Dinosaur Bone and Lab Created Opal Ring In Sterling Silver
Laboratory created opal and gray dinosaur bone ring handmade in sterling silver by Hileman Silver Jewelry. The four pieces of gray dinosaur bone with black webbing are separated by 3 pieces of lab created opal. The dinosaur bone in this ring has several shades of gray with just a hint of taupe in some spots mixed with black webbing. The unique fossilized dinosaur gem bone in this ring came from the Morrison Formation in the Colorado Plateau and was a living dinosaur during the Jurassic Period around 144 to 208 million years ago. The lab created opal is a nice blue-green with lots of fire. Special care was taken when selecting and cutting the lab opal to make it look as much like natural opal as possible. The lab created opal in this ring is a top quality synthetic opal grown under laboratory conditions. The manmade opal's chemical composition is the same as natural opal with the exception of water content. Australian opal contains about 4% water and lab created opal contains no water. Instead the water is replaced with resin. The resin gives the synthetic opal more durability and helps to resist cracking. Laboratory grown opal gives you all the fire and colors of top grade natural opal at a much more affordable price with increased durability.
This bold dinosaur bone ring measures about 10mm wide at the top and is shown in a size 10 1/2 for scale. This ring will be made to order in your ring size in 4 to 6 weeks- depending on the work load. This ring style is also a popular choice for a man's wedding ring. This ring is style number M210ssGrayDinoLabOpal. A matching woman's band (or gent's) could be made to make a nice dinosaur bone wedding ring set.
**I recommend upgrading to Continuum sterling silver for all wedding ring or heavy wear jewelry. It will be much more durable than standard sterling silver and should extend the life of your jewelry.

Please take a look at my shop policies and information page before ordering!
It is very important that you give us your correct size when ordering as it is difficult to adjust the size without using a laser welder and risking damage to the ring. The paper finger sizers you might find on the internet and print out are not accurate so please do not use them. We have experimented and found that they vary from a 1/4 size to a full size in error. Please visit a local jeweler (or two) and get your finger sized properly. You should use a sizer that is similar in width to the ring you intend to purchase. We depend on you, the customer, to provide us with the correct size so please do not estimate or guess. Special order size rings are NOT RETURNABLE.
