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. The featured pendant here, Setting Sail, is reminiscent of a sail on a magnificent ship with an array of beautiful colours on display and is the perfect way to show your loved one how much they mean to you. Handmade by our goldsmiths in 18ct gold the pendant is also set with a paraiba tourmaline and diamond to complement the piece perfectly.
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.
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.
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.

Just wanted to say thank you very much for the swift processing of my rather late order of a Moon-sign pendant for my daughter's 18th birthday this weekend. The pendant is beautiful and she is delighted. The packaging was impressive and kept her guessing as to what the gift was. Best wishes to you all
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.
I came and collected my ruby wedding anniversary ring - and how incredible it is. You certainly don't disappoint do you - it is the most stunning thing I have ever possessed. It is without doubt the most beautiful ring I have ever seen and I have been wearing it ever since - so amazing and it fits perfectly with or without my wedding band - so comfortable - anyone would think it had been made for me !!! So, thank you so much, it is truly a work of art and wearing it makes me feel so very happy and contented and special. I feel so privileged to own it all.
