Vintage solid Lightning Ridge black opal and diamond ring

Australia is regarded as home of the best quality opals in the world, and the best of the best are the famous solid black opals from Lightning Ridge, such as where this magnificent opal came from.

The colour in this opal is breathtaking and shows the complete colour spectrum from greens and blues to the most sought after colour in an opal of them all, red. This opal just dances in the light and measures 1.27 carats. Even the claws compliment the opal by being not single claws, but double claws and the entire ring was hand made in 18 carat white gold.

Complimenting the opal is a round brilliant cut diamond on each side, with the two diamonds having a total weight of 0.60 carats which not only sparkle beautifully, but are the perfect proportion to the opal.

Measuring 16.9mm across by 11mm, this ring looks stunning in any light and will always show just why there is no opal in the world as fine as an Australian Lightning Ridge black opal.
