Description

Boulder Opal is an exquisite gemstone which is often found at the heart of a Catherine Best design. Each creation is designed and made entirely by hand so you can rest assured of both its uniqueness and its exceptional craftsmanship.

Taking it's inspiration from the dramatic vistas of the Australian Blue Mountains, it's country of origin, this beautiful Boulder Opal pendant is entirely handmade by our jewellers in Britain in 18ct white gold and is finished with a gorgeous diamond for that finishing touch.

A Boulder Opal has many interesting qualities which we love, these include the spectrum of colours on show and also how an opal can appear different dependant on the angle in which it’s viewed. The flashes of colour make it look incredibly lively and the undulating lines of a boulder opal make it look deeper than it is. It’s very easy to get lost in them, as our designers often do.

Our designers also enjoy seeing the matrix of the opal. This is the solid brown ironstone at the back of the stone which the thin colourful veins of the boulder opal attach onto. We find it creates added interest in the gemstone and the different depths make it more mountainous which ultimately give it more form. Sometimes the veins of the boulder opal travel into the matrix which tells a fascinating story of a gemstone which is created over millions of years.

Each opal we use is chosen by hand and is of the utmost quality so you will be pleased to know that you are purchasing a piece of art entirely wrapped in romance and luxury.

Hi there team. I just wanted to say how nice it was to meet you and to purchase such a beautiful piece of jewellery (the moonstone carved pendant). I really love it and I am sure I will be back for more.

Kay

I just wanted to say that I am absolutely delighted with the pendant that I collected yesterday. I also bought a pair of the cufflinks for my husband's birthday and my daughter had her necklace repaired, so all in all a great visit to the showroom, where we received excellent service.

Wendy

I would like to say a big thank you to Penny and all those involved in making my bespoke wedding ring on Tuesday. I cannot believe that such an exquisite piece could be made in 5 hours to such a high standard. Please pass on my gratitude to the goldsmith and I look forward to returning to The Windmill when I visit the island again.
