Mid Century 14k Gold and Opal Ring
I love this ring! Designed in a mid century bamboo motif and hand made in 14k yellow gold, it showcases 3 absolutely beautiful opals. They are each set with six prongs and are "floating" inside of their own little bamboo frame. Enhancing the design are two elongated bamboo branches that extend at the top and bottom between the small oval frames. The motif is further highlighted by just a touch of natural patina. The design itself is ultra fabulous but really the best part has to be the opals!! They are relatively translucent with a strong blue cast and flashes of green, pink and purple. All the colors you want to see in an opal! The center stone measures 6mm by 5mm and the two side stones are approximately 5mm by 4mm. The bamboo detail continues down onto the shoulders where it then tapers down to a simple 3mm wide shank. The inside has a very faint 14k mark and does test accordingly. Currently the ring measures a 7 on the mandrel and is sizable upon request.
