1940s Lighting Ridge Oval Opal RingIrene Byrne & Co
The mix of flash colours is really well balanced and mesmerising in this 1940s Lighting Ridge opal ring.

This ring, simply put, is very elegant. The mount is handmade in 18ct yellow gold.

During the 1940s, women’s clothing became more masculine with structured shoulders and nipped waists, so their jewellery became more feminine. Large brooches set with colourful jewels made their way into the spotlight and larger, more layered necklaces adorned the necks of most women who frequented lavish soirees. Larger rings with more angular cut stones were also popular and often incorporated the stepped shoulder design used during the Art Deco period that preceded it.
