Wonderful vintage estate 14k gold (subtle pinkish color) hand crafted opal in matrix ring, size 5.5. Measures 9/16" x 7/16", the band tapers to 2.4mm at the back of the ring shank, weighs 2.5 grams. The natural opal in matrix oval cabochon measures 13mm x 10mm and is bezel set into a wide collet collar that's width just about matches the width of the actual band. Really interesting stone, matrix opals are a type of boulder opal and are found as part of a host rock, called Boulder ironstone. The matrix creates "windows" where you can see the iridescent colors of the opal peeking through. It's very subtle, but very appealing if you are into Mother Natures rough organic jewelry. Hallmarked "14K" on the inside of the ring shank. In excellent condition, an estate piece from the 1960s-1970s. NON US buyers please contact us for shipping rates.
