Recently we went on a buying trip to Sydney to go to the International Jewellery Fair to hand pick some new interesting pieces for stock, new tools for the workshop and to see what is new and trending in the jewellery world. We came across some beautiful opals and that is what I want to show you today as Opal is the birthstone for October.
We now have some beautiful green and blue opal with swirling colours that look as deep as the southern ocean that we live close to and some stones with so much glittering red and orange they look like they are on fire. We are waiting on you to come in with your designs to turn these beautiful opals into your own cherished pieces.
An interesting piece of trivia - about 90% of the worlds opal is mined from Australia and it is our national gemstone.
