    An opal ring automatically makes me think, maybe she has an October birthday. The other ring initially looks like a mood ring, but I can't tell if it just might be dirty or tarnished...:detective:

    I wonder what finger the opal ring was on? It looks similar to a friend of mine's engagement ring..

    That's the first thing I thought of! However, I have an opal ring that belonged to my grandmother because her name was Opal and she was born in October. Still, it's a clue worth noting.
