An immense Art Nouveau ring. The glowing opal in the centre shows an impressive play of colour. The stone sits at the centre of a wonderfully crafted setting, with stunningly intricate foliate detailing. The top of the ring appears to have started life as a brooch and been converted into a big, bold dress ring (probably circa 1965). A fine example from one of the early 20th century’s most influential jewellers.
