About

A fine and impressive antique Victorian opal and 0.20 carat diamond, 18 karat yellow gold dress ring; part of our antique jewelry and estate jewelry collections

This fine and impressive antique opal ring has been crafted in 18k yellow gold.

The three graduating round cabochon opals are displayed alternately between two pairs of Old European round cut diamonds in an impressive multi-claw setting.

The opals are described as 'white' on the grading card,' they all however display an impressive play of color.

The elevated flared ring shoulders integrate into the setting and are ornamented with a very subtle groove.

The shoulders blend seamlessly into the plain 18k yellow gold fully hallmarked ring shank.

The hallmarks to the interior of the shank includes the 18k fineness hallmark 750, the Chester Assay Office mark (three sheaves), the date letter for 1895 (M), and the maker's mark 'BH Joseph & Co' (BHJ & Co.).

This antique ring is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.
