Description

Boulder Opal is an exquisite silicon based 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. Featured here in 18ct gold this stunning pendant design echoes the distant ends of the Galaxy as a reminder that nothing is ever truly out of your reach.

A Boulder Opal has many interesting qualities which we love, these include the different 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.

The design is finished with delicate scroll work in the white section of the precious metal which gives a real creative flair. 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, I just wanted to thank you for designing such a beautiful range of jewellery. My Husband bought me your Labrynth pendant and I am more than pleased with it. Its so unique. I've never taken it off since getting it for my birthday a few weeks ago and have had numerous comments on it. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to Christmas.

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.

What an absolute pleasure meeting you and having a brief but memorable visit. Your design is exquisite, and I had the proud pleasure recently of showing it off amongst a group of inquisitive English ladies at dinner!
