Vintage Australian Opal Bangle with Diamonds 7.45ctw by Casbah

HB2002

Featured is a very interesting and unique bangle bracelet riddled with precious diamond’s and natural opal’s. The bangle is a vintage piece most likely crafted in the 1960s and it is extraordinarily well-crafted. The hallmark on its interior is ‘Casbah’ which is obviously the designer however we cannot find any information regarding this design house. What is interesting is the meaning behind the word which is a type of fortress, and this bangle is certainly crafted like a fortress as it is extremely sturdy yet is adorned with gemstone’s one would want to protect. The bangle is crafted of solid 14kt yellow gold and where diamonds are encrusted, it is white gold. There is a marquise cabochon cut Australian opal at its center weighing about a 1/2 carat and it displays the most intense blue bodycolor with green, orange and pink colorplay. The center gem does have a noticeable chip on its side which is unfortunate, but does not detract from the piece. The piece is encrusted with 14 pear cabochon and 16 round cabochon opals which is perfectly matched as well as 50 round full cut natural diamonds all arranged in a fluid yet symmetrical design. The total carat weight of all of the gem’s is 7.45 carats and the bangle weighs 42.6 grams. The interior length measures 2 1/4” and its width measures 2”. It’s is excellent condition.
