Estate Opal "nugget" Ring


It's as if the gold naturally formed around the opal contained in this ring!

This is a classic "nugget" style that was popular in the late 20th century and we would say this ring is circa 1970s.

The yellow gold provides the perfect backdrop for the stunning opal that it securely holds.
The ring is styled to have the rough and natural texture of a gold nugget. 

The opal is an oval cabochon cut and measures 8x6.00mm.
It has a beautiful play of colour on every angle you view it from. 
The opal is not a doublet or a triplet: it is a solid opal. 

The band is made from 14 karat yellow gold with a fluid like design and has a textured finish on it.

The ring bears the birmingham assay office import mark which was used between 1904-1998 on items imported into birmingham/the uk during this time.

The current size of this ring is 6 ½

This item comes with a verification report from a certified independent appraiser.
