This is a stunningly beautiful ornate sterling silver and 18K yellow gold setting supporting a rare apricot-peach color Peruvian opal cabochon gemstone. The opal measures 15 x 17 mm with the face of the ring measuring approximately 1.25 inches long and 1 inch wide. A beautifully made, intricate design with a detailed under gallery. Weighs a substantial 11.6 grams. This is the national gem of Peru and is fairly rare, being found only in the Andes Mountains. Because of its internal crystalline structure it differs from typical color play opals, instead offering a kind of glow depending on lighting conditions. Peruvian opal is usually found in pink or blue tones with the peach-apricot color being more rare. The color is reminiscent of angel skin coral. This ring is a US size 6 and may be able to be sized upward a little without damaging the setting. Please let me know if you need resizing.
