Arts & Crafts Black Opal Ring

Arts & Crafts Black Opal Ring

C.1900-1910. An unusual American Arts & Crafts black opal ring. The opal is beautifully saturated, and glows magically. The ring is 14k yellow gold, and has matte finish. The ring has an open-back setting, and the back side appears to have potch. With black opals, it is common that the potch can dehydrate and fade as well like this. No bubbles or glue marks are seen from the face. Overall the ring is in great condition. 

Face (gold frame): Approximately 18mm x 9mm
Ring size: US 5 1/2 (resizable)
