Fire Opal Gemstone Rings, Suggestions For A Fire Opal Ring
A fire opal gem is unlikely other opals that we know of, this intself makes a fire opal gem stone ring very unique and interesting. Not many people are actually aware of this type of opal gemstone, so this report will be of interest to many. A large portion of the opals consumed by the gemstone and jewelry industry are mined in Australia. An opaque pink variety of opal is mined in Peru. Given the importance of Australia as a producer of opal, it is often referred to as the 'Opal' country. A major producer of fire opal is Mexico and not many people are aware of this. While almost all opals are transluscent to opaque, fire opals can display an impressive clarity and transparency. A fire opal gemstone ring with a deep color fire opal can be low on transparency but, color shades upto a bright orange can be found with good to very good transparency. It is also common knowledge that most opals are cut in smooth cabachon cuts, faceted opals are not very common. On the other hand, fire opal gems are mainly cut in faceted cuts, the transparency adds glitter to the gem stone.
With reference to opals, terms like 'fire' and color 'flashes' generally refer to the play of colors exhibited by the gem stone. A name like 'fire opal' is therefore confusing since, you might expect the gemstone to have vivid color flashes.

As you get into the orange color range, you can expect better clarity and transparency for the gem stone. This changes for the darker reddish-orange color shades of the gem stone. These gems are transluscent rather than transparent. You will find that the deep saturated reddish-orange color fire opal stones are generally used in mens fire opal gemstone rings.
When it comes to opals, durability is an important topic that needs to be understood. With a hardness range of 5.5 to 6.5 (out of a whole 10) you should know that, a fire opal is not one of the sturdiest gems that you will come across. It is a good idea to keep your gold or 925 silver fire opal ring away from physical impact and hard objects. This applies to the ring when it is being stored too, do not bundle opal gemstone ring together with other jewelry.
Another important property of fire opal influences the durability of the gemstone. All opals have a small percentage of moisture naturally existing in them. It is this moisture that adds to the beauty of the gemstone. What this means is that, any loss of moisture will lower the beauty of the gemstone and your fire opal ring. The moisture in the opal can be affected by heated sources, detergents and strong solvents and chemicals. This is something that you will want to know when deciding on the durability of your gold or silver fire opal gem stone ring. It is true that your fire opal gemstone ring could be produced in gold or silver but, a small piece of information needs to be addressed. As a colored gem stone, fire opal looks awesome on both yellow and white metals. This means that a yellow or white gold gemstone ring with this stone would look equally good. When it comes to silver, you will need to know that all silver jewelry will tarnish after a while. The good news is that there are readymade solutions and polishing fabrics available to polish away tarnish from silver. You should however avoid very strong solutions since, the chemicals in these can affect the fire opal gemstone. In any case, avoid rhodium or any other plating on your 925 sterling silver fire opal gemstone ring. While jewelers claim that these are anti-tarnish treatments, the truth is that the plating will come off afer a while and leave your ring looking quite shabby. Regarding the choice of an 18k or 14k fire opal ring, there is a difference in hardness and 14k gold is a bit harder (therefore stronger) than 18k gold. A custom fire opal ring will give you better control over every aspect of the ring. Choosing a reputed custom made jewelry provider will also ensure that you get a good ring at a good price.
