Vintage 9ct Yellow Gold Coober Pedy Solid White Opal

Cleverly designed Australian ring featuring a solid white Opal from Coober Pedy.
Crafted from 9ct yellow gold and set with an oval cabochon solid Opal displaying quite an amazing ‘Pinfire’ colour play exhibiting almost every colour of the rainbow.  Intense, vivid and very bright this one shows colour through out the entire Opal with no dull areas. 

Reds, blues, greens, yellows, oranges and golds dominate this one!
Four claw set with a scrolling ribbon setting which cleverly protects the Opal from inadvertent bumps, all of which is set to a nice wide solid band.
Dating to around the 1980’s this gorgeous Opal will not disappoint.

Solid White Opal from Coober Pedy
Opal measures approx 16.1 x 8.4 x 3.1
Setting measures 1.7cm x 1.16cm
Rise from finger 6.7mm
3.71 Grams
M 1/2 or 16.9mm diameter US 6 1/2
Very good to excellent vintage condition. No chips, crazing or abrasions to Opal.  No thinning to shank. Very very slight movement of Opal in setting BUT this is a good thing … Opal should never be set too tightly as this can lead to fracture of the Opal if the ring receives a blow.

Opals are  relatively low on the Mohs hardness scale at 5.5 to 6.5 and approx 6% - 10% water content. Protective settings such as this one are a good thing!  Gorgeous bright Opal ring.
