Opal Perlman Is from Jamaica
Born Opal Stone on August 8, 1951, she is a native of Montego Bay, Jamaica. Her mother was a dressmaker with her own store in their hometown.
Growing up in her mother’s store and surrounded by rich tropical beauty, Stone was drawn to fashion. It’s no surprise that fashion brought her to the U.S., where she studied at Parsons School for Design in New York City.
She further fell in love with American couture while inspired by her home country’s culture, establishing her career as a couturier in Los Angeles.
Opal Stone Is a Jewelry Designer
Striving for perfection in her designs and sourcing the best materials for them are what make Opal Stone a spectacular creator of fashion pieces. So, when she took up the designing of fine and luxury jewelry, she found success.
When asked what drove her to launch Opal Stone Fine Jewelry, she said, “ Everything I design is what I want and what is missing. I’m absolutely in love with jewelry. I’m in love with diamonds — it’s my favorite thing of all. Before I got into design, I was studying psychology in college, but I would cut classes to go spend time at Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf’s instead. I was always fascinated with fashion.”
Her standout pieces are cuffs, but others are just as eye-catching, particularly because they are inspired by random sights during Stone’s travels. And her pieces have a few celebrity fans, like Beyonce, Teri Hatcher, Jennifer Hudson, Selma Blair, and Kelly Osbourne.
Following the success of her jewelry line, Stone has branched out to design a luxury handbag line.
Stone and Perlman Have Two Kids
Perlman and Stone married on Valentine’s Day 1981. They are now parents to two adult children, daughter Blake Amanda Perlman (born 1984) and son Brandon Avery Perlman (born 1990).
Blake is a singer and actress who worked alongside her father in StartUp and Hellboy II. She’s set to appear in the upcoming Hulu drama Reprisal, which premieres in December 2019.
Brandon performs as an EDM record producer under the name Delroy Edwards.
Stone and Perlman Separated in May 2019
On May 15, 2019, Ron Perlman was seen sharing a kiss with his StartUp costar, Allison Dunbar. The incident led to speculation of marital trouble and rumors that the actor and his jewelry designer wife have an open marriage.
The latter rumor is unfounded. However, it’s now been revealed that Ron and Opal were estranged for a while before calling it quits mere days before the PDA incident with Dunbar.
Divorce documents filed by Ron Perlman cite irreconcilable differences as the reason and the date of separation as May 10, 2019, five days before he went public with his relationship with Dunbar.
Prior to that, Ron and Opal were last seen in public together in 2018. She last featured in one of his social media posts in 2018.
