I mentioned earlier this week that I’m having an opal moment, in part because my mother recently gave me an amazing fire opal ring. She bought the stone in Australia while we were there for tennis ages ago. So, you can just imagine that I flipped when I saw this image on Sarah Harris’ Instagram feed. She is wearing a handful opal rings by jewelry designer Susan Foster. They are lovely.

  • I love these rings. And I especially love it when you mention your mother. Very beautiful– on both counts.

  • I am passionate about opals as well! I just designed a beautiful piece around a gorgeous stone I bought a few months ago from a geologist. It will become a statement pendant!

  • So beautiful, all of them. And so nice about your new ring.

  • I have what they call a “Hawaiian Opal” bought in Maui about 18 years ago and it’s set horizontally across my finger in gold. It’s a little irregular in shape and a gorgeous mix of blues and green. I always get complements on it and I don’t think I paid more than $350 for it! It’s a great ring for summer. I also bought matching stud earrings and those are neat too. They just remind me of the ocean and Hawaii. Enjoy your new opal!

  • I am an October baby and the stone is close to my heart. It is good luck to receive an opal – all good things for you!

  • Everything but opal. I love moonstones, have a cocktail ring with it and love it. Maybe opal is kind of too colorful to me.

  • Awesome! I have always loved opals…it’s my mother’s birthstone and my auntie had given her a lovely necklace when I was a kid. I found a shop in Santa Barbara with some Australian pieces…

  • I have a beautiful opal necklace my Aussie husband gave me and I always get compliments on it – such a unique stone. Curious to know the shop in Santa Barbara with Australian pieces ? I am here now and would love to go
