This is a stunning multi stone ring. The opal gets its name from the Greek “opallios” and means "a change of color.” It has wonderfully seductive colors of metallic green, blue and yellow. One can even notice a moonstone-like reddish glow which travels around the edge. The oval shaped opal measures 8x6mm, and is about 4.0mm thick. It weighs ~0.78 ct.
The vibrant opal is beautifully supported by three round shaped natural emeralds which serve as shoulders. The six emeralds amount to approximately 0.72cttw. The opal and green emeralds are further contrasted with six natural red tourmalines positioned north and south of the opal. They weigh approximately 0.32cttw and make a lovely contrast with the other colored stones.
This is a gorgeous ring! The multiplicity of colors of the nearly 2cttw of stones is outstanding. The ring is in excellent vintage condition. Any white or cloudy spots on the images are glare and/or photographic obstructions.
