Featured is a very special vintage treasure exhibiting a precious opal, attributed to be from Lightning Ridge, Australia, which is surrounded by brilliant diamonds in high polished 18kt white gold. The opal rests in a 4-prong sturdy setting and is an oval cabochon cut gray semi-crystal solid opal displaying an intense rainbow play-of-color every which way its viewed. The opal weighs approximately 8.69 carats and is absolutely striking next to the brilliant white diamonds. There are 22 round bead/bezel set diamonds surrounding the opal with 2 larger diamonds on each shoulder in bezel settings. The total diamond weight is approximately 1.25 carats and they are graded G-H in color and SI1-I1 in clarity. The ring itself weighs 8.8 grams and is currently a size 8 with the ring sizer but we can remove this and resize the ring to whatever you need. The ring rises 5.30mm above your finger and its ring face measures 1 1/8” from North to South and about 3/4” from East to West. Its band’s width measures 3.30mm and tapers down to 2.25mm. This vintage ring was most likely crafted in the 1960s and is still in pristine condition.It was appraised by a GIA certified gemologist in 2012 for $43,900.
