Victorian Opal and Old Mine Diamond Ring 18k c. 1890
This absolutely EXQUISITE Victorian ring was made circa 1890 and holds three natural opal cabochons with excellent play-of-color and four Old Mine Cut diamonds. Set in rich, golden and heavy 18k, this ring is fit for a queen! This is not a dainty ring, the face is wide east to west and will work best on a medium to large finger. And I know I've said this before but it must be noted--it is okay to wear opals! They are not bad luck! There is debate as to how this belief started but please know I have worn and sold many, many opal rings and no one has reported bad luck. So you're safe, enjoy the wonderful, colorful world of amazing opals! In excellent condition and ready for your hand.
