ANTIQUE VICTORIAN Black Crystal Opal 14K HEARTS FILIGREE HUGE COCKTAIL RING BOX

You are bidding on a Tremendous Antique Victorian Black Opal and 14K gold filigree Ring....Excellant Condition with a stunning time honored Creamy Patina on Gold!! This is one of the finest Victorian rings we have ever come across and is definitely Not for the Faint of Heart. Measures 1 full inch top to bottom, 3/4" wide and sits 1/2" high. Heavy gold ball & Hearts Filigree completely surrounds all 9 prong set Black Opals in a large full bodied marquise shape, and then wraps around to form a substantial mirror image Heart undergallery which sits fairly high off the finger. Ring offers 2+ carats of Remarkable Black crystal Opals with tremendous blue green fire with just a hint of pink! The center Opal measures 9mm by 7mm, and each of the remaining stones 4mm round. There are 7.2 grams of solid 14K gold in this ring, it is not a flimsy small ring, but quite substantial ~ as I said above not for the faint of Heart. Pictures just do not do justice to this Beauty...it is soo much better in person. Ring is currently a roomy size 7 and definitely could be sized by your jeweler if needed. Clearly marked inside band, 14K. If you have any doubts as to the value of this estate beauty, please see what other 19th century Victorian Black Opal rings are
