We almost didn't put this antique opal ring up for sale because it's just so beautiful! Featuring a dark, precious opal (more grey then black) with a fabulous play of colour. Mostly blues and greens, but purple, yellow and red seen at certain angles, particularly side on.

The opal cabochon is set in a beautiful coronet setting decorated with hearts, and the ring is made from fine 18ct yellow gold. Age wise, we would place this in the late Victorian era and this is likely one of the earliest stone to leave Australia. It is a GLORIOUS piece of jewellery.

The opal is in good condition: some crazing to the surface where it has no doubt dried out in the past along with surface scratching from wear, as you would expect with 130+ years of use. The scratching has dulled the lustre of the stone, but there is nothing condition wise that causes us any concern. We will send the ring with a care card, so you can keep this opal in its current condition for many, many more years!

A divine ring and whoever buys it from us will be thrilled. It will arrive presented in our recycled kraft ring box, and worldwide delivery is fast and secure.

Your jewellery will arrive in a display box made from recycled card. We only package using recycled materials, and we think this compliments your ethical vintage purchase perfectly.

A written valuation is provided for all individual jewellery pieces priced at £1000 or more.
