Steeped in old world charm this big bold and beautiful 9ct gold opal and diamond 'boat' ring bears English hallmarks for 1971.
Inspired by Edwardian design the face of ring is set with 3 large opals accented by 6 little round sparkling diamonds all held in place by a multitude of curvy decorative claws. The opals possess a very pretty play of colour: pastel pink, blue and green with the flashes of fire red. An impressively large ring that provides marvelous finger coverage the front is gently curved with sloping shoulders that lead to a thick wide gold band and the gemstones stretch across the entire front of the finger from side to side.
A gorgeous Edwardian style boat ring in October's birthstone, perfect for the antique jewellery lover who doesn't do demure!
