Vintage 18ct Gold Boulder Opal and Diamond Stud Earrings
A beautiful pair of vintage 18ct yellow gold earrings, that have been set with an oval boulder opal and a small diamond each. The earrings have a post fitting, which is then secured to the ear using a hinged clip rather than a traditional butterfly. The boulder opals in these earrings show a rich display of blues and green in a broad flash, with a small area of red to one of the earrings. They are beautiful and incredibly eye catching stones, and they are complimented beautifully by the small diamonds. The earrings are stamped for 750 and 18K and are in excellent condition, with only a small amount of evidence of wear. A wonderful addition to the opal lover's jewellery box.
