Symphony of Color: Black Opal Diamond Ring
True gem quality opals, such as the one presented here reveal layer upon layer of colors which literally awaken with every movement of the hand and the black opal is the rarest and most valuable of all the opals. This black opal of an actual 4.69 carats displays those characteristics which make the stone so desirable and special as a true gem.
As mentioned, color is most important, then color and again color as the vivid nature of this quality makes or breaks a true gem quality opal. In addition, it is crucial that there is no spot on the opal which shows as dark or lifeless – remember that the presentation is a spectacle worth of the finest demonstration of fireworks.
This opal cabochon has intense and powerfully expressive coloration with all the vivid hues of the spectrum including that ever elusive and coveted red along with orange, blue, purple and green. There are areas of darker blue or purple which dramatically come alive with a simple twist or move. The final feature is the presence of the color red which against a black background is radiance incarnate.
No need for more, this miniature symphony of light is claw set into a simple mount of 18k white gold and accented on the sides with a pair of marquise diamonds with a total estimated weight of .20 carats with I-J color and VS2-SI1 clarity.
