COMMENTS: Featured here is a fantastic opal ring dating back to the early 1900's! This is quite an eye-catching ring set with uniquely cut opal slice that gives the appearance of oil slick. The setting is a delicate art nouveau style with floral detail and geometric shoulders. It must be seen in person to be fully appreciated as the photos do not do this piece justice! Firmly bezel set in the lovely setting is the opal which has an alluring play of color. Diagonally across the center of the stone is a bold strip of green with an orange edge. A fainter reddish orange strip, closer to one of the corners, can also be seen at certain angles. Scattered throughout are more flashes of green, orange, blue and lavender. Please look at all the pictures as some show the flashes more boldly than others. Keep in mind, when worn, your finger will show through. When measured, the stone is about 3.20 carats but it is hard to get an exact measurement the way it is set. The rich 18k gold setting has open work in the gallery and etching down the shoulders. This is by far, the most unique opal ring I have ever seen! There is no doubt you will be very pleased with the ring and will be thrilled to add it to your collection! Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age.
