If there's one thing we love about vintage jewelry it's its uniqueness. So individual! Such fabulous one-off designs. No cookie-cutter stuff. You know, each month we receive a jeweller's trade mag that focusses on new items and it never ceases to amaze me how much of it all looks the same, at least when it comes to rings! So different from what you could buy 40, 60, 80 or more years ago. Ah, give me the vintage and antique anyday. Even with the odd chip or scratch, it still can't be matched for beauty.
So saying, just look at that knockout vintage ring that we listed a couple of days ago. We won this one at via one of those high-end online auction houses ... not eBay by the way ... but a real auction house with huge buyer premiums and all that stuff that makes us groan. But when you can acquire a piece like that ring, it's worth it!
So that dazzler above is 18k and that cushion-shaped oval opal, measuring 9.50mm X 7.30mm is a rainbow of reds, blues, greens. Stunning! Then surrounding it are 28 pinkish-red rubies and locking it all in place is yet another oval halo of 46 old European cut diamonds totalling between 0.30 - 0.40cts. Now that's what I call a gorgeous ring design. SEE MORE PHOTOS AND LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS OPAL/RUBY/DIAMOND RING HERE.
