Lab Opal Color Options
Here are photos of some of our lab created opal color options and examples of the opal inlaid and polished so you can see the finished look in a ring or pendant. You will see opal color options ranging from blues and greens to more outrageous reds and purples. We even have some lab created opals that mimic the fire and color of some of Australia's best black opals. Some of the opal is cut from the top rather than from the side as shown in the photo of the opal rough. We do our best to vary the cutting angles and selectively use the best sections of the opal to maximize the fire and beauty of the opal while minimizing the uniformity of the pattern. Skilled cutting makes the lab opal look more like natural opal. You can see from the examples that the look of the opal can vary slightly from slice to slice of the opal and the orientation of the inlay also makes a difference in what color is more dominate. The best way to capture the play of colors in the opal is with video so check out our ring videos to see the opal colors in action. MORE OPAL COLORS AND EXAMPLES ARE COMING AS WE BUILD OUT THIS PAGE!
