Vintage Retro 9ct Gold Opal Solitaire Ring
An absolutely gorgeous opal ring from the second half of the 20th Century. The ring is made from 9ct gold and has a full English hallmark dating it to Birmingham 1969. The opal has a wonderful mix of colours that really pop in all lights. These gemstones are notoriously difficult to capture in a photograph and I would say that the picture of the ring on the hand is a good representation of this beautiful gem, as well as the picture from the side. It has been claw set and its oval cut is in total contrast with the square mount of the ring. A lovely retro design that sits beautifully on the hand.
