A delightful piece for an avid opal collector and antique lover.
The Black opal, radiates from an almost equally stunning original French and diamond 1940 mounting.
Crafted in HANDMADE 18k White and Yellow (tested ), this splendid vintage jewel sparkles with 18 twinkling Round Brilliant diamonds, totaling approx. 0.54ct, F-G-H Color, VS-SI clarity overall, Very White and Eye Clear, unusually High Quality for that period! The diamonds artfully set in truly spectacular and impressive Jazz Late Deco jewel. The total weight of the Gems is approx. 5.89ctw. The height of the ring is 5.96mm, band tapers from 2.46mm to 2.09mm. The weight of the ring is 6.4, nice and solid. The finger size is 6 1/2(sizable). Hallmarks: French Hallmark. Given the ring's age and condition ( just very minor sign of wear on the mount), we think that it was staying in one family without being sold and re-sold., Some very professionally small repair has been noticed on the prongs, all gems are present, seem original, and securely set. *** Since we list antique and vintage items we try to make sure to identify any issues. However please go over the photos so you can assess any wear issues that would matter to you personally. Please note: gemstones may vary slightly in color tones from one computer to another. All gemstones and diamond weight is approximate to preserve integrity of the setting unless otherwise stated.
This ring is perfect to cherish forever!!!
