C.1900-1910. An American Arts & Crafts black opal ring. The opal is beautifully saturated, and shows a magical glow. The ring is 14k yellow gold, and the gold has matte finish. The ring has an open-back setting, and the back side appears to have a potch. With black opals, it is common that the potch can dehydrate and fade as well like this. The ring has been preserved beautifully. Overall it is in great condition.
