This beautiful ring has a single oval shaped cabochon opal, set with two sparkly diamonds on each side of the opal. The fantastic solid stone is prong set in 18K white gold . This is a fiery opal with shades of orange, yellow, red, green, blue, purple, pink and creamy white. I do not have a carat count on this beautiful opal but it is a large stone.
MARKINGS: It is marked on the inside 18K. This makes a stunning right hand ring or exceptional engagement ring!
SIZE: The ring is a size 7 but could easily be resized by your jeweler. The face of the ring measures approximately 5/8" by 3/8". I do not have a diamond carat total for this ring.
CONDITION: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. I see no flaws to the stone even under 10X magnification. No cracks.
ABOUT OPALS: Number of Colors.......... The more colors visible, the more valuable the opal. Blues and greens are the most common colors. Warm colors (yellow, orange, pink, and red) are less common. As a result, the more warm colors present, the higher the value. Violet and purple are the least common colors in opal. However, they have less effect on value than a hot red or orange.
****** Please note I am not a hand model. I have aged 'worker' hands!****** It has been requested that I show this ring under various lighting conditions.
The last 4 pictures show the opal in natural and low light conditions on my hand. I have explained the conditions within each photo because opals photographed in natural and low light can appear very different. I have tried to give you all the variations.
