The most beautiful opals come from Australia and Ethiopia. That’s where I started looking for stones to a special project. After a few weeks, I was able to make contact with a broker in possession of jewels from the legendary Velo mine in Ethiopia.
After some negotiation, I bought a beautiful, natural 5.5 ct opal from him, which I then sent straight to be certified, in order to confirm its authenticity. I sighed with relief when I found out that the stone is natural, and I gained a new supplier. The next stage was pure pleasure. The opal was framed in a ring decorated with an engraved floral motif, enriched with additional diamonds. The entirety was handmade in white gold.
