Platinum, opal, and diamond? Oh my! There is something truly outstanding about the opulence of post-deco, mid 20th century jewels. While we often think of platinum’s meteoric rise during the deco period, the heavy metal continued to dominate fine jewel construction deep into the 70’s even. This opal ring is a tour-de-force of the quality that became standard in luxury during the 50’s.

Fiery opals were considered quite gaudy after the Victorian and deco periods (Queen Elizabeth was presented with a massive 203 carat opal in 1954 during a trip to Adelaide, South Australia, and quickly retired it to the royal vault) but white opals, with their subtle pastels and enchanting golden undertones, remained in fashion for those in the highest circles.
