This stunning antique ring features 3 glorious Opals and 4 chunky old mine cut Diamonds in a beautiful band of 18ct yellow Gold.
It would have been made around the turn of the 20th Century over 100 years ago, and is in truly tremendous condition!
The Opals are of exceptional quality and show no signs of wear at all. It's clear it's been well taken care of over the course of its history.
The Opals have a gorgeous play of colour that seem to glitter like a kaleidoscope. Unlike many Opals that have a milky white base colour these are all fire and colour! They have a striking iridescence of different greens, blues, lilac, violet, orange, yellow and even bright pink, but the predominant colours are mesmerizing turquoise and neon greens.
It's difficult to capture the true beauty of Opals in a photograph but these superb gemstones just can't be contained!
The largest Opal is 7mm x 5mm and with a span of 22mm across the top of the stones it's by no means a small ring. Sure to bring a smile to anyone's face this is a real thing of beauty, to be treasured always.
