Choosing the right wedding ring is an important decision.
As you look for wedding ring inspiration, you may notice that unconventional rings are becoming more and more popular. One non-traditional, but the stunning option is to get an opal wedding ring.
Opals come in a beautiful array of rainbow tones that’ll make your ring stand out as a unique and attractive piece of jewelry to remind you and your SO of the day you said ‘we do’!
However, it’s worth remembering that opals are not as sturdy as diamonds and other gemstones, so you need to take special care of them.
But if you’re willing to put in the extra maintenance in exchange for a jaw-droppingly gorgeous ring, read on for some of our favorite opal wedding ring designs.
