the story

The only thing better than an opal ring is an opal and diamond ring!  Originally found as a Victorian brooch, we knew this beautiful opal would look best on a finger, so we added a new 14 karat white gold ring shank to the brooches centerpiece.

The large oval opal measures about 10.7 mm by 8.4 mm and shows fantastic play of color with flashes of orange, green, blue, and pink.  Surrounding the opal are sixteen Old Mine Cut diamonds that alternate between the bigger 0.08 carat diamonds and the smaller 0.01 carat diamonds for a total diamond weight of about 0.72 carats.

The mix of the colorful opal along with the old cut, sparkly diamonds are a killer combination!
