Red, orange, blue, green, and purple flash throughout this spectacular vintage black opal ring, and enhanced by its diamond and platinum setting. The stone is set in an Art Deco style platinum setting with pave diamonds surrounding the stone and set into the wide prongs; a pair of baguettes flanks the main setting for added presence.
The opal is approximately 3 carats in size and the diamonds have a total weight of approximately 1.1 carats. The opal is reportedly a Lightening Ridge Australian opal, and the quality of the stone suggests this to be the case, although there is no paperwork trail to document it.
I've photographed the ring against both light and dark backgrounds so its true magnificence can be appreciated.
