Made By Charlie - Truly Madly Deeply Ring
A once of piece by Charlie.
'When I started making jewellery, my Grandfather gave me a jar of Opal rock. The jar had been passed down from my Great-grandparents, they bought them from a miner when they went on a road trip to Cooberpedy in the 1920's. No one in my family ever knew what to do with them so they sat for a long time unused. I remember them being on the mantle piece at my Grandparents house and playing with them in the light as a kid and seeing all the colours shoot through the rocks. After a lot of searching I found a local opal cutter on the Mornington Peninsula and he was able to hand cut them for me in exchange for making his daughter's Jewellery. This is one of the 20 from that Jar that has been in my Family for 100 years, so it's pretty exciting to start making some pieces with them! I'd like to call it 'Truly, madly, deeply'.

Please do not drop your opal jewellery on hard surfaces as your opal could chip or break. A good rule of thumb is to put your opal jewellery on last.
Please use only warm soapy water to clean your jewellery. A metal specific polishing cloth, or specialised jewellery cleaner can also be used to rejuvenate your piece. Some of our jewellery pieces are unpolished and can change colour over time (especially if left unworn). This is not a manufacturing fault, just the manner of the material.
