Queen of Gems

Queen of Gems

Revered as a symbol of hope, fidelity, and purity, opal was dubbed the Queen of Gems by the ancient Romans, and remains the ideal accompaniment to your wedding today. Subtle enough to let your dress do the talking, but unique and striking enough to make a statement.

The most unique gemstone, Opal is truly exceptional because each individual gem is adorned with a one-of-a-kind colour combination. With its rainbow of colours, as you turn and move, the Opal changes colour. Set against the soft ivory and white of wedding dresses, this is a subtle yet striking look for your big day.
