Solid Opal Rings
Opal rings can be handmade with solid Opals or composite gems known as ‘triplets’ or ‘doublets’. A triplet is a thin slice of Opal which is sandwiched between a slice of darker gemstone such as Onyx to enhance the color flashes of the gem and a slice of clear gemstone such as crystal to increase the perceived size of the gem. A doublet is a slice of Opal set against a darker gemstone such as Onyx or often Boulder opal. When a doublet is created with Boulder Opal, the gem is comprised of 100% genuine Opal however is not considered a solid Opal. We only use solid Opals and Doublet Opals in our genuine Opal rings. Every doublet Opal ring is clearly described as such in its description.
