Flames & Ice: Fire Opal and Diamond Ring
With the intensity and power of the Aztec sun god Tonatiuh and that of the Mayan deity, Kinich Ahau, the gem known as the fire opal has played a major role in the rituals and faith of these early Mesoamerican people.
An oval faceted fire opal of an estimated 3.0 carats dominates this circa 1920 ring with its very fine and clear orange-red hue. The color is exceptional, not at all cloudy or muddy and the true intensity of such a gem shows. A surround of thirty-one (31) tiny rose cut diamonds and one single cut all set in silver caresses the passionate stone with an intense embrace. An antique base and shank of 14k yellow gold adorned with a swirling floral motif have been added.
Date: Circa 1920.
Measurements: Just over 1/2 of an inch (1.3 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 3/16 of an inch (0.6 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 3.4 grams (2.2 dwt).
Ring Size: US 8 (UK P-1/2; Euro or Int. Circum. 56.9 mm; Int. Dia. 18.1 mm; Japan 16) and easily can be sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.
Condition: Excellent for the fire opal; one diamond replaced; ring has the addition of an antique base and antique shank.
Note: Gemstone was not removed to preserve the integrity of the setting. Weight is approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weight.
