Late Victorian 10kt Opal & Enamel Conversion Ring
A fantastic opal conversion ring from the Late Victorian (ca1900) era! Originally an antique stick pin, this beautiful piece has been expertly converted into a stylish ring. Made of 10kt yellow gold, the ring features the original stick pin head as the centerpiece, and what used to be the straight pin has now been repurposed as a gold band. The centerpiece features a gorgeous opal cabochon that is prong set at the center of a black enameled border. The opal itself is quite mesmerizing, exhibiting a range of iridescent colors in vibrant shades of green, blue, violet, and orange. A charming everyday ring, it is perfect for the opal lover and a wonderful example of antique conversion jewelry!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.25, but could be easily resized up or down if necessary. The opal and enamel centerpiece has a 5/8" diameter and rests 1/4" above the band.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or to the opal cabochon, which is intact and securely prong set. The enamel details remain in good condition, with no visible chips or scratches.
