Gorgeous Opals

Gorgeously fire-hued, with the colours of the Aurora Australis, all caught up in one beautiful stone, our new Cirque additions are sure to inspire. 

We are so pleased to show off some wonderful designs that we have been working on, in conjunction with designer Sabina Lee. These welcome additions to the Cirque collection encapsulate the wildness of the Australian outback and the beautiful stones that we are so the world renowned for.

the story behind the echunga collection

The Aboriginal Dreamtime stories, their tales of origin, have a beautiful creation myth for opals. In the Andamooka region in South Australia, the local tribes believed that their creator came down to Earth on an enormous rainbow. The creators message was one of peace on earth to all humans and to lay down the laws for the people to live by and thus instruct their way of life and rituals.

In the spot where his feet touched the ground the stones became transfixed with the colours of the rainbow. This then was how the opal creation came into being and the colours of the heavens were trapped in these stunning gems.

It's a wonderful message and a beautiful dreaming, all rolled into one stone.Our opals are sourced from Australia and are unique to Gerard McCabe. So unique, in fact, that these are exclusively one off pieces. See some of our new additions below, and be ensnared by the heart of Australia and the promise of a rainbow trapped in stone.
