Story

It is difficult to believe now, but when opals first entered the marketplace in the late 1800s, many around the world didn't know what to make of these remarkable gemstones.

Today, the appreciation for fine opals rests at the polar opposite of those earlier sentiments. Time, knowledge, and familiarity can make all the difference.

In this Edwardian ring, an exceedingly fine black Australian opal displays its large patches of color in a splendid array. At 3.8 carats (13 x 9.9 x 5.2 mm), the opal holds a kaleidoscope of hues.

Dominating are hummingbird neon blues and greens, with a significant patch of orange, yellow and several smaller flashes or the rare, flame reds so sought after.

Every angle reveals new depths of its expressive personality. A rim of old mine cut diamonds. Eighteen chunky glittering lovelies in all weight in at 1.08 carats. Their color range is H-I and their clarity is SI1-2 with only clear, small invisible to the eye inclusions.

In 18k yellow gold, the opal is prong set and the diamonds are supported by a "U" shaped open, gallery. A tapered shank is softly polished and silky smooth.

Ideal for a men's ring or easily sized for anyone. Comes in an antique box, not original to the ring.
