Australian Opal Jewelry

Updated on December 4, 2012

Australian opal jewelry is made from some of the finest and rarest opals to be found on the planet. Australian miners face some of the harshest climates in the world to mine these precious gemstones from the bowels of the Earth where they have lain undisturbed since forming in the fiery swirling mass of pre-historic Earth before she cooled enough to allow the first life to exist.

Australian opal jewelry includes rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and necklaces made with the most beautiful opals, including the extremely rare black opal which is mined in Lightening Ridge, New South Wales, Australia.

Also from Australia comes the blue opal, the white opal and the fire opal.

Finding a matching set of Australian opal earrings is almost impossible, because no two opals are the same. each is unique in both color and spread of color.

Australian opals are often sold loose for you to set in your own jewelry. This way you can pick the stones you want and choose the most fiery or the most colorful ones for yourself.

White opals are very are but not as rare as black opals. I prefer either black or colored opals myself, like the blues and the greens you occasionally see already set in jewelry.

Not all Australian opal jewelry is wildly expensive, and as you can see some of the pieces below are quite affordable.

All grades of opals are mined in Australia, from the most beautiful down to ones that could just be colored stones.

Take good care of your Australian opals and never clean them with anything abrasive. Simple soap and water will suffice.
