What a sweetheart ring we have here. The heart shaped solid opal is bordered by 13 natural seed pearls. Pearls have have had a long symbolic history dating back to the Neolithic period 8,000 years ago. Their history and meaning spans across the ages having a different meaning dependant on culture and religion.  Today we often attribute them to femininity and innocence. Opals are a symbol of hope, purity and truth. In ancient times, they were believed to have fallen from to earth from the skies during a thunderstorm and what remained was  the lighting within. They were believed to have the ability to see into the future. We dont often see antique heart shaped rings, especially one from the 1930s. This is a great gift for a loved one to celebrate a special moment or just to say i love you.

The 1930s saw a departure from the carefree flapper style of the 20s and a new decade began with the glamour that was oozing out of Hollywood. The dress clip was the most popular piece of jewellery at the time worn on the neckline and soon being designed in a double incorporating the symmetry featured so heavily in the designs of the Art Deco period. The slim line and fine details in rings and bracelets seen in the 20s were expanded on and bracelets became wider while rings became more elongated both horizontally and vertically on the fingers. Men wore Cartier’s bejewelled cufflinks and diamond studded brooches, which brought an air of glamour to their masculinity.
