UK Size. R/S…..USA Size. 8.75
This is a Vintage Men’s/Unisex 8 Carat Yellow Gold & Natural Solitaire Opal Ring from the Cooper Pedy mines of Australia.
This is a quality opal which is 14mm by 12mm and of approx. 5.00 carats. It has a grey background colour with rolling flashes of green, blue and turquoise across its entire surface.
The ring band is stamped “333”, which is a German mark for solid 8 carat gold. Difficult to date precisely, but I would think Circa.1960’s/70’s.
It has been polished/sonically cleaned, is in excellent overall condition, with no damage/repair or obvious signs of wear.
It is a UK Size. R/S…..USA Size. 8.75 and weighs 5.75 grams.
Although essentially a gent’s style of setting, it could of course be worn by either sex. A totally unique large opal ring for those who like something different and exclusive in their jewellery.
