An impressive 18ct gold ring set with a large black opal that was made circa 1920-1920 when black opals were in vogue. This is a beautiful black opal. The colours are like peacock feathers with great depth of colour. The opal originates from Lightning Ridge in Australia. The first recorded black opal was found there in 1873. It is the only place where black opals are sourced.
