Victorian Five Opal & Diamond Cluster Ring
in 14k Gold & Platinum
* * SOLD * *
An elegant antique five stone ring, modeled in 14k rose gold, whose primary gems are a series of fiery white opals. These opal cabochons graduate in size across the ring's long, east/west oriented face, which is gently bowed. A border of glittering old cut diamonds, mounted in notched, fishtail settings, surrounds the five opals— the ring's gallery is a decoratively pierced extension of this diamond surround. Its half-round shank tapers toward the base. This 14k gold ring features a platinum overlay that whitens its face and gallery. We love the varied expressions of the opals, here, that flash a rainbow of colors with a little movement. This ring has a big, magical presence in wear!
