Out of the dirt and dust of the Australian Outback we have The Melena Ring, a reminder of the colour and the beauty that can be found in the harshest of surroundings. Her 18 carat gold bridge setting frames bold, colourful opals that flash red, green and blue, and a finishing flourish of sparkling diamonds.
