Custom Jewellery Settings
While we do not set our jewellery on site, we work with Australian-based jewellers with extensive experience in creating outstanding opal jewellery. We are with you every step of the way, from opal choice and initial concept, through to design and completion. Custom settings take 3 to 5 weeks to complete from date of purchase of the opal (we require the opal to be paid for, in full, before we begin setting). We do not require payment for the setting until it has been completed. We quality check our opals before and after the setting process. The finished settings are checked thoroughly, and photographed for the Certificate of Authenticity. We do not replace opals and/or settings that have been damaged through negligence/lack of care.
Orders are processed in Australian dollars. For a more accurate estimation use our currency converter at the bottom of the website page, or you can use Google to convert any currency online.

In our experience, it is rare for import taxes to be imposed by your home country. However, it is still possible that customers may be liable to pay import taxes imposed by their government upon arrival of their goods. This differs from country to country and we have no control over which taxes may be charged. Customers should research their country’s import tax policies prior to making a purchase.
