The Power of Compelling Jewellery. A short story:


On a cold wet rainy day, a woman arrives home after a horrible day at work; it was one of those days where things went from bad to worse.An unstoppable mind-loop of critical and depressing thoughts snowballing down a mountain faster and faster.


She stepped in through the doorway and there standing in front of her was her husband. With an odd looking and unreadable expression on his face.


Caught-up in her own bleak thinking mind, she shoots him a look that would have made the devil himself turn his head. But not him, he just stood there saying nothing, just staring at her until at last he calmly and gently said, “I can see that you’ve had a bad day, please go into the lounge-room and take a seat, I have something that I want to give you, I think you’re going to like it.”


And just like that. Instantly. Peace. Like a bolt of lightning, or the swinging doors of a bar salon — out went brooding thought in strolled curious thinking. And for the first time that day she was smiling. She sat down on the sofa wondering what it was — excited, all the trials
of the day forgotten.


In walked her husband, excitement written all over his face. He sat down next to her and said “I got this today and was going to wait until our anniversary next week to give it to you, but I think that now is the right time.” He gave her a little box , she paused before opening it, enjoying the feeling of anticipation, knowing from the size of the box it was some type of jewellery.


She opened it, and inside was the most dazzling thing she had ever seen ... It was an opal, a whirlpool of brilliant fire and colour. It was both beautiful and compelling, she particularly liked the dominate blue colour - an image of her dressed in her favorite outfit wearing this pendant popped into her mind.


She smiled even more - her special joyful smile. She savored the moment and new instantly that this wonderful memory would stay with her forever. Her husband leaned in and said "Why don't you go upstairs and try it on, I'll be up there in a minute with a glass of wine".
His eyes sparkled. As did hers!


 


The Opal Museum (next door) will increase your appreciation of opal.

Which is important because we believe that the more you appreciate something, the more special it becomes. And isn't this how you want to feel about your jewellery, to have a special feeling towards it, a deeper connection)?

 

 

If you're not able to come to Brisbane, then the next best thing is to do a...  VIRTUAL tour of the opal museum and shop    (There are SEVEN rooms in total - Can you find them all?). Click the arrows...

  

 


 

So you've meet me. Here's the staff...

 

(from left to right) Ashley, Tara, Susie & Adelaide (front).

What I look for in my staff is friendly engaging people. People who can explain the tour well and are capable of asking thoughtful questions when in the shop (to help you work out your perfect opal), and finally, they need to enjoy being with people so that they make your experience as enjoyable as it can possibly be.

 


 

So lets now talk about what you'll discover on the website (and in the shop) because not all opal jewellery is the same...


have 3 major opal miners who supply me with opal rough from either lightning ridge (home of the famous black opal), and the Queensland opal fields (it's the only place in the world where we find boulder opal). I buy often, and in large quantities and am therefore able to get the opal rough for the lowest possible price.


This opal rough I personally cut shape and polish. Once finished, I send the stones off to one of our four jewellers (each with their own jewellery making specialty). I inform them as to which direction they are to orientate the stone, the design, & what metal they should use. This makes up 73% of our jewellery. This system ensures that every single item passes the following test...

 

Features of good opal jewellery

 

 

On viewing the item for the first time the jewellery piece needs to "look right"

 

  1. It needs to have a nice balanced shape,
  2. Positioned in a way that maximises the opal colour, and finally...
  3. It needs to have at least one thing about it that makes it special!
