I adore this ring so much, I was tempted NOT to write this post. I would love to keep it! The second piece in our countdown introduces a new stone to the Privé collection: opal.
What it is: 4.50 carat black opal set in 18K yellow gold. Accent stones comprise round diamonds, green tsavorite garnets, and pear-shape sapphires.
Why it’s cool: This black opal has extraordinary play of color. Its vivid blues and greens are striking. The ring sits low against the finger, making it easy to wear. High-polish yellow gold plays off the hue palette of the opal.
Why it’s “Privé”: This ring transitions from a classic style, featuring pavé-set diamond and garnet melee, while embracing an edgy, more stylish look. The piece was designed specifically for this opal, with the sapphire pair and tsavorites distinctively selected to accentuate the gem’s play of color.
