A tantalizing vintage opal ring dating back to the Retro era, circa 1960's! The eye is drawn towards the Australian crystal opal which measures 18.5mm long x 12.50mm wide - an impressive size on the finger I might add! The solid opal has a nice semi-translucent body, hence the term 'crystal opal'. The opal emits beautiful bright green fire along with blue, purple and orange flecks. - highlighted more in daylight, and like all opal best seen in real life to be fully appreciated. The opal is claw set with lovely swirling flat ribbons of gold surrounding, a wire basket-style undercarriage supports opal from below and sturdy 3.5mm wide flat profile band makes up the rest of ring.
Ring is hand-crafted in 9k yellow gold, corresponding stamp inside shank "9CT" along with the makers mark "JB". Finger size measures 9 3/4 (USA) or T (AUS). Head of ring measures 22mm along finger x 17.80mm across and setting height is 9.60mm.
