As these rings are rare and vintage, you may find that sometimes they don't come in the ring size that you are looking for. We suggest try wearing them on other fingers where they may fit. Alternatively we can offer a resizing service for a reasonable extra charge (please contact us directly). Most local jewellers also offer this service. Most rings can usually be resized 1-2 sizes up or down, depending on the design / condition.

Stones: 1 oval opal doublet with very good fire of mostly blue and green and flashes of orange, pink and yellow.  

Weight: 3.4 grams

Era / Hallmark: Maker's Mark: HJ.  '375' for 9ct gold. Birmingham.  1973.

Condition: The gold setting mount, shoulders and ring shank are in excellent condition for its age.  The stone has a chip on the side where it meets the metal.  It is hardly noticeable from the front.   Please zoom in on the photos.  The last photo in this listing provides a close up, but please note that this flaw is more noticeable when magnified.

What I love about this ring:  The stone is just amazing!!  This is the colour of opal that I really love -- shining, shimmering, splendid.  The design is also such a classic statement piece.  It is a really stunning ring.

As with most vintage jewellery, this is rare and unique. This will come to you presented in our branded box - ready to gift to yourself or to someone special.
