Hardly any other gemstone is surrounded by so many myths and legends as the opal. Many cultures used it as a talisman, which was supposed to bring beauty, luck and success to its wearer; the Greeks even attributed the power of divination to the stone. No wonder, then, that we are still attracted to the ever-changing play of colours of the gemstones from the deserts of Australia. The ring here, dating from the 2nd half of the 20th century, is crafted of 14-karat white gold and holds an Australian full opal in its center. The gemstone has a beautiful play of colours of blues and greens with hints of red, and is accompanied by a total of six diamonds that add to its luminosity. The airy bars of the settings and gallery are a typical identifying feature of jewellery of the years around 1970. The ring is beautifully preserved and is a strikingly beautiful piece of jewellery with a wonderful play of colour.

A dreamlike stone, the opal, whose special brilliance was already praised in the highest tones by the ancient author Pliny at the beginning of the era: "The gentler fire of the carbuncle shows itself on them; the shining purple of the amethyst shows itself; the sea-green of the emerald shows itself and all these colours shine at the same time in an incredible mixture". As a gemstone of love and hope, but also as a symbol of dazzling love, the following centuries have also revered it.
