Opal is by far the most unique gemstone in the world, with no two ever the same, and here is a very elegant Art Deco opal and diamond halo ring from the 1930's.
Hand made in 18 carat yellow gold, in the centre sits a solid black crystal opal that measures 0.65 carats and displays a lovely rolling colour from blue and green with charming flashes of red. Being oval in shape accentuates the finger and design of the ring beautifully, then it is surrounded by sixteen single cut diamonds to add the perfect amount of sparkle to the ring.
These diamonds total 0.16 carats, and the top of the ring measures 9.6mm across by 13.5mm and sits so well on the finger.
This ring is nearly 100 years old, and still looks as beautiful and elegant today as when it was made thanks to the traditional cluster design that has never gone out of fashion or style.
