This English 9 k Solid Yellow Gold Men's Pinky Ring is set with a FANTASTIC 12x10mm. Again this is opal has BRIGHT. W fire, that is visible across the opal. Also the luster of this opal is marvelous. Many opals only exhibit a couple of colors while this fantastic opal displays a RA.
This is a triplet opal where the brightest genuine & natural solid opal is mounted on backing of onyx and then covered with a protective clear natural quartz crystal cap. We took quite a few photos of this stunning opal under different lighting conditions to give an idea of the abundance and brightness of the fire and where it occurs.
The waves and swirls on the opal in the photos are not blemishes but shadows and reflections as the polished surface is difficult to photograph. This Opal is a Domed Oval Cabochon Cut. Cabochon refers to a gemstone that has been shaped and highly polished instead of being faceted. This opal is in PERFECT PRISTINE CONDITION free of any cracks, scratches, or chips.
This ring is hallmarked in the interior (see photo #11) The date letter is m or w but the outline around the date letter is undetermined. We can make out the Birmingham England assay mark (sideways anchor) This ring is fully hallmarked "375" which is the English marking for 9k solid gold and tests to be at least 9k solid gold. 375 means 375 parts pure gold out of a 1000. (Again this ring is guaranteed to be Solid Gold not plated or layered) This is a smaller frame ring that would work well as a pinky ring or for a woman. Aside from a little pitting in the gold this ring is otherwise in EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION will arrive ready to wear.

Sizing by your local jeweler is relatively inexpensive and you will have a ring that properly fits your finger. All size 9 rings are not the same. The ring may fit on a mandrel and measure as a size 9 but the way the ring is made, the way the ring has been enlarged or reduced, and the finger type you have may make it fit like an 8 or 10 or worse.

An explanation of the measurements in the "Ring Size & Measurements" section.
The tall measurement is the distance from the bottom or shank of the ring to the middle peak of the gemstone most easily measured when wearing the ring and placing the hand flat on the table and measuring the height of the ring from the table. The wide measurement is the width of the ring from outside to outside at the widest point when looking at the ring from the top. The rise from the finger measurement is the height of the ring from the finger to the peak of the gemstone when worn. In the final photo the tick marks on the L-Square are 1 millimeter apart.
