An OPAL dress ring

This ring is too difficult to resist to!, Not signed by any known jeweller and probably of quite modern manufacture, but it is definitely rare and unique and that is the reason why it is here.

It is a beautiful organic design, around a natural form of opal, surrounded by a gold setting in an even more irregular shape. It is pure style!

Opal is a controversial stone. Its name comes from the sanskrit "upala" or from the latin word "Opalus". The romans used to call it "Cupid Paedros" and it was linked to love.
