Queen Victoria deserves a big "thank you" from us modern day opal lovers. She did a lot to make them popular again and had a nice collection of fine opals herself. She gave them as gifts to her daughters and friends. Pictured here are some examples of small Victorian gold and opal rings. Some display just a solitary opal and others combine opals with peridot, tiny rubies or garnets. My favorties are the clear, sometimes called water opal, rings on the right. They are full of fire with a clear base.

    What a great collection - thank you for sharing. Just wonderful! This is my birthstone - prefer opaque. Also have enjoyed the rock/opal stones from Australia offered at Tucson last 5 yrs or so - a completely different opal w/the brown companion stone around. Rugged but w/a beautiful iridescent firey streak.

    I like the Mexican fire opals as well with the deep orange coloring and
    green fire. It is great opals are your birthstone.
