Modern, earthy and sculptural, this one-of-a-kind Variance ring is a stunning echo of the designer's creative vision and flow. The slab of shimmering, iridescent Australian opal has angular, jagged edges and a surface of captivating colors. It is held by hand-wrought prongs of 14K gold and centered on the molten mixed metal band of oxidized sterling silver and gold. As unconventional as it is style-defining, let this be your signature ring.
