Australian opals are regarded as the best in the world and the best of all the Australian opals are the Lightning Ridge black opals and here we have a magnificent solid black opal and diamond Art Deco ring that sits so elegantly on the finger and has the most wonderful solid black opal as the star.
Dating from the 1930's, this ring was hand made in 18ct yellow gold and platinum in such an elegant design that showcases the quality of the opal which is highlighted by the diamonds set on each side.
The opal has such fire to it displaying great spectral flashes of red to blue and is set with the partial bezel on the sides and one claw on the top and bottom to really showcase the opal.
And on each side in an elegant step down design are three diamonds followed by a further diamond that leads to the band. These diamonds total 0.10 carats and add just the right amount of sparkle while never taking away from the beauty of the solid opal.
Black opals are just so fascinating to look at, and this opal and diamond ring will have you captivated every time that you look down at your finger.
