DETAILS

The Cat's Eye Nebula Ring in 14k White Gold: Named for the mysterious Cat's Eye Nebula, in the Draco Constellation. The entranceways of the Great Pyrimids of Egypt were oriented towards Draco, tracing our deep fascination with this cosmic phenomenon to the very roots of humanity. The central binary star of the Cat's Eye Nebula produces a diffuse, radiant glow, which is contrasted by the concentric rings, or halos, of stardust caused by pulsations similar to our own Sun's sunspot cycle. Thus is the cycle of birth and death on a grand scale. The dying star the formation of new life, new planets, new universes possible.  

Forty nine nearly perfect pavé set diamonds surround the bright, fiery, neon, modern opal in a double halo, with diamond dusting along the band, and a classic Victorian scroll pattern encompassing the gallery. 

The Diamond Dusted Eclipse in 14k White Gold: An element isolated from our collaborative Electric Fox Goddess Chest Piece, this beveled crescent moon motif is emblematic of old school tattoo design. The sweet and minimal 2 pt. white diamond elevates this design to higher levels of polished badass. Please see the Goddess Chest Piece for the whole story. 


CARE

Much like cats, opals love to be treated well, do not love water {except in rare cases}, getting wet, harshly scratched {as in gardening with your rings on}, dirty, or playing too rough. If you can wear an emerald (similar in temperament) and/or own a cat, opals may be for you! If your opal does get wet, the fire will seem to "die out" for approximately two weeks. Just let it dry out on its own.

No chemicals or harsh detergents can be introduced to the opal, however a yellow sunshine polishing cloth can brighten up the outside of the ring, or for lotion buildup, a gentle dishwashing detergent or pearl cleaner and soft cloth can be used to clean the inside of the ring, behind the opal and diamonds. Do this sparingly in order to keep the opal looking great ~ getting your opal wet once in a while isn't the end of the world. Constant exposure to say…salt water…would be too much. Horticulturalists, Marine Biologists, and Chemists ~ welo opals may not be for you. 

Regular inspections and tightening of prongs is necessary for all rings. If you see any loosening of prongs with a magnifying glass, or hear any rattling, tighten those babies right away.
