Cutting Opal Earring Pairs
At Opal Art Global we specialize in cutting Queensland Boulder Opal.
In other words, all the opals in our jewellery range have been cut by us - Rick and Therese - by hand (and eye).
Cutting boulder opal pairs is highly specialized and therefore requires great expertise.
Certainly, this is something we're not short on here since we've both been cutting boulder opal since 1982.

As industry leaders in innovative opal cutting and opal jewellery design our range is, without a doubt, cutting edge.
In short, when you buy from us you are not only buying a completely unique product but you are dealing directly with the makers.
Making Opal Earrings
Above all, our jewellery is original.
Take this pair, for example.
We make the earrings in two stages.
First, we cut the opals, then we drill a very small hole in each opal and use sterling silver wire, rhodium plated ball studs with surgical steel posts to make the settings.
See how we make our opal earrings set in sterling silver here:
In sum, the earrings are wholly handmade using solid natural opals and the highest quality materials.
Are the earrings heavy?
At a weight of approximately 7 gram (each) these opal earrings set in sterling silver fall into the comfortable medium weight range.
Because opal picks up light through movement the drop style of setting is a great way to get the most out of the opals.
Finally, to protect and promote longevity, the opals have been finished with a polytop (a polymer seal).
