Pick of the Week

Sat 7 Feb, 2009

This is the part I'll look forward to a lot...being able to show everyone my favourite item of the week. We have so many beautiful stones and jewellery pieces in our store, it makes for hard decisions, but there are a few that stand out. This week, I've chosen a relatively new piece that our jeweller has made for us, using one of our more older stones.

The opal used in the setting has such a striking pattern, and to be honest, I don't know why it hasn't been picked up before it was set. Sometimes though, we do find a lot of customers have trouble visualising how the stone could be set...but that's what we are here for! What do you all think of this style of setting?
