The Story:

A wildly beautiful conversion piece, this ring consists of fine historic components remastered into a bold statement ring. The primary mount of the ring is a circa 1920s to 1930s pavé set diamond wrist watch case, which would have originally held a clock face covered by crystal glass. This case is undoubtedly Deco, with geometric linearity that creates marvelous finger coverage north to south. This diamond-set case is truly reminiscent of the Empire State Building which was an icon of the Art Deco movement and inspired designs of that era. When viewed from its reverse, the ring’s wrist watch inception is on full display, and one can envision how the mounting was once its former form. 

At some point in history, this clock face and crystal were removed, and the casing was repurposed to feature an extraordinary half-spherical precious opal cabochon. This lively opal is secured by four corner prongs which appear to extend from the modified squarish opening of the case (the opening of which is fully visible from the underside of the ring). It is fully rounded, a near perfect circle domed to create a dramatic silhouette. This stone is filled with peachy-orange, mint green, sky blue, pale yellow and bright white flecks against a creamy body-color, and the chromatic diffraction flashes and bounces from all angles, including its underside base. Such light play sets this opal apart from the common types, and the shape of the stone emphasizes the colors’ animation.

The shank of the ring is very simple and streamlined so as to draw attention to the headlining face. It is a rounded band, made of 14k white gold and is an elegant 1.8 mm wide. This ring is a true showstopper, a genuine one-off with virtually no other comparables. This opal is not a tablet, a doublet or a triplet, but a solid opal gemstone. With a chunky, sleek, energetic opal set proud of the upcycled diamond mounting, this ring is vivid and spirited, a true rarity and collector’s piece.

Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer.
