A spectacular play of color on this vintage sterling silver native american crafted black opal ring. This unique ring has over 5 carats of natural black opal gemstones. It is a size 10 and unisex in style. See on our model for size comparison.
The front of the ring measures 1" from north to south with an approximate center opal setting of 5/18" X 13/16". The rectangular section of opals are individually set pieces running in a staggered pattern laterally. On the sides of the mount are two cabochon trillion cut opal stones. I am giving a rough estimate of weight between 5-5.5 carats total carat weight.
The play of color is fantastic and the the greens and blues are deep and saturated. They look like Lightning Ridge opals but we have no way to be certain.
The sterling silver setting is bright, clean and highly polished. It is a heavy wide band measuring 7mm at the back of the band. The ring has a total weight including the opal stones of 16.1 grams.
This ring is a show stopper and I have a feeling it will not last long.
