Opal is the birthstone for October and the 14th wedding anniversary stone. But all women adore them, making opal jewelry the perfect gift for any occasion. This 10K opal ring is absolutely perfect in both size and price!
Offering Art Deco flair and all around good looks, this ring features 16 genuine white opals set in a geometric rhombus pattern. The opals are prong set, with each measuring 2.5mm (.03ct), with a total carat weight of approximately .5ct.
The face of the ring measures 12mm tall by 16mm wide (1/2" by 5/8"). The ring shoulders' stair stepped arrow design complete this gorgeous retro look. The shank is sturdy, measuring 10mm at the shoulders and narrowing down to 2.5mm. the band is in its original 7 US size and can be easily sized up or down 1 or 2 sizes. The inside of the band is hallmarked "10K" and stamped with a makers mark of "7G". Rising off the finger just over 1/4", this ring offers Art Deco chic without being overpowering.
This ring is in excellent condition. All of the opals are original and none of the sixteen stones are chipped or cracked. The prongs are in excellent condition and in no need of repair or tipping. The photos reflect a purple mark on one of the stones right of center. This was a marker and wiped away. The shank exhibits minimal wear, limited to faint surface scratches which will disappear when repolished. These stones do not have an extreme fire but it is present and best viewed under magnification.
Treasured since ancient times for their protective powers, opals were thought to ward off evil and were heralded for their natural healing properties. This gem is comprised of microscopic silica spheres that are bound together by more silica and water. The varying amount of water within a particular stone determines the appearance and fire of the stone. The majority of opals are mined in Australia.
This is a great ring being offered at a great price. It looks great on the finger and wears like a dream. It will be delivered in a lovely presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage.
