Antique Arts & Crafts Opal Solitaire Ring

Precious opals are known for their diffraction of light, called ‘play of color’, in which rainbow colors shine from inside the stone like a kaleidoscope of firelight. Most of the world’s opals are found in Australia. There is an Aboriginal legend that says opals came from where the Creator touched his feet to the ground as he descended from the heavens on a rainbow.

This antique Arts and Crafts opal solitaire ring was handcrafted around 1910 in England. It features a round en cabochon precious opal set in 9 karat gold. The ring face measures 7 x 5.5 x 4.4 mm off the finger. This piece is a size 6.25 and it weighs 1.9 grams. It bears the gold purity mark, “9kt”. 

Opals have been used in jewelry as far back as 4000 BC, in Kenya. The ancient Romans regarded the opal as the most powerful gemstone, as a single stone could hold every color of every jewel.
