A sweetly styled opal and diamond version of a late Victorian favourite - the "boat" ring is traditionally crafted as a tapered row of five stones across the finger, often with a subtle boat-shaped frame edging them. We love this style for its finger coverage, low rise, and easy to wear style - not to mention the seemingly endless variations in stone combinations. Though this ring dates into the Art Deco era, it's easy to see the longstanding influence of the Victorian style. This ring also boasts a secret design detail, with swirling cut-outs in the gallery, a nod to the delicate filigree-like work so common in the Edwardian and Art Deco periods.

Crisp, sparkling diamonds pop between each magical and fiery opal, all set low and comfortably into buttery, high karat gold.. While five stone rings are often chosen for anniversaries, this ring would make a wedding day "something old," or elevated stacking ring.

Excellent antique condition with very moderate wear to the gold and stones. Band is sturdy and settings are secure.
