It looks Victorian. Sometimes the shank on an older ring has been replaced but yours appears original. Oftentimes you can see a solder mark or discoloration where the shank connects the top section if the shank has been replaced. Enjoy wearing your band! It's colorful.

The opals setting & the wear is consistent with antique but im not expert in evaluating age yet.

Either way I commented because it's a beautiful ring! I love how much color payoff you get for such a teensy ring!

thank you so much, this is what I had assumed as well, it definitely all looks original.

Beautiful ring, wonderful Opals too.
dating rings is nigh impossible without hallmarks because the style, Victorian, has been “repeated” over the decades as its such a wonderful look.
if the ring gold tests for a weird assay, ie 15ct, that’s a good indicator of being antique vs reproduction.
If no hallmarks, I’d say just love it and enjoy it for the beauty it is.
