Genuine Opal jewelry

Véritable bijoux d'opale
Natural boulder opal pendant

bijoux d'opale véritable est souvent pas facile de trouver. L'autre jour, je navigue sur un site d'achat en ligne respectable et, parce que je me spécialise en opale réel sur le site Opalmine, the announcement ‘genuine opal jewelry’ caught my attention.

I am always interested in what my competitors are selling. It gives me an idea of what is in demand and what people like to see. Puis j'ai remarqué le prix de cette opale cristal de qualité supérieure qui avait l'air était venu directement des Coober Pedy Opalmines en Australie. click here to see some genuine crystal opals along with some boulders unset)

Unbelievably it was UNDER $50!! Bien sûr, la sonnette d'alarme ont retenti immédiatement et j'ai décidé de regarder de plus près cette « bonne affaire’ because stones like this sell for around $500.

Many people would not read the fine print, being happy to go along with the initial ‘genuine opal’ revendication, but reading further, the truth was offered for all to see. Oui, il était authentique opale, but not NATURAL genuine opal. It was a genuine LAB opal, which means that the opal was created in a laboratory by gemstone chemists.

Avertissement de bijoux d'opale véritable: There are a few types of fake opals

Pour autant que je sache, il n'y a qu'un seul faux qui peut être appelé « synthétique’ opal and that is the one created by Pierre Gilson back in the 70’s. This opal closely resembles the real thing, being based on silicon.

D'autres imitateurs de bijoux d'opale véritable

are based on both glass and plastic. Slocum stone is made from glass. Opalite from plastic. Both types are often called ‘opal Essence’ My investigations indicate that there is a huge amount of fake opal being sold on auction and other online jewelry sites that look for the world like the real thing at bargain prices. This article is not to undermine the synthetic stone industry because it has its place in the world of jewelry along with synthetic sapphires, rubies and other gemstones.

If you finances are limited, these products create a helpful niche in the jewelry industry, the same way that plastic shoes and flowers fill a need in the world of footwear and fashion. The reason for this article is to alert buyers that these fakes are on offer and they should be purchased with a proper understanding of what they are rather than to pay for something that is not what you think it is.

Genuine Opal Jewelry (bijoux-orthographe britannique)

Genuine Opal Jewelry (bijoux-orthographe britannique)Genuine Opal Jewelry (bijoux-orthographe britannique): Pourquoi serait-il nécessaire de mettre le mot “authentique” devant le nom “bijoux d'opale” Aren’t all opals genuine? Quand on regarde une opale dans un bijouterie, il a certainement l'air authentique et en fait, il pourrait être mais le plus souvent, nowadays its NOT.

Et permet visage il, if it looks nice, pourquoi serait être embêté pour savoir si c'est un véritable bijou d'opale (bijoux) ou pas. Bien, nowadays the world has pretty well got used to synthetics. Synthetic clothes, synthetic wool, synthetic leather.. the list goes on and on.

Bien, i guess if you ask the ladies who own a diamond ring, whether they would be disappointed or not to find out that the diamond they have bought is a fake, the reaction would be understandably predictable.

They would be VERY annoyed. I guess its something to do with the way we feel about ourselves. its just nice to know that you own something that not only LOOKS nice but is valuable. The same applies to jewelry. Genuine opal jewelry is expected when you see something advertised as such.

For many years it was not possible to create an opal in a laboratory that looked much like the real thing but in recent years, using all sorts of chemical means including in some cases various forms of plastic, the results have been very convincing.

No longer do jewelers have to wait for the miner with his bundle of precious hardware to service their manufacturing process. Its much easier to buy chunks of material from a laboratory and far cheaper. But the result is not GENUINE opal jewelry. Its man made.

Cependant, ce site a collé aux opales authentiques à l'ancienne clivées du sol dans l'outback chaud et poussiéreux de l'Australie et soigneusement fabriquées en bijoux de toutes sortes.

Over the years these amazing pieces have got so rare that at times we wonder whether there will be a time that no more is found. Already some opal fields have just about run out but while the supply still remains genuine opal jewelry is still procurable.

Here at, vous pouvez toujours trouver des bijoux en opale AUTHENTIQUE. Some have been manufactured in such a way that they have an appearance of black or boulder opal but at a far cheaper price, by setting crystal opal in a dark background. But even thought they have been ‘assisted’ in the manufacturing process, they are still natural opals.
