SOLD Late Art Deco 14kt Gold Large Opal Ring
A gorgeous and large opal ring from the late Art Deco period, c1930s. This Machine Age ring is a real stunner made from 14kt gold. The ring has a large opal as the centrepiece that measures around 20mm by 12mm. The opal has a fairly milky appearance, though it exhibits incredible pockets of colour in certain lights ranging from reds/oranges to blue/greens. As is typical of opals, the colours it emits change in all sorts of different lights. The shoulders of the ring are lovely and chunky and have designs reminiscent of tank tracks, classic to this period. A truly wonderful ring of the utmost quality.
