Circa 1890's, a fascinating antique Victorian Crystal Opal and hand cut Diamond cluster ring. Opals from the Australian mines were newly available and much sought after at the time. The central Crystal Opal cabochon is lovely quality and shows all the rainbow hues as the light rolls over, a charming shape on the finger, the gems all clustered together making for a scintillating display; each of the old hand faceted Diamonds has a unique beauty and character all it's own and one which we love and search out in the pieces we choose.
All in 18ct yellow Gold with an artfully crafted scrolled setting, a style which was the highest fashion at the time. The ring size is a 'K' or '5.25' but could be altered to suit quite easily in our workshop.
