“Siete Colores” opal ring is created around a peak-shaped Australian boulder opal (16.46ct) with its slopes showing layers of banded colour-play. This stripy arrangement of colour is reminiscent of a distinctly patterned Peruvian mountain range, after which this pace is named. Set in 18K rose gold, 64 round brilliant-cut diamonds (0.227ct) outline the fabulous Australian opal heirloom piece. Impressive and timeless, this statement ring steals any show. Designed for Opal Minded by Renata Bernard.
The gemstone at the centre of this piece is an Australian black boulder opal from opal fields near Winton in Queensland, Australia. It is expertly cut to reveal the vivid colour play of two intersecting planes of precious opal. Such opal cutting expertise is as rare as the combination of this particular structure of opal and the strength of its vivid colour-play. True rarity.
In general, the distinctive characteristic of precious opal is its “play of colour,” a phenomenon that manifests in opal colours shifting and changing as the gem moves. Australian opals, in general, are the quality benchmark in the world family of opals owing to their beauty and durability. This particular opal is an outstanding quality Australian gem, superbly cut and showing an unusual banded colour play. The dominant electric blues and greens give way to warmer colours of the rainbow. A one-of-a-kind gem not to be matched by another.
This opal ring arrives in a gun-metal aluminum box inside a paper orange box. It is complete with Opal Minded bow-tied carry bag and the first edition of Opal Minded Lookbook, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity. Opal Minded life-long complimentary opal care service is also included.
