Art Deco GIA Certified Black Opal Diamond Ring
Black opals are among the most rare and valuable of all natural opal varieties. Unlike their common opal counterparts, they have a dark canvas and radiate brilliant flashes of colors due to their subtle iron oxide and carbon properties. Although a portion of the world's opals are mined in Ethiopa, most originate in Australia (particularly from a region known as "Lightening Ridge") and the opal has henceforth been named Australia's national stone. Historically, opals were believed to bring good luck when given as a gift. In the modern day, they continue to be adored worldwide and are one of the most desirable stones used in fine jewelry! A simply exquisite and unusual opal and diamond ring from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This fabulous piece is crafted in platinum and features a single oval-shaped cabochon black opal stone set in its center. The stone, which is particularly large in size, is prong set and has simply magnificent and unusual color with hues of dark hunter green, blue, red, orange and yellow. The center stone is framed on either side by fourteen old European Cut diamonds and two Baguette Cut stones which are incorporated into the fabulous accenting Deco design. The shank is stamped “PLATINUM.” The opal stone is absolutely stunning and the ring looks beautiful on. It would make a gorgeous addition to any collection! The ring has a finger size of 6.25 but could easily be resized. The oval shaped opal stone measures 12mm at its widest point, 15.5mm at the tallest point and has a depth of 6mm.
