Art Deco Style 5.11 Carat Black Opal and Diamond Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
Every opal is its own universe and this one, from the famed Lightening Ridge Mine of Australia, is a galaxy of riotous color. Its dark body color provides the perfect contrast for the irrepressibly vibrant, electrified, iridescent hues of red, blue, green, orange, gold, and violet that flash from every vantage. Sparkling like the stars above and beneath the mesmerizing gem are crescents of glittering European and round brilliant-cut diamonds, while a half-moon-shaped diamond flashes brightly on each side. Shoulders set with a single tapered baguette and a dramatic louvered under gallery add the finishing accents to this stunning and gemmy Art Deco style jewel. Opal weight - 5.11 carats, total diamond weight - 1.95 carats. Hand fabricated in platinum, currently ring size 9.
