Opal Ocean Treasure Ring
The most exquisite opal from Lightning Ridge, Australia combined with green tourmalines, tsavorites and blue diamonds have been hand selected by the Gill Wing Team and Ami was commissioned to make this incredible piece in 14ct Fairtrade gold. The opal reflects flashes of ocean blues and deep rich forest greens illustrating the incredible diversity of tones witnessed in the best Lightning Ridge opals.
“We discovered an ocean inside this opal cut by Ancients17. Ami Pepper translates delicate barnacles and shells in to exquisite gems, so it was a natural choiceto ask her to create the perfect oceanic ring for our Treasury. Encapsulating the beautiful gems that I selected in Fairtrade gold transports me to hazy days of rock-pooling and treasure seeking. A true One of a Kind. ”- Sarah Burns, Director, Gill Wing Jewellery.
Due to the unique nature of this incredible ethically sourced gem, the Opal Ocean Treasure Ring is a ‘One of a Kind’ piece, but we are open to commissioning a similar work of art in other gemstones.

Born in Pembrokeshire West Wales, Ami’s collections of unique & sculptural pieces of jewellery explore the intricate cluster formations of shells. Ami’s fascination with their formations stem from her childhood memories of beach combing along the Pembrokeshire coast. The cycles of the tides washing ashore organic forms offered intricate textures and tones in her finds. Ami sculpts her jewellery through meticulous hand carving, casting into metal and encrusted with stones, to form precious yet organic compositions.
Ami began her studies on the foundation course at Central Saint Martin’s and went on to graduate with a first class BA(Hons) from the prestigious School of Jewellery in Birmingham in 2013.
