10kt Opal Halo Ring, Size 6, Early 1900's
Vintage 10kt to 12kt Opal Halo Ring, Size 6, 2.70 grams. Early 1900's, Appx. 2.14tcw. The main stone is 9.5mm by 7mm with ten 3.5mm stones. Exact measurements are not possible due to setting. This tests positive as 10kt and mildly as 14kt which often points to the gold as being 12kt - which was often used in Victorian times into the early 1900's. This is not signed by them maker or marked - or wore off. The center stone sits higher than the halo around it. It has a lot of play of color in the opals - one of the best I have seen in my jewelry handling years. Very good condition even for it's vintage - the stones are in very good condition - no cracks or chips that I saw under magnification. Any stripes you see in the stones are the reflection of a LCD lamp strip. A great estate find. This came from a northern central PA estate. (Lot. Loc. W.720.19G2.11X- LD 7/23/19).
We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
