Absolutely breathtaking vintage natural opal and diamond demi parure ring and earring set, in 14k white gold! Likely dating back to the glamorous 1950's, when movie stars like Elizabeth Taylor were setting ladies high fashion styles. You'll certainly look and feel beautiful when you wear this dazzling set, which boasts three AA quality pear shaped natural opals and well over 7 carats total in SI1 diamonds! I took them on a "test drive" at a fine restaurant, and the diamonds absolutely sparkled in the soft restaurant lighting, setting off the opal's magnificent fire in a scintillating dance of light and color...
These vintage beauties would make an amazing Valentine's Day or anniversary gift, gorgeous jewelry for a bride, or a gift from a lovely lady to herself. They're as captivating to look at, as they are likely to capture your heart if you're the lucky new owner of this set!
The ring is stamped 14k (14 Karat), followed by maker's stamp which appears to say CP. The 14k white gold (un-stamped but tested) earrings are marvelously secure when worn, as they have threaded posts and backs, with posts threading through two holes in the backs, rather than the standard single hole for added safety.
