A singular cabochon-cut opal sit within the center face of this gorgeous Art Deco ring, held in a sturdy closed-back bezel setting. The opal is surrounded by white gold in flower-petal arrangement, which itself houses petite round-cut diamonds in flush channel settings with milgrain accents. The sides of the ring face are fashioned to depict belt-buckle-like arrangements in diamond-set white gold, transitioning into an 18k yellow gold base with relief details, and a simple yellow gold shank.

Marks: [There are three faint hallmarks on the exterior face of the shank, but not only are they so faint as to be illegible, but they apply only to the shank of the ring, and are not definitive for the ring head/face.]

Please note that some additional minor age wear may be present, as is the case for antique/vintage pieces; some slight scratches, and some slight patina wear are not uncommon. A truly beautiful period ring!
