Opal and diamond ring, circa 1925. Opals owe their phenomenal iridescence to a sub-microscopic network of spherical structures within the stone, which diffract light and create the stone’s famous rainbow colour displays. This black opal has a particularly vivid play of colour, with an intricate marbled iridescence of blue, green and red illuminated against a dark background. Finished with a clever choice of emeralds as the shoulder stones that beautifully echo the opal’s play of colour, this beautiful and poetic Art Deco design would be a characterful addition to any jewellery collection.
Why we love it...
This opal is magnificent, the colours are mesmerising. The gemstone combination is just pure genius.
