Mid-Century Bangle with Exotic Art Deco Black Opal Overlay
$7,850.00
A unique and exotically stunning early Art Deco bar pin (circa 1915), featuring a truly magnificent Lightening Ridge black opal, has been ingeniously repurposed (and inexplicably curved) to overlay this eminently more wearable 14 karat bangle bracelet (dating from the mid-20th-century). The enchanting and enchanted gemstone glistens and glows with a spectacular swirling profusion of electric rainbow colors, from cool pastel blues and greens to fiery oranges. The truly breathtaking Art Deco design rendered in 18K yellow gold, artfully incorporates small rich green triangular emeralds, a pair of brilliant red scissor-cut rubies, tiny lustrous seed pearls, and a pair of tiny diamond twinklers, all arrayed over a rigorously detailed neoclassically embossed frame for a marvelous and majestic effect. Magnifique! Condition note: two of the green stones are glass. Opal has crazing. Oval shape, 7 inches inside measurement.
