More About Angelique:

Warm opal bodycolor with a bluish cast.  Bright greens appear under certain lighting conditions.  It is unusual to see opal faceted.  Black spinels provide decorative contrast to the sterling silver shank.

 

 

About Opal:

  While many believe opal to come only in a traditional white hue, this common misconception cannot be more inaccurate.  With over 200 varieties of natural opal discovered so far, the historically referred "Queen of Gems" can come in a wide variety of colors- before the stone's famous "play of color" rainbow effect is even taken into consideration.  Over 90% of the world's opal is produced in Australia with other well-known deposits located in Mexico, Ethiopia, Brazil, and the United States.

Chemically, opal is an integrated combination of water and silica.  Water content in opal can range from 3% to 21% by weight, with average jewelry material ranging between 6% and 10%.  Because of this, it is advised to store your opal jewelry with care; safes and bank vaults can be notoriously dry.  We suggest storing opal in an airtight container along with a piece of water-moistened cotton when dry storage conditions are anticipated.  Some varieties are more resilient to harsh conditions than others.  It is safe to clean solid opal jewelry with warm water, mild soap, and a soft-bristled toothbrush.  Avoid chemicals, harsh abrasives, and ultrasonic cleaners.

 

About Spinel:

Spinel is a gemstone that naturally forms in a wide variety of colors.  Red is the most desirable color, followed by vivid cobalt blue, then vivid hot pink and bright, saturated orange.  Violet, purple, lavender, and black stones are most common.  While natural green spinel may possibly exist in special collections, it is common industry belief that all green spinel available to the market is either synthetic or tampered with (by inserting a thin disc of green glass between two pieces of colorless spinel).  We find it prudent to stand by this belief unless otherwise proven by a GIA certificate.  Black spinel can typically be told apart from other black stones with a super magnet due to its high iron content- it will be faintly magnetic.  Red spinel is often confused with ruby, though red spinel tends to be brighter and more light-reflective.

Natural spinel ranks 8 on the Mohs hardness scale, making it a great choice in jewelry for everyday wear.  Spinel jewelry can be cleaned in chemical jewelry cleaners as well as ultrasonic cleaners.  As with most jewelry, it is especially safe to clean with warm water, mild soap, and a soft bristled toothbrush.
