The durability thing has been one of my concerns with putting a Black Opal into a pinky ring for myself. It would most likely be worn on nights where I am playing gigs, which is a problem since my playing technique is quite rough on my hands. I'd hate to finish a gig and see scratches and damage all over itarkieb1|1461909059|4024979 said:Very Pretty, it's sort of a myth that opals aren't that durable, they generally are O.K IMHO especially if you put it into a protective setting.
Me too jordy, i usually need symmetry in all my jewellery! Youve been reslly busy, hopefully you get some time soon to make it down to the club again. Can't wait to see some new pics from you!jordyonbass|1461879826|4024828 said:That pendant looks great!! Personally I prefer the look of symmetrical cabs in rings but that's just me, I'm sure if it goes into a ring you'll make me go 'OK here is an exception'
Truth be told I haven't had a chance to get down since starting the thread, I still have to attack ol pinky! Between moving house, a new job coming, crazy shifts etc I just haven't had the opportunity. However with the new job I'll be getting a leave payout and a nice opal package with that. The plan is to try get rough to do a pair of white and a pair of crystal opals, some extras for practice and a little black nobby. Originally I was going to do the nobby for my little sister in law however a nice little pinky ring for myself with a little black nobby is sounding more and more enticing
