CARTIER Magnificent Black Opal Ring

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is an absolutely amazing Australian Lightening Ridge Black Opal in a masterfully made Platinum & Diamond setting by Cartier. As a top design house, Cartier handpicks the finest materials for their jewelry. This black opal is a true testament to that statement, extremely fine with tremendous red flashes of color. The opal lights up from every angle with unrelenting patterns and color. Ring design is held to the same unremarkable precedent established for Cartier gems. This ring boasts a new take on a classic bail design, implementing eighteen matching Oval Brilliant Cut Diamonds, conservatively graded E-F color and VVS-VS1 clarity weighing over 4.50 carats. The setting is handmade, each wire formed by hand and soldered, each stone perfectly assured. The ring as a whole is well rounded and a very detailed work or art, one deserving of its Cartier stamp of approval.
