History of Opals

Blog thumbnail ,

From a European perspective, Opals were first discovered in Australia at around 1869 in Listowel Downs, Queensland. We say ‘around’ because that is when it was first…

Vintage Opals

Are you indecisive? Me too. When it comes to things that aren’t necessarily considered to be a ‘necessity’, it can be so hard to choose the right item. It’s even harder when you want to set a budget. Opals are increasingly becoming more and more popular for the value it has as an investment. With…
