The beautiful Opal is the official gemstone of Australia which produces 95% of the world’s supply of this precious gem. But did you know they are also mined in Cornwall, UK?

It is the birthstone for October and is said to represent truth, hope and purity. Although we are more familiar with the milky, opaque stone, what distinguishes the opal above all other gemstones is its ability to reflect a rainbow of colours all at the same time. A red opal is the most rare and therefore most expensive whereas blue and green are more common and more affordable.

We have a stunning selection of opal pendants, cluster and dress rings, and earrings set in gold or silver for you to choose from either online or more in store in Broadstone, Poole.
