This superb antique 18ct Gold Opal ring features 5 glorious natural Opals and a beautiful and decorative rich yellow Gold setting.
It was made during the Victorian or Edwardian era, as we can see from the lovely scrolled gallery and detail on the shoulders- which was so typical of the time.
The Opals are of exceptional quality with a gorgeous play of colour. They seem to glitter a a kaleidoscope of colours when you look deep within, but even from afar they are luminous with bright greens and orange.They really are extremely bright and lively!
The Opals are some of the most magical, fiery Opals we have ever come across (which really says something!) and they have the most wondrous glow from within come rain or shine. The beautiful open setting allows the light in so the stones really sing, and also shows they are solid pieces of Opal (and not doublets or triplets as you may find in more contemporary jewellery.)
This is a very special antique Opal ring that will only gain value at the years go by. We are offering her at an exceptional price, so don't miss this opportunity to own a real heirloom!

This antique 18ct Gold Opal ring is in truly tremendous condition for its age. Circa 1900, the rich Gold band and setting are exceptional, with only very light wear to the very back of the band, as you might expect of an authentic antique ring. The Gold has a beautiful sunny Gold colour which compliments the Opals well, and the gems are all secure in their settings. The Opals are pristine! No chips, scuffs or abrasions. no cracks or crazing. The ring has nice clear hallmarks for 18ct Gold and no evidence of any alternations, sizing or repairs. Truly a fabulous, one of a kind piece!
*Please note there is a small brownish area on one of the outer Opals. This is part of the natural Opal matrix and is not a chip or damage of any kind.
*Also these images haven't been "Photoshopped" or doctored in any way. Yes! The amazing rainbow we see is the natural colours of the Opals!
