Tremendous 7.96ctw Black Boulder Opal Diamond Ring ~ This stately ring has a gorgeous black boulder opal, exceptional diamonds and a hefty platinum setting. The stone is an Australian Lightning Ridge mined opal weighing 6.85ctw. The opal has an amazing metallic flash of colors and unique natural properties. The opal is a deep black stone with a rough unpolished face and glittering rainbow colors in the matrix. The opal is highlighted by 10 VS2-SI1 E-F brilliant diamonds totaling 1.11ctw. The opal has a clean symmetrical pear cut and the diamond placement is a perfect highlight. I have never seen another opal or ring quite like it and it's breathtaking in the sunlight.
The setting is platinum and the ring is stamped Pm900 6.85 1.11 (representing the 900 Platinum, the opal weight and the diamond weight before mounting). The ring holds a total 7.96ctw. The ring is a size 7 3/4" and can be resized. The face measures 1 1/8" high (North~South) x 3/4" wide and the ring weighs 13.05g.
The ring is in excellent vintage condition. There is no damage to the opal, no breaks, no cracks or crazing and the edges are naturally wavy with very minimal wear. There is no damage to the diamonds and no damage or repairs to the setting. You will love this fascinating opal stone!
