ring has earned it great respect and appreciation across the
globe. Designed after an intense
study into the history and meaning of this historic jewel,
the Kaisilver claddagh ring is today accepted as the best rendition
of this 375 year old jewel. A claddagh opal ring is a great option
for lovers of the opal gem stone. You will find that most offerings
for opal gemstone claddagh rings are for rings with white opal gems.
There is no clear explanation for this but it is presumed that, not
many jewelry lovers are aware of opals with other colors.
Opal gemstones are available in white,
green, pink, orange and black. These are the prominent colors in
opal gemstones. Most of the opal mined comes from Australia so much
so that, the country is sometimes referred to as the 'opal country'.
There is one opal named fire opal which is
unique in many respects. This opal is mined far away from Australia
in Mexico. The color can be a pale yellowish-orange to a deep
saturated orange with a reddish color shade. While most opals are
cut in a smooth (cabachon) shape, fire opals have good transparency
and can be faceted to show extra glitter and lustre. The image below
shows a fire opal claddagh ring in white gold. The color of this gem
is a bright orange the transparency is very good. Darker shades or
orange fire opal gems tend to get lower on transparency and show
shades of red. Kaisilver opal claddagh rings are fully custom made
and this includes custom gem cutting. You can therefore specify the
color shade for the gem in your claddagh fire opal ring.

White opal claddagh rings are not very
rare but, understanding the white opal gemstone will help you choose
the right ring. Like all opals white opals have a small amount of
moisture in them. It is this moisture that plays a part in
adding beauty to the gemstone. Observe a good white opal
and you will notice tiny specks with rainbow like colors.
White opals show these specks quite clearly and white opals which do
not show these look quite drab and dull. When you pick a claddagh
white opal ring make sure that your ring shows these color flashes.
Jewelry lovers generally believe that white opal should be set in
yellow gold. It is thought that setting a white gem in white gold
will give the jewel a placid appearance. This might be true if you
get a white opal claddagh ring with a gem that is void of
these color specks, such opals look more like pieces of plastic and
lifeless. Ideally such junk white opals should not be used in any
type of jewelry, so make sure that you don't pay for these. Below is
a great example of how good a white opal claddagh can appear when
produced in white gold.
