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.

This ring is even more beautiful in person. The aquamarine color is a gorgeous light blue, and the ring is very dainty and cute. However, it does run slightly big so order 1/2 size down. I ordered as my wedding band, and could not be happier! Meri and her team were so helpful and kind, and kept in constant contact with me to provide updates on my ring while it was being made/shipped. Would absolutely order from here again!
A stone has already fallen out, every single one of them tiny and green-it looks nothing like the image portraying what I thought I was getting. I fell in love with this the second I saw it on the site and had to have it, even sent a message to seller in the box that gave the option...and heard nothing back and It clearly wasn’t read. I really hate to leave bad reviews but I’m pretty sad about this one. It was something I normally wouldn’t have bought for myself but wanted to for myself after a really tough breakup. I hope everyone else has much better luck, they seem to have from others reviews I’ve read. On a good note, I went down in sizing as recommended and it’s a perfect fit.
I purchased the Emerald Hidden Gems ring for myself and the craftsmanship is wonderful! My order was shipped promptly and I had excellent communication with Gardens of the Sun - The ladies truly take care of their customers are promptly reply to any inquiries. I am shopping for more hidden gems rings for myself already. The packaging is lovely and I really feel like I spoiled myself with this purchase. You have a repeat customer for sure <3
