With its ethereal, earthy elegance, this one-of-a-kind Australian opal ring by Variance has been hand-wrought in the designer's Santa Cruz studio. The stacked nuggets of shimmering, iridescent opal are asymmetrically cut with smooth, angular facets and jagged edges. They are held in place with a sculptural setting of 18K yellow gold and attach to the oxidized sterling silver band. Its modern, style-defining allure makes it a stunning addition to any casual, curated jewelry collection.
