Moonstonel…
(478 items)

This is an amazing ring that I love...and I love Opals! This was a find!!! I love big rings and this was bigger than I thought. This beauty measures 7.5 grams and is solid 10k Rose Gold. The top measures 21mm x 16mm x 8mm high.

    The size of it! What a chunk! The Fire!
  2. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    vetraio50, I know!!! I could not believe it after I got it!!! At first I thought it was faux or glass Opal. Until I took it to the store for Cliff the Gemologist to take a look at the stone. What kind of Opal would you say it is? And where do you think it came from? I have no idea :0 When I wear it..the top is to big it slips to one side all the time...

    AmberRose, the colour is soo cool and when you look at it..the colours make you happy :) I am an Opal nut!
  7. valentino97 valentino97, 1 year ago
    Very pretty! As an October baby I love opals too.
  8. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    valentino97, I am collecting Opals for my youngest daughter Bella...she is the happiest 5 year old..always smiling :)
  9. Alfredo Alfredo, 1 year ago
    Opals? My birthstone! Actually, I have a matching pendant to your ring, which I have worn ever since my sister (also a Libra) gave it to me 20 years ago.
  10. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Alfredo, you do have a matching pendant? Let me know...if you ever want to part with it or do a trade! Contact me at maryaroch@yahoo.com if you are interested in ever trading. Do you know where she got it?
  11. Alfredo Alfredo, 1 year ago
    We got it at the now defunct New Haven Show in the early 90's. I pointed, she bought. I have a whole bunch of "jelly opal" jewelry which turned out to be Czech glass. Fine with me, since that is what I collect primarily.
  12. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Alfredo, how fun that would be to go a Show and look around! I love to search and discover! That's how I learned from hit and miss way back when. You are very blessed to have done that with your sister! Those times will never be lost :)
  13. Alfredo Alfredo, 1 year ago
    My first partner, born in Libra, dead in Libra.. My sister and I, Libras. My mother, her father, dead on the day of my sister' and my second partner's birthday: Oct. 22. When I celebrate my birthday, i order a cake for 6 other friends whose birthdays are also the same month. October is the busiest and most painful month of the year for me. Opals are a family obsession.
  14. Alfredo Alfredo, 1 year ago
    Do you know that it is said that everytime you lose an opal it takes away some potential harm from you?
  15. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    I am soo sorry! I too have an obsession with Opals for years! My daughter who is 5 is a Libra (Oct 12th) Her S%@&^ donor is a Libra( Oct 17th?) And I have written him off as dead beat! So I, in a way have a strange month of feelings in October and feel like there is a partial death that has taken place. Very uncomfortable month for me. He walked out when she was only 2-3 months old. I send out my sympathies to you and your family. Thank you for sharing.
  16. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    Alfredo, wow...I would hate to loose an Opal....that would not be good for me :)
  17. vintagejewel vintagejewel, 1 year ago
    Moonstonelover21 I to am single mom and my son is 2 dont you love those deadbeat dads out there! Its ridiculous !but I have such a respect for single moms raising their children we moms are all are stronger for it! Love this opal ring its amazing and its nice that us girls have jewels to make us feel better! Who needs men when you got rocks right!

    Looks to me like and Opal from Colorado, Clear see thru.. with a Brown Milky Quartz, It is a Beauty............keep it moist.. because opals Brake easy.
    Spray water, often..
    I keep my raw opals in water..
    I love them.

    Congratulations!

    vintagejewel, Thank you for all your kind words...I needed a pick me up today :) I agree we are stronger for it and now I have a full head of chest hair to show for it. I think I buy jewels to leave for my daughters as a heirloom gift that I know will always increase in value. So if needed this would pay for College that I know they won't or can't pay for. I feel like this is all I am able to leave to them. I hope we can meet sometime in the near future :) I live in Redondo Beach and willing to travel ")
  20. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    VintageArtJewelery, thank you for the update! I will look into more opals from that area!! In water...I use mineral oil on all my porous gemstones even cameo's and turquoise pieces...that locks in the moisture I was told...let me know your thoughts...Lee
  21. VintageArtJewelry VintageArtJewelry, 1 year ago
    If you are going to wear this Opal Ring ,, is better to get Porfessional coating for Opals, check with your Jeweler he will know which coat to use... Opals are very fragil.. I use My father Earrings once in while, and Yes! I did got them fix with a Coat of some Oil, not remember the name. , the Jeweler advise me to do it.
    Check it out,,, is worth to protect the opal...

    Chers!

    this looks like one of the most beautiful 'american' opals i've ever seen. american opals can be either from the usa or mexico. in general, they are inferior to australian opals, but this is exceptional. [but i am NOT an expert in this area!]
  26. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 1 year ago
    oops! i didn't mean to post that twice. the reasons why this is such a nice piece is the size, color, and distribution of the different colors inside it. [i forgot the name of the reflecting colors inside opals]
  27. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 1 year ago
    the sheets of color are called 'flashes'. this opal has excellent flash - particularly the green flash. the orangeish transclucence is what makes me think that it is an american opal.
  28. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    VintageArtJewelry, I am about to take it and have it coated ...to protect it...thank you xoxoxoxo
  29. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
    ho2cultcha, I believe it is American also...Deco era and do you think its gem quality?
  30. musikchoo musikchoo, 1 year ago

  31. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 1 year ago
