Art Deco Opal Diamond Cluster Ring 18k Gold Platinum

'All of Nature’s splendor seems to be reflected in the manifold opulence of fine Opals: fire and lightnings, all the colors of the rainbow and the soft shine of far seas. Its origins go back to a time long before our memory, to the ancient dream time of the Australian aborigines. It is reported in their legends that the creator came down to Earth on a rainbow, in order to bring the message of peace to all the humans. And at the very spot, where his foot touched the ground, the stones became alive and started sparkling in all the colors of the rainbow. That was the birth of the Opals.' - ICGA website

Opals always seem to me to be lit from within with their own internal flames. Flashes of red and yellow, orange, blue and green make this gorgeous opal and diamond ring a feast for the eyes!

This perfect opal and diamond cluster ring was hand crafted in 18 karat and platinum around 1930, in the heart of the Art Deco era. The star of the show is an oval, cabochon cut opal which reveals new colors and light from every angle. Bezel set in gold to accentuate it's beauty, this stunning gem measures 5.1 x 4.3 x 2.2 mm and weighs approximately .3 carats. It is surrounded by a halo of 8 old cut diamonds, weighing roughly .4 carats, which twinkle with your every move. Additionally, each shoulder is accented with a single rose cut diamond accented by platinum bright work. The ring weighs 2.2 grams, and was likely originally marked with an "18ct&Plat" mark but the 18ct part has been sized out at some point. It has however, been professionally acid tested to verify it's gold content, and tests as 18k. The top of the ring measures 9.6 mm north to south, 8.8 mm across, it sits 5 mm off the finger, and the band narrows to 1.9 mm at the back. This ring is a US size 5.
