Once you have selected an opal, the chances are you want to custom design jewelry. Every opal is unique and every piece made is a reflection of the wearer. What they love, what they value. Each piece tells a story.
Along with this desire to create, we also have a added complication of expertise? Your local jeweller might be great with diamonds, but what about opal? Have they worked with it before? Are they knowledgeable? And do they have the right tools to do the work? These are all considerations and more often than not we see jewellers who are unable to do the best by their clients when it comes to opal. This doesn’t mean they aren’t a great jeweller, just that with opal , particularly the more expensive black opal, they haven’t had the experience.
This is where we come in. Our jeweller Peter has been in the opal business for over 40 years. He has made thousands of opal pieces for many of the big opal houses and now makes all our custom pieces exclusively. With Peter your piece will always be handmade. Whilst we can work with CAD, we usually do things the old labour intensive way with hand renderings and wax carving. The result is a bespoke piece of jewelry that could be handed down as an heirloom.
We love working with you to design your dream piece of jewelry, whether it be matching engagement rings, an anniversary ring for your partner and just a special piece for you. Feel free to send us an email and Ruth will work with you to make your dream piece a reality.
