What does the future hold for Opals?

The jewellery industry is increasingly motivated by and linked to trends in the fashion industry. Fashion is all about colour and the colour schemes change seasonally. As opal is the only gemstone to contain all colours, with a play-of-colours and patterns, it is well-positioned to take advantage of this.

Opal jewellery is graceful and sophisticated. The charm of Opal jewellery is irresistible and it can add amazing splendor to the personality of the wearer. Opal earrings make best gifts to women and Opal rings are highly classy. The beauty of Opal pendants and Opal necklaces can make any neckline look sexy. Be it a formal event or a casual day out Opal jewellery including Opal bracelets, Opal rings, Opal earrings, Opal necklaces or Opal pendants can add superb elegance to the entire look of the wearer. Opal jewellery is really pretty and attractive but very few people actually know about the mystical properties of this stylish gemstone.

Two generations of Taranto family opal miners still live where the gemstone is mined, overseeing the mining and maintenance of the home of the opal – Australia’s legendary outback.
