SOLD Art Deco Fire Opal & Diamond Ring
A wonderful ring from the Art Deco period, c1920s. The ring is made from 18ct gold with platinum settings as marked on the inside of the shank. It has a beautiful vibrant orange fire opal at the centre, which is very eye-catching in various lights. The opal has some flaws, including an internal crack to the stone. This does not reach the surface and the stone appears stable in its setting. The fire opal is flanked by a little stepped design set with diamonds, very typical of the period and glows prettily on the finger.
Due to the nature of opals in general and the inclusions in this particular stone, this ring should be worn with consideration.
