Opal is the October birthstone. Unique, multi-coloured gems that are never boring.
She’s a vibrant thing. Flashes of colour, dripping with that zest for life that makes raindrops dance. They said she came to Earth riding a rainbow, and you can see why. She’s your eye in every storm, never fails to make you smile. Both good and evil rush in her veins, and that’s why you chose her.
Opal helps you to let go of patterns fear, anger, negativity and self-harm. This gemstone represents innocence, purity and hope. It's also said to sharpen the mind and emotions and encourages you to better direct your energy.
This rough opal was mined in Lightning Ridge, Australia. The opal mining authorities and registries here are very particular about who they give mining licenses to. There are strict rules about safety and the size of the mines. Our Australian suppliers are members of the Opal Association of Australia, and assures us that these opals have been responsibly sourced.
We use all natural gemstones, so that each ring is different from the next in terms of play of color and stone size.
Opal is a rather soft and porous stone. Please be mindful with exposure to sunlight, soaps, lotions, chemicals and any cleaning agents as this may affect the stone.

I purchased this ring over a year ago, put it on, and haven’t removed it since. I literally wear it all day and night, during work, workouts, swimming, adventuring, and everything life has to offer. The band has some minor scratches, but it hasn’t bent (like so many of my other rings!), and the stones are still solidly in place. I love it.
I also had a great experience with customer service when the sizing wasn’t quite right (it fits a bit big according to sizing), but they sorted me out in no time and with no hassle.
10/10 would buy from these artisans again!!
The ring is better in real life than the website, though I was worried the emeralds would be a bit dull in color but no! It is vibrant and beautiful and everything was so easy.... From ordering to quick shipping. The only hard part was deciding which ring to get but now at least I know which one to get next :) Love my new ring and even my husband is impressed with it!
It took a while to arrive, because it was not available, although it didn’t show unavailable on the website and it was a bit disappointing, a lot smaller than it showed on the website. The package was the nicest part.
I've never had a more enjoyable experience with a company. I purchased this ring for my wedding ring and was concerned about the delivery time. Garden of the sun staff were extremely efficient when answering my emails. The ring arrived beautifully wrapped and was more simple and elegant than I could imagine. I am looking forward to wearing it for the rest of my life :)
