Opal and Diamond Three Stone Ring
c 2019: Vintage Inspired
What do you get when you cross three stunning opals from a worn out brooch with eight sparkly, old-cut diamonds from a second worn out brooch? Well, if you’re me and you have an amazing jeweler, you get this three stone ring that takes all of its queues from a Victorian Design.
What We Love About It:
Those opals! unlike the more milky opals of today, these are on fire with color – blues, greens and oranges. And the color in each changes with the light. This will definitely be a ring that gets noticed, so make sure you allow time for all of the comments you’ll get when you wear it.
We broke apart two old brooches that were beyond repair and used the vibrant opals from one and the super sparkly diamonds from the other, found a Victorian ring and used it as the mold for our design and ta da! Our opal three stone ring was born. The opals measure: 7.5×5.8mm at the center and the two sides are each 6.4 x 5.5 mm. The diamonds are G-J in color and SI1 – I1 in clarity and are roughly .40ctw. The ring is crafted out of 14kt yellow gold with hand engraved folate shoulders and weighs 6.78g. She’s currently a size 6 US but could be sized up or down by a reputable jeweler with a laser welder.
Have you been looking for a vintage opal ring, but you were too nervous about the condition of an old ring to make a purchase? This is the best of both worlds. The color and sparkle of old stones but in a brand new mounting that mimics Victorian design. What could be better?
