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. Featured here in our Hibiscus design is an opal weighing over 8 carats which has fascinating plays of blue colouring running through it.
Over the years we have developed close relationships with a trusted network of suppliers who spend their time in Australia seeking out the wonderful raw material which is then cut and polished over time to create the truly exceptional opals you can see in our collections.
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.
In our design work we mostly use 18ct yellow gold as it lends a warm and lively look. This is often complimented with 18ct white gold which is used to bring the maximum brilliance out of any accompanying diamonds and also lends freshness to the design.
All of our jewellery is presented in a beautiful box with Catherine Best's unique branding.
Each box is especially designed to hold your jewellery delicately so you can rest assured of its continued safety.
Each piece of jewellery comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity which can be personalised for the wearer. This guarantees the design is a Catherine Best original which gives you peace of mind that your jewellery has been created by masters of their craft.
Each piece of jewellery comes with its own polishing cloth, to ensure that it continues to retain its brilliance.
Your jewellery can be wrapped in a variety of complimentary paper so you can be confident the gift will look perfect when presented.
