The story of our Australian gemstone began millions of years ago when parts of Australia were covered by a vast inland sea.
Over a long period of time as the sea evaporated forming a "desert sea", silica stone transformed itself into what we know as Opal…..
We have now taken our National Gemstone & joined it once again with the Essence of the Sea washed up onto our sandy shores, marrying them into a very creative & unique Jewelry range that is purely "Oceanic Australia" at it's heart!
Whether they are the dangle style or stud type, Our Earrings are made to be worn with comfort and ease !
Whether worn for daytime or evening our earrings are always a delight to wear!
Our Rings are individual in their make-up using natural & genuine Australian Opal from the various mining fields of Lightning Ridge, CooberPedy, Koroit & the Queensland Mining Fields.....
.... these were the words written on the signs that greeted me on my very first trip to the "fabled" Mining town of Lightning Ridge back in 1972...
