What makes opal jewelry so beautiful?

In my humble opinion, it is the infinite variety of color and pattern that makes opal special. Opal has more variety than any other gem and is therefore suited to a wide range of different tastes and preferences.  
Opal has two levels of color, the base (or background) color and the pattern color (seen as a play of color in a distinctive pattern). Base color ranges from crystal clear through translucent blues or greens, to opaque, pearly white and darker colors through to black. The pattern colours seen overlying the base color of opal can roll, flicker or change as the opal is moved. These colours have great variety, from pastels to bold hues that can cover the entire spectrum of color from red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet.
With so much variety, there is an opal out there for everybody!

Myths and facts about opal and care of the precious gem.

Myth: Opal must be periodically immersed in water to prevent it drying out and cracking.

Fact:This is probably the most common opal myth. The water content of opal is actually determined during its formation, with water molecules locked in minute voids within opal's crystalline silicon structure. Opal is not porous and will not soak up water. Stable opal has a water content ranging from approximately three to ten percent. Opal may crack or craze if the water content is outside of this stable range. The most likely reason for the propagation of this myth is that immersing a cracked opal in water results in the water infilling the crack, hiding the flaw and improving the look of the stone for a very short time.
Responsible opal merchants source their rough opal from fields that are renowned for producing stable opal and hold their stock of opal for a sufficient amount of time (in a dry environment) to ensure that it does not develop flaws.

Myth: Opals should be rubbed with oil or glycerin to preserve color and prevent cracking.
Fact:
For the same reasons given above, oil will not improve the stability of opal. Oil may cause a scratched or dull opal to appear shinier and therefore brighter. The best way to improve a scratched, dull stone is to have it re-polished by a qualified opal cutter.

Myth: Opal is unlucky unless it is your birthstone.

Fact: There is some debate over the origin of this myth. Some believe that diamond merchants perpetuated this rumour because they believed the popularity of opal would reduce diamond sales. Another suggestion is that Sir Walter Scott in a 19th century novel Anne of Geierstein (1829) represented the changing fortunes of the heroine as a manifestation of her opal. In the minds of her readers opal became associated with misfortune.
Alternatively, there are just as many tales of magical opals that bring the bearers good luck and good health! Ancient Greeks believed that opal gave the owner the ability to predict the future. The Romans believed that like a rainbow, opal brought good luck to the owner and valued the opal as a talisman and protection from disease. People from the Orient regarded opal as sacred.

Hi Laszlo,

I just wanted to let you know that I have received the opal ring and
earrings set and I am really happy with the fininshed product. I've always

price. Thank you for making up the design for me - you did a fabulous job
and I am more than satisfied.

Kind Regards,
Lisa - Sydney, Australia


Mr. Katona,

I had a feeling when I first E-mailed you that I could trust your judgement, and your professional skills in creating a "dream" ring to present my wife. From what I can tell from the photo....it is everything I expected and more....you should advertise a ring of this nature....THANKS SO MUCH... I know I'll have a very happy anniversary. Thank you very much for your promptness in replying to my changes in design....you have created my (our) masterpiece!!! You and your staff are the greatest....

Hi Laszlo and Debbi,
I wanted to let you know that we thought the opal ring is really beautiful. It has different colours in different lights, it has brought and continues to bring us both joy. We are happily engaged and wanted to thank for your delivering such a beautiful ring.

I finally received my ring. I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw it. It is wonderful. You did a fantastic job on it. The colors and sparkles remind me of the ocean. I want to thank you for your beautiful creation. You were correct when you said it will be worth the wait. I feel like I am " On Top of the World" when I wear it. I show it off to everyone. A few people have expressed interest in it and I am going to give them your web site. If I ever get to Australia I'd like to stop by personally thank you.

Regards,
Bob - Florida USA

Its the perfect size and is constructed in an extremely comfortable fashion. The opals are even more dazzling than I imagined. Thank you so much for my beautiful ring.

Hello,

I wanted to let you know that the opal pendant I ordered from you arrived safely in my mailbox today! It is absolutely beautiful and it looks exactly as I hoped it would. I have never ordered any jewelry through the mail before, and I was a little scared that it might not look exactly as pictured, but I want you to know that I am very happy with the pendant and will wear it many times in the future. Thank you for your fine work!! It is beautiful.....

Sincerely,
Kathryn - Massachussets, USA

Thank you thank you thank you. You do amazingly beauitful work, it's is way beyond my wildest expectations. Feel proud, you are a true artist.

Gary - Sydney, Australia


Hi Laszlo,

If you have business cards, can you throw a few in with my next shipment. I am getting a lot of compliments on my ring, and I'd like to give people your contact info if they think they might want one. One of the people who asked about it was a stranger at a shopping mall - she said she thought all opal was white - had never seen such a blue color. She went nuts over it.

Thanks

Linda - California USA


Dear Les & Debbi,

I just received a ring from your business for a college graduation present from my children. I found your web site on line and was very impressed at what I saw! I was even happier to read that you make rings to requested size. It is difficult to find an opal ring in larger sizes to wear on a finger other than the ring finger!

I will be sure to share my satisfaction with my fellow "jewelry friends" especially those whom are opal lovers!

Beautiful ring, great job, Thank you!

Vicki - Lancaster USA

Dear Les & Debbi

The 'package' arrived safely this morning and I only have a couple of minutes before my wife wonders what is going on. It is absolutely stunning, even better than I expected - my mouth dropped open - no kidding. Many thanks again and best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year.

Craig - Scotland


Thank you so very much for the ring.  It arrived just in time and my wife is thrilled.  Your quality is excellent.  I will be back in touch for future purchases.  Please keep me in mind for your mailing list or catalog.... Again, thank you for working so hard for me to get this done by Christmas!

Skip - Alabama USA


Received the beautiful ring 2 days ago and I love it.  About 18 years ago I had my first encounter with Australian opals at a shop specializing in them in San Diego.  I saw the most beautiful ring there I had ever seen but could not afford it.  I have looked around for years and never saw anything like it until I came across your website.  I now have that ring I have wanted for 18 years.  Thank you both so much.

Jerry - Georgia


Earrings arrived today, Thanks for the great service, fantastic quality jewellery, will have to order matching pendant in time for Xmas.

Thanks Robert - New Zealand

Hello, 
I received the most beautiful ring today.  I cannot express how truly happy I am with the fine workmanship of the inlaid stones and their beauty.  I will definitely keep your card with me for not only my future orders, but I am sure that there will be inquiries by those that see my new ring.  

Many thanks,
Joan - California


Dear Debbi and Laszlo,
My fiancé, Penny, wore her Opal Pendant for the first time today and she was absolutely thrilled to bits. She said it was wonderful and very special and that she will wear it all the time. She was most impressed that I went to the trouble to order an opal from half way round the world and I told her that Australia is the best place to go for opals. I looked at a lot of websites before deciding that yours was the best, which it is by a long way. So I would like to say again how great it has been doing business with you and to say thank you for bringing this extra joy and happiness into our lives with your exquisite and beautiful opal jewellery.

Thank you very much.
Gary - United Kingdom

I received the cross today! WOW! It is everything I had hoped for and more. The opals are phenomenal, and your workmanship and artistry is fantastic! I can not thank you enough!

Tim - New Jersey


Les & Debbi,

I received my opal ring IR15 today.  I am amazed, delighted and so happy with the craftsmanship.  The inlay colors are just all that I was hoping for in a dream ring. My ring is perfect!  The careful packaging is very appreciated and the bonus ring box was a nice surprise too. Your ongoing e-mails really show your remarkable standards for customer service.  I appreciate the good care.

Thank you, Carol

Hi Laszlo,
I just wanted to let you know that I received my beautiful earrings today.  I was hesitant about ordering earrings from a website - but you gave so much detail regarding size and colour that I was confident that I would be happy with them.  When the earrings arrived they are exactly as described on the website - but so so so much nicer!!  The quality is VERY impressive and I can really see value for money.  As you can tell - I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase.  Thank you so much - I will treasure these earrings forever!

Regards, Jenny (Queensland, Australia)


Hi Debbi,
Our rings have been received and they are absolutely awesome!!  Thank you so much!

Peggy, California USA


Hi Laszlo and Debbi,
All I can say is oh my gosh, my ring is gorgeous!  Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.  It's a perfect wedding anniversary present.  My husband and I began our journey together in Australia, returning to the US and marrying.  What a perfect piece of Australia to enjoy forever.
Thank you again,
Mindy and Tim, USA


You all are amazing. I knew it was a long shot to get my fiance's ring in time for the ceremony, but I asked you to expedite the order if possible anyway. It arrived with 2 days to spare and was absolutely beautiful. We were both very impressed with the quality. He is thrilled with it and we both are so appreciative of the extra effort to have it here in time. It made our wedding day! Thank you again.
Terri and Jack - Oklahoma, USA
