SOLD Vintage 1970 9ct Gold Matrix Opal Solitaire Ring
An absolutely stunning matrix opal ring from the late 20th Century, dated Dublin 1970. The ring is made from 9ct gold and has a super high setting that makes the stone stand proud. The stone is a wonderful matrix opal with incredible flashes of all colours including fiery red, sunset orange and yellow, hints of midnight blue and purple; it really is a true rainbow for your finger. It is impossible to capture the colour change that this stone has in the photographs and the movement of colour never ceases when it is on your finger.
The stone itself has a low profile allowing for it to be fairly well protected in its setting. The ring design is typical of this period and this is a wonderful 1970s cocktail ring.
