Antique 10K Opal Cabochon Ring - A Beauty!
We're so happy that this ring is visiting with us for a while. Everyone has tried it on - two or three times in most cases. Just lovely on every level. A beautiful natural Opal and the Birthstone for October.
Between ourselves and the estate we estimate this beauty to have come from the 1940s. Perhaps a little earlier, perhaps a little later. But its condition certainly doesn't show its age! And it will grace your hand with beauty and style.
This is an Australian White Opal in a high Cabochon Cut. It is bezel mounted on a modified-basket setting. The natural Opal measures 10.5mm x 8.6mm x 4.1mm for a measured weight of approximately 2.4 Carats. It possesses all the fire and sparkle that you would expect from a fine Opal, and the depth of the cut accents the play-of-color even more.
This ring is a size 6.25 (6 1/4) and has a weight of 2.54 grams.
