I was familiar with yellow opal, having one from a cheaper online company, which just looked like a cloudy yellow stone. I ordered this ring for my ring finger and realized it was too big for the small finger. In that ring only the center stone had any of the fire exhibited in opals, the rest more like the cloudy opals I have.. I decided to give it a second chance and had it replaced with a lager size for my middle finger. The second ring is spectacular. The yellow toned stones are full of flashes of green, blues and pinks. I reduced my rating to reflect my thoughts about the first ring.clear1, MIWas this review helpful? 2 out of 2 found this review helpful
Not as Presented- dull gray opals
This is a gorgeous ring design that fits beautifully, feels great on the hand, but the opals are dull. In the video, Colleen clearly says that the black spinel version has "regular Ethiopian opals" while the diopside version has honey opal. Well, my spinel ring has dull, gray-yellow opals- NOT Ethiopian opals. It took 3 days of wearing it to finally see more color on a bright, sunny day outdoors. Even then the color is all peach & lime green. Indoor lights & cloudy days- they are still gray.SFChick, CAWas this review helpful? 0 out of 0 found this review helpful
