Made by Us
At Opal Art Global we specialize in cutting Queensland Boulder Opal.
That is to say, all the opals in our jewelry 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 since we've both been cutting opal since 1982.
As industry leaders in innovative opal jewelry design and cutting our jewelry is, without a doubt, cutting edge.
In short, if you buy from us you are not only buying a totally unique product but you are dealing directly with the makers.
Making Boulder Opal Earrings
Above all else, our jewelry is original.
Take this pair, for example.
We make the earrings in two stages.
Firstly, we cut the opals.
In this instance, the opals have been cut into two free shape ovals.
The second stage of making the earrings is assembly.
To assemble we drill a very small hole in each opal and use sterling silver wire to attach the rhodium plated ball studs with surgical steel posts (non allergenic) to make the original design setting.
To further protect the opal and promote longevity, we finish the boulder opal gemstone pair with a polytop (a polymer seal).
The polytop finish sets our range apart.
Because opal picks up light through movement the drop style of setting is a great way to get the most out of your opal.

In sum, the earrings are wholly handmade using natural opal and the highest quality materials.
