!BEAUTIFUL! C.1885 Rose Gold Victorian Period BUTTERCUP Style Mounting is set with a GENUINE Opal that (depending on the light) displays VIBRANT hues of Blue, Green, Purple & Pinky/Orange. This EXQUISITE Antique Gold Ring setting has 6 Prongs as well as CRISP beading & chased linear designs on both 'shoulders'. Shank is widest in the front where it meets the head & gradually narrows around the back for comfort.
October's birthstone: Opal is considered a stone representing hope, innocence and purity. It has strong connotations of happiness, faithfulness, loyalty and confidence. If you believe in the healing power of stones, opal is good for eye infections and diseases, as well as the enhancement of other healing processes.
115+/- Year Old Fiery Opal Ring is unmarked aside from hand engraved script initials "BCL"? inside the band. As is common for American made jewelry from the 19th Century, there are no marks to indicate precious metal content - has been professionally acid tested (without filing) & I GUARANTEE it to be at least 10 Karat Gold. Front MEASURES ~ 1/4 Inch N-S and it currently is a tight Size 3 on my ring 'wand' - could be sized up a tad for a custom fit by an experienced bench jeweler. It fits securely on my pinky finger.
Late 19th Century Jewelry is in VERY GOOD CONDITION! After MORE than a century of CHERISHED use there is NO DINGS, DENTS, BREAKS, Ugly Repairs or Excessive Wear to the Solid Gold mounting & NO chips or cracks to the opal gemstone - shank is SOLID. This heirloom ring is from a Central NY collector who purchased numerous pieces of doll/children's jewelry from me 20 years ago - more to be listed soon.
Don't miss the chance to add an authentic Rose Gold Victorian Era Ring to YOUR Opal Jewelry Collection! Perfect for YOUR pinky or for a SPECIAL Child.
