Sleek Art Deco Fire Opal Ring
The icy coolness and bright white color of palladium is the perfect foil for a natural fire opal of an estimated 2.75 carats. Cut en cabochon, the vivid neon orange gem shows hints of lime green and canary yellow. Chosen for its fine clarity, the color is bright, not at all dull or muddy as many can be.
Set vertically, the mouthwatering orange gem is accented with a pair of baguette diamonds, four (4) single cut and two (2) transitional diamonds with a total estimated diamond weight of .27 carats of icicle white. The sleek and chic mount of palladium is highlighted by its clean geometric lines.
Date: Circa 1935.
Note: Discovered in 1803, palladium is a rare and lustrous silvery-white metal that together with platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium, form the group of elements known as the platinum group metals or PGM. During the late 1920s and into the 1930s the metal was used in the construction of jewelry just like platinum and gold. Lighter and more malleable than platinum, its use today is in alloy combinations with other metals. However, in recent years palladium is back in fashion with use as a sole metal.
