Australian Opal Jewelry

$0

We prefer Australian opals, especially those from Lightening Ridge, as we find them to be less delicate. But mostly when we think about opals we love the variety- that one of a kind fire color formation. Also, there’s an uncovering process. Rough opals are covered in a sediment so you are not typically sure what you have underneath. We try to cut them to maximize the fire and frame the fire color, almost like framing a picture.

Australian Opal Rings

Our rings are made with either small, medium or large stones. For a visual comparison of stone sizes, see here. We offer two band styles - one is a sterling silver base with our gold blend embedded into it, the other is a 14k yellow gold base with the same gold blend. The settings are typically 14k rose, 14k white and 18k yellow claws, though medium and large stones sometimes require a different combination.

Australian Opal Earrings

We offer stud and hook earring styles, as well as earring drops which can be worn with our hooks and studs. Studs come in two sizes, which can be seen here. Hooks and drops vary in size depending on the specific stone, Large studs and hooks are made of 14k rose and white gold and 18k yellow with a 14k yellow gold earwire. Small studs are all 14k yellow gold.

Australian Opal Pendants

Our pendants are made with either small or large size stones. Small stone pendants range from 5mm-10mm and large pendants are 10mm-20mm. We sell them without a chain or with a 16, 18, 20" 14k box or cable chain. The box chains are sparkly and dainty whereas the cable chains are sturdy and better for larger stones, as can be seen here. Small pendants are typically made of 14k yellow, rose and white gold, large pendants are typically 14k rose, and white and 18k yellow gold.

Australian Opal Cuffs

Our cuffs are made with small or large size stones. The cuff itself is made of oxidized sterling silver with our gold blend embedded into it. The settings are typically 14k yellow gold but sometimes include other colors and carat weights.
