UK Size R……..USA Size. 8.50
This is an Antique 14 Carat Yellow Gold & Natural Multicolour Opal Men’s/Gent’s/Unisex Ring from the Cooper Pedy mines of Australia.
This is a beautiful large quality opal which is 17mm by 12mm and of approx. 10.00 carats. It has a grey background colour with panels showing bright flashes of red, orange, green, blue and yellow across its entire surface.
The ring setting has an ornate design on its shoulders and is stamped “14K”, which is a German mark for solid 14 carat gold. Difficult to date precisely, but I think it is of the period, Circa.1900 or thereabouts.
It has been polished/sonically cleaned, is in excellent overall condition, with just one tiny dent on the underside at one end (not visible when being worn).
It is a UK Size. R…..USA Size. 8.50 and weighs 4.75 grams.
It is a fairly large fitting and could be worn either by a lady or a gentleman.
A beautiful and totally unique period opal ring for those who like something different and exclusive in their jewellery.
