Our opals are natural and require special care. We work with Australian opal and Ethiopian opal, also known as Welo opal. Opals are considered to be a ‘soft’ stone, we recommend being very gentle with your opal jewellery with special attention to our care instructions, including storage.
STORAGE AND CARE
Store opal jewellery separately in a cool, dry place in the protective box provided.
Rapid changes in temperature can cause opals to crack.
Contact with water or any other liquid will cause Welo opal to lose colour.
Humid environments can cause Welo opals to lose colour.
Always remove opal jewellery before washing hands, showering, swimming, exercising or any other water-contact activity.
Take care not to drop, knock or tap opal on hard surfaces as this can cause it to crack.
Remove jewellery before you go to sleep.
Do not use any cleaning products on opal jewellery.
