This oval shaped cabochon measures 10.0 x 8 x 5.2 mm and weighs 2.22 carat. The base is translucent white and the rolling flash of color is very nice. It shows no black dots, no cracks, and no matrix remains. This naturally mined stone comes from the ground in the country of Ethiopia. It is a stable, solid Opal and has had no treatments. Opal is a birthstone for October.
Suggested Designs for a Custom Order
This oval shape is an excellent choice for use in many, many styles of our design selection catalog, far too many to list here.
We encourage you to use your imagination while browsing the catalog. A custom ordered piece is normally ready for shipping in 14-30 days.
Metal choices for custom orders
We are happy to make you a custom piece of jewelry with Sterling 925 silver or 18K yellow gold. You may also request that we use 999 silver or 965 yellow gold. Furthermore, you may decide on a combination of our metals such as a gold bezel in a silver ring.
Your gems or ours
Select gemstones from our site or send us yours for your custom order. You may select the main stone plus the exact number of accent stones from right here. Please ask if you do not see exactly the gemstones you are looking for as we have thousands more in stock that are ready yet are unlisted.
Please note that we are happy to work with your personal stones but do not have any insurance to protect them. Consequently, the stones will be at your risk only. That said, it is not common that one breaks or is damaged in setting. I will provide the address along with special instructions on shipping your stones to us.
Custom cut gemstones
An essential part of our service is custom gemstone cutting. You may supply rough stones for us to have precision faceted or cabbed into the shapes that you desire. In addition, many gemstones that are already native cut will be improved in clarity and light return by a new precision cut.
Custom orders on gemstone cutting are normally ready in just two weeks.
Thailand’s Gem Markets
Being a gemologist in Thailand makes providing you with the right gemstones a snap. Furthermore, the gem markets here are nothing short of amazing! We shop in four different gem districts across the country and the variety is world class. Additionally, a precision gem cutter is working for our operation. Of course, we also source fine gemstone rough with our worldwide network of contacts in the mining business.
Since I love to travel and shop for gemstones I do act as a buyer’s guide in the gem markets for visitors that would like assistance. Often I can meet you at a gem market or even pick you up at the airport to get our adventure started.
