The ring is very pretty. The opal is a very nice size. The gemstones are about the size of the head of a pin. I'm worried the gems are so tiny they may not be secure enough and fall out. The amethyst's are a shade of lavender. The gems add some sparkle around the opal. The description does not tell you that it is a lab created opal, but it is. Nice size and not too showy for everyday. It took 2 weeks to arrive which surprised me. Overall it is very pretty.
