Though opals have had an (unfounded) reputation for bringing on bad luck, many cultures throughout history held the stone in the highest regard. Ancient Arabic tribes thought that opals were sent from heaven to earth on a lightning bolt. Roman Caesars gave their wives opals for good luck and associated them with the god of love. The Greeks believed a quality opal could bring foresight and clear visions to its owner.

We felt incredibly lucky when we found this fully hallmarked Victorian Era opal ring. An oval opal sits center stage and casts a rainbow kaleidoscope of color and magic. During the 19th century, almost all opal mining was conducted in Australia, and the rich fire of this particular opal is spectacular evidence as to why. On either side of the opal sit an equally impressive gem. Two heart-shaped fuschia colored garnets hand cut to perfection. Four small emeralds are set into an Etruscan inspired face, while the shoulders and shank are engraved with a lovely floral scene.  

This colorful Victorian ring is a true treasure and one elegant good luck charm.
