Experimenting with new settings

Thu 12 Apr, 2012

You may have noticed over the last 12 months that we here at Opals Down Under have been experimenting with new settings in the Sterling Silver range.  Utilising a mix of Boulder, Black, and Crystal Opals in very modern, unusual settings, these pieces have been very popular.  

We've had more new pieces just come through to us, most of which are on our website currently.

However, we've been wanting to experiment a little more with these pieces, so we thought we'd try our hand at some Hematite instead of Opal in the settings.

Obviously nowhere near as colourful, but we think you would agree that the natural 'bubbly' texture of this volcanic iron ore looks fantastic in the Silver settings.

These aren't available for purchase DIRECTLY through our website, but if you're interested in one or both of these pieces, please contact us at opals@opalsdownunder and quote either 20152000 (larger Round pendant with Topaz & Sapphire, retailing for AU$450 inc GST) or 20152017 (smaller, more intricate pendant with Topaz & Sapphire, retailing for AU$360 inc GST), and we'll get back to you.
