This is a beautiful 18ct gold ring that was most likely made in Belgium and then imported to Paris, France. I can tell this from the hallmarks on the outside of the ring. It was made circa 1900-1910. It has been set with a stunning oval cabochon cut opal that is a good green, blue colour with red flashes. It is surrounded by small rose diamonds that compliment the opal. In the Edwardian period opals were really popular as they went so well with the fashionable light silk and lace clothes worn in soft colours such as ivory and pink and pale green. It sits low on the finger so it is a fairly practical ring to wear.
