A striking blue sapphire is at the center of the newest award-winning ring from Omi Privé. The bold color combination of sapphire and Paraíba-type tourmalines is striking, and the addition of black rhodium accentuates the bold colors of the gemstones. A classic three stone design is given a modern reinvention with this stone pairing and rhodium plating. It’s also a prime example of the 2020 Pantone Color of the Year; Classic Blue.

The ring was viewed and voted on by retailers from around the country at the 2020 Centurion Jewelry Show in Phoenix and awarded best “Engagement Ring Modern Design”. President and Head Designer Niveet Nagpal was honored at the annual Centurion Excellence in Design Awards Gala. “When I saw this sapphire, I wanted to compliment its intense blue color with the same color family, yet make a bold statement with the complimentary Paraíba-type side stones. It’s the perfect “Something Blue” for the modern bride!” said Nagpal. “We are honored by the jewelry community’s support of our design and craftsmanship. It’s our relationships and the joy we see on the faces of fans that keeps us motivated to always push to the next level of design.”

At Omi Privé we covet black opal from the Lightning Ridge area of New South Wales, Australia. As gemologists we are taught never to identify gemstones by sight alone, but when it comes to natural opals, there’s nothing that quite compares and there are no two opals that are exactly alike. There are certain patterns that appear more often than others in the play-of-color seen in opals.

Opal is a non-crystalline form of the mineral silica. It is formed when tiny spheres of silica solidify and stack on top of one another. The uniformity of size of these spheres helps determine how the opal diffracts light and what color appears. Generally, when the spheres are more uniform in size and arrangement, the opal will produce more intense and defined play of color. We love to design with a variety of patterns and colors; here we will take a closer look at some of these pattern names as seen in Omi Privé pieces:

Pinfire: Seen in these opal rings – pinfire patterned opals can be described as having small bright spots of different colors that punctuate the stone and are visible in all directions.

R1796-RC1730-OPOV R1962-RC1740-OPOV

 

 

Sheen: & Moss: Sheen and moss patterns can be observed in this opal pendant. Sheen is considered as an overly similar, matching color pattern with diffuse, undefined flashes. It would also classify as a moss pattern which is just as it sounds; the play of color resembles scrawling moss.

P1402-PO1234-OPOV

Flash: The flash pattern in opals can appear in different ways. A broad flash pattern will cover a substantial part of the face of the opal, usually as a single color. Rolling flash patterns will roll across the face of the stone as it’s moved. Below are two examples of flash pattern opals.

R2166-RO1015-OPOV

 

R2124-RC1525-OPOV

Flagstone Harlequin: Harlequin patterns are often the most rare and valuable of all opal patterns, and are defined by a pattern of repeating squares of color. There are varieties of this pattern, and one is the flagstone harlequin, which contains patches of color that are more irregular in shape and fit together in a mosaic style similar to flagstone paving.

R1839-RO1213-OPOV R2114-RC1797-OPOV

Clover Harlequin: Similar to the above flagstone harlequin pattern, clover harlequin opals will display units of color that form in a clover leaf-like design.

R1936-RC1760-OPOV

Chaff: Opals with chaff patterns will often display other patterns as well, but the chaff pattern is observed when randomly oriented patches of color are broken by fine lines or brushstrokes crosshatching in different directions.

R2097-RC1795-OPOV R1735-RO1005-OPOV

Ribbon: Seen below in this exquisite opal, this pattern is observed as “ribbons” of color that will run across the opal, generally parallel from one another.

op1200_2019

This is just a small sampling of some of the recognizable patterns seen in opal. No two opals are alike, which is why developing a catalogue of patterns to help gemstone dealers and jewelers more accurately describe the stone is important. It’s common for opals to display one or more of these patterns throughout the stone, but generally, those with larger, more saturated and distinct patterns throughout will be more valuable. At Omi Privé we love celebrating this magnificent gemstone with vibrant and unusual color combinations and accents that emphasize the phenomenal nature of the opal.
