Antique Opal & Garnet Graduated Five Stone Ring, 18ct 18k Yellow Gold 1910s Band.Add to Wishlist
Antique opal and garnet graduated five stone ring. This is probably one of the most unique rings we've seen in a while! I adore opals and garnets together...actually, I like opals with just about anything, but these just really work. Three oval cut opal cabochons are set in a gradated design with fatter garnets between them. The contrast is striking! Green and orange flashes and play of colour from the opals combined with the lovely colour of nice, deep garnets. The gemstones are secured in multiple tiny claws and are set about a third of the way around the finger ending at a D shape profile gold band. This ring would make an ideal anniversary or special occasion ring. Garnet is the birthstone for January and opal is the birthstone for October. Circa 1910s, British in origin.
Opals: 3, oval in shape measuring from approx 5 mm by 3.5 mm to 3.5 mm by 2.7 mm.
Garnets: 2, oval cut, approx 4 mm by 3.2 mm.
