Design our next pendant!

Opals Down Under, the Sunshine Coast’s premier Opal Specialists wants YOUR input.


We are currently developing some new designs for a range of Sterling Silver Opal Pendants, but during the process, we thought who better to tell us what they want in a pendant than the customer.


So, we want YOU to design us a new pendant as part of our Sterling Silver range.


Be creative. Be bold.


The design needs to encapsulate a modern, contemporary look – it needs to make a statement, but also be versatile. A piece that will last the ages and will look good whether you are dressed up, or dressed down.


So, here are some of the guidelines we need you to adhere to:


  1. It must be a pendant, and must be in Sterling Silver.
  2. It will incorporate a 6mm Round Cut Opal (most likely Boulder or Black Opal), blue/aqua/turquoise in colour.
  3. The design can utilise up to 3 coloured gem accent stones, up to 3mm Round maximum.  These accent stones can either be Amethyst, Citrine, Peridot, Garnet, Sapphire or Pale Blue Topaz. It can be one type or a mix.
  4. Remember not to go overboard with materials used.  Sometimes simpler is better.



What do you get out of this?


You will receive a version of the original design – the total finished value of the pendant will be approximately $1,000 inc GST (Retail price).


Please send sketches/images in jpeg or PDF format to [email protected]

Winner will be notified by email by April 22nd, 2011 and will be announced publicly via our website and social media.
