History of Opal

Opal is a beautiful and unique gemstone with a long and fascinating history. Opal jewelry was very popular in ancient Rome and Greece. The word “Opal” comes from the Greek word “opallis,” meaning “a gemstone that looks like the eye.” 95% of the world’s opals come from Australia, making opal the national gemstone of Australia. Historical records indicate that the first opal ring also came from Australia. In the early 18th century, opal was listed as the gemstone for the zodiac sign Libra. In 1902, the GIA’s official birthstone list named opal as the birthstone for October, and in the 1920s, the AJA included opal as the gemstone for the 14th wedding anniversary.

Types and Colors of Opals

Opal is categorized into precious opal and common opal. Common opal does not exhibit the unique play-of-color effect that is characteristic of precious opal. Opal comes in various colors, including white, black, blue, green, red, pink, orange, yellow, colorless, and brown. Black opal is the rarest, followed by red opal, pink opal, orange opal, and yellow opal. Green and blue opals are more common, with white opals being the most common.

When Was the Opal Ring Most Popular?

Opal rings were especially popular during the Victorian era (1837-1901). Queen Victoria had a particular fondness for these gemstones and frequently wore opal jewelry. Opal rings became one of the most popular jewelry pieces of that time.

Styles of Opal Rings

Opal rings come in a variety of styles, with the most common styles including:

Solitaire Rings: Solitaire moonstone rings, featuring a single opal stone set on the band.

Multi-Stone Rings: Multi-Stone Moonstone Rings are characterized by an opal larger than 1 on the band, consisting of at least 2 or more stones, which can be of the same or different shapes and sizes.

Cluster Rings: A cluster moonstone ring is similar to a multi-stone moonstone ring, they differ in that a cluster moonstone is an arrangement of multiple smaller opals that form a certain pattern, whereas a multi-stone moonstone ring will have one larger moonstone as the main stone, with the others sort of being side stone accents. 

Halo Rings: The halo moonstone ring continues the vintage style design with a larger moonstone as the main stone, surrounded by a circle of diamond accents to form a circle of light to enhance the ring's luster, which is the closest thing to a Victorian style ring.

The Symbolism of Opal Rings

Opal rings are often considered symbols of hope, loyalty, and purity. They are also believed to bring good luck and protection.

Which Finger Should an Opal Ring Be Worn On?

You can wear it on the finger that fits best. If the opal ring is an engagement ring, it traditionally goes on the left hand’s middle finger, symbolizing responsibility and loyalty. If it’s a wedding ring, it should be worn on the left hand’s ring finger, representing marriage and commitment. If the ring is simply for decorative purposes, you can wear it on any finger you like.

Is the Opal Suitable as an Engagement Ring?

Yes, opals are suitable as engagement rings. In traditional conception, we should choose diamonds for engagement rings, or more famous gemstones, such as sapphires, rubies, etc. Nowadays, more and more people are looking for something different, and they prefer something that is meaningful to them rather than following the tradition, so our first point of consideration when choosing one should be our own preference, after all, as traditions may not always meet your needs.

Care Tips for Opal Rings
