Rare, Beautiful & Historic Opal

The exceptionally rare & beautiful iridescent opal was in fact one half of a pair of earrings originally belonging to Sophie’s great grandmother who, as a spirited young lady, eloped from Victorian England to exotic Turkey where her husband was involved in building the Ottoman railway. Subsequently they escaped from the Greek / Turkish war on non-other than the Orient Express all the way to Paris! Sophie’s step mother Marie, herself an expert on antique jewellery, wanted Sophie to create a classic and striking ring in 18ct yellow gold using their family heirloom and other diamonds from vintage finds.
