the story

Sourced on the streets of London, this 18 karat yellow gold ring is a colorful piece of history!  Most English rings are fully hallmarked, and this one is no exception.  Made in 1908 in Birmingham, England, it's in incredible condition for its age!  

Set in rich 18 karat yellow gold, this 5-stone ring has emeralds and opals alternating to create a bold color story.  The stones graduate in size, starting with the largest at center, an oval cut opal cabochon, then taper to 2 old cut oval emeralds and finish with 2 smaller oval cut opals.  All 5 stones are prong set at top and bottom with shared prongs at center between each.  The underside of the setting is open allowing light to show through enhancing the opals play-of-color and making the emeralds glow.

A striking ring you'll love to wear, you'll receive complements day and night!
