Sustainably sourced opals

Our opals are sourced from a small family business with deep Australian roots and a commitment to using the best sustainable practices during the entire opal handling process. Knowing the origin of these special gemstones is very important to us, and we always choose vibrant solid opals with beautiful colour to use in our jewellery.
