Mid Century Lightning Ridge Mine Black Opal Cocktail Ring

$25,740 $33,000
The San Jose is a fab Mid Century black opal and diamond cocktail ring. With a fabulous play of color, flashing between electric blue and green, this interesting statement ring is smartly surrounded by a 1 1/2 carat halo of 12 sparkling pear shape, marquise cut and round diamonds held within milgrained bezels. At over 4 1/2 carats, this rare gemstone, nestled in an 18k yellow gold bezel offers a grand amount of finger-coverage, yet sits at a comfortable height for a low, dome effect.

Lightning Ridge produces the most valuable type of opal on the market. The high quality, rarity, and uniqueness makes black opal highly sought after for fine jewelry designers and investment collectors. This, however, creates challenges due to the fact that there are more buyers than mines, making gem quality opal scarce.
