This stunning vintage Opal and Diamond ring was made just after the Edwardian era came to a close and is crafted from rich buttery 18ct Yellow Gold.
It's fully hallmarked with large English stamps for the 1919, just before the official start of the Art Deco period in 1920, and is a real joy to wear!
The ring features three gorgeous natural Opals with a lively play of colours and two beautiful Rose cut Diamonds.
The Opals are cut en cabochon so they have a lovely smooth and rounded surface, which shows that wonderful iridescence in flashes of colour as you move. And they have a great balance of greens, pinks and fiery orange.
The Diamonds spacers are approximately 2mm each, lending an unmistakable old sparkle to the piece which immediately draws the gaze in any light.
We love the openwork setting which is typical of Edwardian design. It lets light flow through the piece and demonstrates the skill and craftsmanship that went into making this extraordinary ring so beautiful!

MATERIALS: 18ct Gold, Diamond, Opal
HALLMARKS: "18", Birmingham Anchor, Date Letter "u" for 1919. Maker's Mark obscured.
CONDITION: Very Good
This ring is in perfect vintage condition with no damage whatsoever. The setting and band are in great ready to wear condition and all the gemstones are held securely in place. The principle Opal is ever so slightly abraded but still has a good polish and radiating colours, and there are no chips or nibbles to any of the gemstones.
Clearly someone has loved to wear this ring! The band is slightly out of round and there is evidence of a past re-sizing. However the band has not thinned to the back as so many vintage and antique rings do, and so will stand up well to daily wear for many years to come.
