I'd like to buy a firey and large-ish stone for a ring, as a present. I've been thinking about getting a lab grown opal, so I can get something impressive looking in budget (the recipient is on board with this ). Looking in jewellers in Glasgow, they have synthetic opal jewelry that I couldn't tell apart from natural, but the price is almost the same as natural too. Are there better places to shop online? If we're only talking maybe 10% discount, I'd rather get a natural stone... Thanks!
