A platinum ring set with a very fine 5.12 carat 'Lightning Ridge' black opal, surrounded by brilliant cut diamonds. The opal in this piece is a solid Australian black opal from 'Lightning Ridge'. It exhibits a blue green play of colour on an N1 body tone. The opal is further accented by a halo of SI clarity diamonds set in platinum, making the opal pop with colour. The ring is unsigned, however is stamped 'Pt900' to indicate that it is manufactured from platinum. There is also a registration number '512 085' stamped inside the shank. An absolutely stunning example of how beautiful a Lightning Ridge opal can be.
