Adding some sparkle to National Selfie Day

June 21 is normally noted for being the Longest Day (Summer Solstice) but this year it has a new distinction: it's National Selfie Day. The wonderful online jewellery retailer Gemporia is using thisas an opportunity to highlight some of its gems, and I was thrilled to accept an opal ring to create a "Gemfie."
Opals are one of the most spectacular gemstones. A single stone can flash every colour of the spectrum with an intensity and quality of color that can surpass the "fire" of diamond.

The best opals can command prices per carat that rival the most expensive diamonds, rubies and emeralds.

My opal comes from the Australian Coober Pedy mine and has 0.8cts of gorgeous milky white opal. It's a stone that goes with so many colours and outfits.
