Introducing a truly exquisite piece of history, this antique Australian 18ct yellow gold ring is a testament to the craftsmanship of our early jewellery firms.

Crafted by the esteemed manufacturer ‘DUNKLINGS’,  (1898 - 1990’s) this ring bears their hallmark W19D, for William Dunkling and 18ct gold.

 Its quarter hoop design, adorned with a meticulously carved out under gallery, typical or the late Victorian era, showcases the craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into its creation.

The ring boasts three solid fiery Opals, almost definitely from Coober Pedy, and each radiating a lovely play of colour that will captivate all who gaze upon it.
To add a touch of sparkle, four small rose cut diamonds delicately accentuate the Opals, creating a harmonious blend of beauty and brilliance.
