In case you don''t remember, over the winter break my mom gave me her opal ring and said that I could reset it, since the yellow gold isn''t really my style. After a lot of messaging with Maddy on Etsy (aka OneGarnetGirl) my reset has finally arrived! So here it is: a plain 14 kt white gold bezel, size 3.5. Plain but perfect for me!

By the way, I am absolutely delighted with Maddy''s work - she''s really been a pleasure to work with!

First, here is the OLD setting:

What a difference! It looks so much more sophisticated in it''s new setting.

Thanks InnerKitten! It''s definitely more my style in the new setting, although I probably wouldn''t have reset it if it had been white gold. But I''m happy with the way it turned out!

BEG, I love it in your new setting. I agree with IK, it looks so much more sophisticated. It looks gorgeous on you. The opal by the way, is really beautiful.

Thank you Linda! I''ll pass the compliment about the opal on to my mom - it was her eyes that picked it out

Looks beautiful, is it a blue opal?

Thanks Pyramid! I have no idea - I really don''t know anything about opals and my mom and I definitely weren''t experienced in gems when she bought this (just bought what was pretty!)

Thanks Babysteps! I think I''m very much minimalist when it comes to opals
