DESCRIPTION (Please scroll to the bottom to view video)

The struggle is real as we are besotted with this ring and are very reluctant to let this beauty go!

Crafted from lush soft hued 18ct rose gold typical in antique jewellery and set with the most stunning heart-cut solid dark opal (assessed as Type 1 - colour Type N6).  

Also known as grey Opal, dark Opal or see-black Opal, this term refers to Opals which have a darker body tone that white Opals, but are not quite dark snout to be classed as black Opal.

This wonderful Opal exhibits a soft grey body tone with beautiful flashes of yellows, golds, pinks, reds, greens and blues!

The Opal is bezel set to a heart shaped surround, open at the back allowing the light to illuminate this Opal perfectly, to a very thick and substantial smooth half round shank.

Incredibly comfortable on the finger this antique ring is a dream to wear.. and a must for the Opal lover!
