The condition of the vintage ring is excellent. Besides general surface wear, there is no damage to the mount, and opal is secure in it's setting. A very small amount of crazing can be viewed under good lighting and hand lens to the back of the opal (appears stable and does not show face up). A wonderful vintage opal ring!
