in it at all. The style of this ring, and adding black spinel really made this a #1 hit to me. Unfortunately, it went back. Apparently others got rings with plenty of color. I wish I had.
Dainty, but priced well.
Beautiful, but delicate. The prongs are very thin, but I love it, so it's a keeper. I may take to my jeweler and have the prongs replaced with something more substantial. The contrast is simply lovely!
worth the wait
When I took the ring out of the box, the stone didn't look like much as I was in low light. I thought... What do you expect for that price? I figured I'd send it back. I'm so glad I didn't give up on it. Upon further review, the stone is stunningly beautiful! Better than the picture.
So many colors flashing and moving within the stone. The black spinel looks beautiful with it. I couldn't be more pleased. I think it runs about 1/2 size larger in size7.
The stone on this ring is just gorgeous! Being an October baby and always on the hunt for a stunning opal, this hit the mark - just full of fabulous color! The ring fits true to size. Sadly, this ring has too high of a contrast with the opal set in the black spinal for me to fully enjoy; the spinal deadens the beautiful opal. Returned :(
Very disappointed! :(
I received this ring this morning and I am returning it this afternoon! Let me say the opal is beautiful! Lot's of color play in every kind of light :) but the black spinel is small and the ring looks cheaply made too me I'm sorry! :( I couldn't get past it! So for this reason I am returning it and hopefully someone on waitlist will enjoy it. :)
Not Sized Correctly/Skimpy Sliver
I ordered this in my normal size 7 and it fits like a 7.5 size ring. The center stone was beautiful and the setting isn't large,so I loved the way it looked on my hand, but it was real loose and spun around and toggled back and forth. Just like the turquoise one it has a lack of substance in the silver and no undercarriage to support the weight of the top. I want to order it in a size 6 to see if that will fit, but once again that would make the ring near $20 more due to return fees on this one and the 6 if it was too tight.
QVC, you need to make sure the designers PUT a substantial silver setting on gem stone rings because we are paying more anyway just to send them back!!!!!
