AN ANTIQUE 14KYELLOW GOLD &NATURALAUSTRALIAN OPAL RING!
THIS EXQUISITELY ALL HAND ENGRAVED AND CARVED REAL GOLD& OPAL RING IS WELL OVER 50 YEARS OLD AND IN PERFECT CONDITION. THE RING IS METICULOUSLY CRAFTED IN EXTRA HEAVY, THICK AND ALL SOLID (NOT HOLLOW CAST LIKE MOST NEW GOLD JEWELRY THAT IS MADE TO LOOK HEAVY BUT ACTUALLY IS VERY LIGHTWEIGHT) 14KT YELLOW GOLDHAVING AN UNPRECEDENTED WEIGHT OF 9.8 GRAMS (ABOUT 1/3 TROY OUNCE) WHICH IS AMAZING WITH GOLD PRICES AROUND $1,600.00 PER TROY OUNCE ~ THAT'S SOMETHING YOU'LL NEVER FIND TODAY IN ANY MALL, CHAIN OR DEPARTMENT TYPE JEWELRY STORE! IT'S WHY I LOVE THE FINEST IN ESTATE ~ VINTAGE & ANTIQUE JEWELRY AS YOU GET SO MUCH BETTER QUALITY AND ALWAYS AT A MUCH BETTER PRICE. THE ASTONISHING DETAILING IS REMARKABLE WITH THE FOLIATE SCROLLING PATTERNS BEING SO VIVID, CRISP AND UNWORN. NOW, THE BEST PART MUST BE THE OUTSTANDING TOP QUALITY ALL 100% NATURAL OPAL GEMSTONE THAT'S SO BEAUTIFULLY BEZEL SET ON TOP. THIS LARGE (9mm BY 7.2mm~ LENGTH & WIDTH) OPAL IS SO VIBRANT AND DISPLAYS FABULOUS COLORS OF RED, BLUE, VIOLET, ORANGE & GREEN. IT'S TRULY ASPECTACULAR OPAL AS EVEN THE CLARITY IS VERY TRANSLUCENT BEING NOT AT ALL MILKY OR CLOUDY. EVEN WHEN LOOKING THROUGH THE BACK, THIS GORGEOUS AUSTRALIAN OPAL GEM SHOWS NO IMPERFECTIONS, IT ALSO PROVES THIS IS NOT A DUBLET, TRIPLET, HEATED OR MAN MADE OPAL. THIS OPALIS ALL SOLID THROUGH & THROUGH. PLEASE DON'T GET FOOLED BY SELLERS THAT EITHER DON'T SAY OR DON'T KNOW THE IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE AND HUGE PRICE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REAL SOLID OPAL AND A DUBLET/TRIPLET WHICH IS A TECHNIQUE OF TAKING A THIN SLIVER OF REAL OPAL AND BACKING IT WITH A MATRIX SO IT APPEARS THICK. THIS IS A GOOD SIZED RING WITH THE TOP BEING 14mm TALL (VERTICALLY) WITH THE WIDTH COVERING THE ENTIRE TOP OF THE FINGER. OPALS SUCH AS THIS ARE A RARE TREAT TODAY AND THIS VEING PERFECTLY SUITED FOR BOTH A MAN OR A WOMAN WITH FASHIONS OF TODAY. IT WAS SURELY DESIGNED ORIGINALLY TO BE A MAN'S RING BUT NOW THAT LADIES RINGS HAVE SURPASSED THE TINY ENGAGEMENT RINGS OF THE 1940'S. IT IS PERFECTLY SUITED FOR A WOMAN TO WEAR. I'VE WORN IT MYSELF FOR WELL OVER A DECADE HAVING OBTAINED IT MANY YEARS AGO FROM AN ESTATE I WAS HANDLING IN BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA OF AMOVIE STUDIO EXECUTIVE. I CAN'T BEGIN TO EXPRESS HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE ADMIRED AND PAID ME A COMPLIMENT EVERYTIME I WORE THIS SPECTACULAR ANTIQUE 14KTYELLOW REAL GOLD & NATURAL AUSTRALIAN OPAL RING. EVERY ASPECT IS JUST SO SUPERIOR TO ANYTHING MADE TODAY. IT'S SURELY WHY THE GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST APPRAISER PROVIDED AN INSURANCE REPLACEMENT APPRAISAL WITH AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE OF $6,012.00. THAT'S AN EVALUATION THAT ASSUMES YOU CAN FIND OR HAVE A COMPARABLE RING MADE BUT THIS IS TRULY A ONE OF A KIND UNLIKE THE MASS PRODUCED RINGS OF TODAY. IT'S SURELY A RARE AND EXCEPTIONAL TREAT FOR ANYONE WHO DESIRES A LARGE SCALE RING THAT'S SUPERBLY CRAFTED IN REAL 14KT YELLOW GOLD AND SET WITH A SUPERIOR NATURAL OPAL. WHAT'S EVEN RARER IS THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE SUCH PERFECTION BEING OFFERED IN A REAL sale WITH NO HIDDEN PRICE OR SECRET AMOUNT REQUIRED TO WIN THIS EXTROARDINARY MASTERPIECE. JUST offer AS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE AS SIMPLY PUT; WHEN THE sale ENDS HIGH buyer WINS REGARDLESS OF THE FINAL BARGAIN SELLING PRICE.
