These genuine natural Australian quality light crystal opals mined on the opal fields (Old 7 Mile field) of Coober Pedy Australia, have been inlaid in solid 14 karat gold with a Queensland opal boulder ironstone backing (inlaid doublets) and set with solid 9 karat gold continental clips here at Star Mountain Gems Australia.
Absolutely dripping with pink/red fire closely hugged by brilliant turquoise accents, the likes of a pair like this escapes us even after decades of experience in the opal mining and jewellery business.
This quality opal is valued at $900 per carat (Around 2.5 carat opal weight in each piece) making a natural, handmade, fine gem opal earring pair like this hard to find for less than around $4’850.00 retail.
After 30 years in the opal business, we firmly believe opal can be the most beautiful gem on Earth, and we love the colourful characters and lifestyle of the outback opal fields. Here at Star Mountain Gems we are privileged to do our best to acquaint the world with the colour, light and beauty that quality Australian opal jewellery has to offer.
See the video of our outback opal hunting trip where we bought this material from local miners on the Old 7 Mile (South Pacific field) (this opal at 12:08)
