Nicest pair of Boulder Opal Earrings we've seen in a while...

Tue 1 Sep, 2009

Without a doubt. This was a custom-made order for a frequent and great customer of ours, and our jeweller, ourselves, and the customer were so happy with how they turned out that we thought we'd share them with you all. It started with a pair of Boulder Opals cut from the one stone - Solid Boulder Opal Pair Then came the design phase. We gathered feedback from the customer, then let our jeweller go to town on the design - Earrings Sketch Then the final product: 18k Yellow Gold, Handmade Earrings with a scooped side to show off the colour bars on both stones. - [caption id="attachment_120" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="The finished product."]The finished product.[/caption] We would love to hear your thoughts on these.
rhys says: From recollection, the stone (which was cut in half) was about AU$1,400, and the setting for the cufflinks was over $3,000 (18k White gold plus the mechanisms). Cufflinks would have to be the most expensive item for us to make at the moment.
