Victorian opal and diamond ring – RESEREVD

£1,450.00

It is very difficult to convey the quality of an opals through a photograph. These three opals exhibit mesmerising properties. The ring itself is a classic Victorian piece set with six old cut diamonds and modelled in 18ct gold. As with all our opals stock we advise being mindful in the circumstances that you wear them. We do not wish to put you off in any way but opals, especially antique opal rings, should be worn with care. Do not expect to be able to wear items such as this in the gym or doing activities which could result in sudden impacts and have the jewellery last another 100 years. Antique jewellery should be treated as such but that being said should be enjoyed.
