While opals had been known and admired since around 4000 BCE and written about effusively through the Roman empire, it wasn't until the best quality stones were found in Australia in the 1860s that they truly began to boom in popularity. Queen Victorian was a known lover of opal, and this late Victorian ring would have been as coveted when it was new as it is now. Crisp, sparkling old cut diamonds create a halo around a central opal, flanked on either side with another opal and all set into buttery, high karat gold. While trilogy rings are often chosen for anniversaries (the opals representing past, present, and future respectively), this ring would also make a lovely wedding day "something old," or elevated stacking ring.

Please keep in mind that opals are not compatible with hand sanitizers/alcohols.

Very good antique condition with wear in line with age and use. Minor past glue visible around centre opal; two diamonds appear to be replacements including one round brilliant.
