large opal diamond cluster and enamel 14k gold ring


The Story

You'll be mesmerized by this vintage opal and diamond gold cluster ring made during the mid-20th century.  

Victorian in style, this 14 karat yellow gold ring features a water opal at the center measuring 15.5mm tall x 11.1mm wide.  Surrounding the opal are 16 full cut diamonds, totaling approximately 1.60 carats in diamond weight.  Around the exterior is an inlaid rim of navy blue enamel giving the overall look a great contrast. 

The semitransparent clear background color of the opal shows great play-of-color in the pink/orange/yellow/and blue spectrum that will keep you gazing into the "crystal ball" of the prong-set opal cabochon.  

We never tire of the beauty of opals, and this fantastic cocktail ring is no exception.
