Petite & Perfect

Petite & Perfect, is a synergy that works well in the opal jewelry world.
We love all types of opal — shapes, sizes, colors and patterns, flaws and all!
And contrary to the belief, bigger isn’t necessarily always better!
When assessing a gem before cutting it, sometimes it’s necessary to cut the gem smaller than intended to achieve a ‘perfect’ opal.


Petite & Perfect Crystal Opal

Crystal Rough

This piece of crystal rough opal is a real firecracker!
Beautiful bright colors dance across the gem.
There is a very noticeable sandspot but we will navigate that, it should be an enjoyable cut!
My goal is to make this a perfect oval, so no dremel is required this time.
Although I will lose some gem color, I aim to make it a supreme cut/shape to increase its value.
It’s important to clean and even out the back of the gem, this helps it sit straight on the dopstick.

The final petite & perfect gem

The color on color with the flakes of flagstone pattern on top of each other gives so much depth of color.
I am genuinely excited about this gem, a Crystal Opal this spectacular would usually end up in my personal collection.
However, I will sell it and that is even more exciting because the joy it will give its eventual new owner is unmatched!

Finishing at 1.17ct, we’re in love!
