Ronnie Henry’s work can be recognized by its sleek, modern design, judicious use of interesting stones, and comfortable prices.
This ring is a perfect example: Streamlined, unadorned silver cradles a slender oval of commercial opal.
The opal flashes its constellation of iridescent sparks against the recessed silver, which is darkened for wonderful contrast.
There is a handsome tension between the sharp-edged, upright lines of the silver in front, and the graceful curves of the opal between them.
Similarly, the myriad, glittering dots in the opal add color and texture, against the perfectly smooth, monochromatic silver.
Simple, and elegant, this is a lovely ring that belies its affordable price.
