14K Gold Boulder Opal Tony Malmed Ring
This special hand-hammered ring is made with a boulder opal and 14k gold by the Sante Fe jewelry designer Tony Malmed.
This opal has a vibrant multicolor flash that is dominated by turquoise and sandwiched between a brown matrix. It has an organic design that reveals the layering of the stone, also resembling the river-way of an abstracted Southwestern landscape.
The opal is bezel-set, approximately 5 carats, and measures 17.03 x 12.85 mm. The ring is a size 8 and it weighs 12.6 grams. It's marked with "TM" and "14K".
Tony Malmed is known for selecting the finest of stones, creating inspired pieces that are one-of-a-kind. He’s adopted ancient practices in his own work, like the hand hammering of this ring.
This a unique and beautiful ring that would make an excellent gift of addition to your jewelry collection.
The ring was as impressive as the picture on your site. I am very happy with it, as I have been with my other purchases.
