SOLD Vintage 9ct Gold Boulder Opal Solitaire Ring
A beautiful and unusual ring from the late 20th Century, c1980s. The ring is made from 9ct gold and it looks as though the top and the shank are a marriage; possibly the boulder opal and its setting are early 20th century (perhaps from a stick pin) and a later shank has been added. It is a beautiful simple style and the natural boulder opal is exquisite with deep flashes of red and green surrounded by the rock in which it was formed. Boulder opals are fascinating with their earthy tones mixed with the vibrancy of the wonderful opal. This one is an excellent example of this.
