SOLD Vintage 9ct Gold Opal Triplet Cocktail Ring
A wonderful ring from the middle of the 20th Century, c1960s. The ring has a simple solid 9ct gold shank that has lovely curves giving it a very tactile feel. At the centre is a wonderfully bright opal triplet. Opal triplets have a layer of onyx behind the main layer of opal to give it stability and to enhance colour. They then have a layer of domed glass to the top to magnify the colours from within. This is a beautiful example and the colours changes considerably as the ring moves. It is a lovely size making a real cocktail statement on the finger.
