Marsol Friday Market by the Pier: “Opals!” 

David and Elizabeth Ruesga have been with the Marsol Market from its start – both summer and winter. They travel a long way each week to bring their gorgeous silver and gemstone jewelry to Vallarta. Lately, David has been working almost exclusively with large opals, fashioning rings and pendants that are full of extraordinary fire with sterling settings he has designed to be sturdy yet unobtrusive to let the opal’s lights shine. Stop by and see his magnificent new pieces.
