2 opals form the centerpiece of this lovely natural opal, ruby and peridot 15k gold ring, hallmarked Birmingham and dating to 1866. Curlicues, whorls and incising add interest to this sentimental Victorian ring. Opals were among Queen Victoria's favorite stones and were believed in ancient times to bring good fortune to its wearer. Peridots were believed by the ancients to symbolize rebirth and renewal, while rubies symbolize loyalty, friendship, and love. Looks beautiful and feminine on the hand. A must for any woman's jewelry wardrobe. The ring is a US 7 and can be sized.
