As in, you aren’t limited to a diamond when you say “yes” or “I do.” Exquisite options of the opal variety abound, from a center gemstone encircled with a halo of diamonds to a band beset with opals to exchange on your big day. Keep an open mind, and let your imagination and your heart be your guide. Get ready to meet the ring of your dreams.

Best Halo

Macy’s Opal and Diamond Ring

Price: $600.00

Behold this highly-rated opal ring that features a round-cut stone surrounded by a sparkly halo of diamonds, which cascade onto the delicate rose gold band. We love how this ring incorporates the rose gold trend, pretty, shiny diamonds and a unique center stone. This is one ring that will be noticed, admired and dare we say, coveted by friends. We picture a matching rose gold diamond wedding ring completing the stunning set.

Specifications:
Opal, 3/4 carat
Diamonds, 1/8 carat
14 karat rose gold

What Reviewers Are Saying:
“The picture does not do justice to how gorgeous this ring is. It is absolutely perfect. Looks very classic, and it’s very shiny. The band is thin and dainty. The rose gold and diamonds complement the opal nicely. Unfortunately, the opal doesn't have much ‘fire’ to it. The clarity and sparkle of the diamonds make up for it even though they are small. It’s still a keeper that I would recommend.”

I'm pleased with the quality and appearance of the opals, the setting and the band, but the only mildly disappointing factor are the diamond chips – they have zero shine.”
