This very pretty Victorian ring from the 1800s, has a colorful round natural opal with an approx. weight of 0.40 cts. The opal is surrounded by a halo of 10 clean and white natural rose cut diamonds, which are very sparkly when catching light. The diamonds face up to be 0.30 cts. The ring is not marked but has been tested to be 10k solid gold--it has the maker's mark "H.B." The ring wears to a size 7 and can be resized.
It would be a great gift for yourself or a special person! Could also make an alternative engagement ring.
Excellent antique condition.
