An impressive vintage opal and diamond ring from circa 1980! Handmade of 18ct white gold the timeless cluster design boasts a wonderful Australian boulder opal. The boulder opal exhibits spectacular red, purple, blue, and green play of colour, amalgamated with dark, almost black natural ironstone host rock. It is quite a stunning boulder opal - the colors are intense and dance in a mesmerizing display, especially when viewed in daylight! Likely to have been mined in western Queensland, Australia where boulder opal production fields are situated. Adding further character and uniqueness to the ring is the free-form, undulating ovalish cabochon shape of the boulder opal - a typical boulder opal feature to maximize size and preserve the precious opal. A halo of fourteen dazzling white diamonds borders the opal. The fine white diamonds of G-I colour, SI1 clarity grade are a striking contrast against the dark, vivid boulder opal. Total estimated weight of the diamonds is 0.70 carats (approx 5pts each).

The stones are shown off in a lovely two-tier oval cluster design with the opal resting in a six-claw setting and diamonds individually placed in three-claw bezel settings, finished with low profile wire basket undercarriage. Completing the design is a polished fine band that graduates slightly from the base to sides to form into elegant upswept pointed shoulders. Stamped "750" inside the shank, denoting 18ct white gold. Finger size measures '8 1/4' (USA) 'Q' (Aus), and can be resized to a degree.

The ring would be accompanied by an valuation certificate carried out independently by a FGAA Gemmologist/ Registered NCJV Valuer. This maybe utilized for insurance purposes, and the recommended retail price (RRP) of the ring in Jan 2020 was $ 6,190 AUD.

A wonderful piece of Queensland boulder opal jewellery. Perfect for the opal lover!
