Australians Stunned by Ethiopian Opal Find

The African Gem That Upset the Jewelry World

Though Australia has been the dominant force in opals for more than 100 years, that country’s opal supremacy is being challenged by a relative newcomer. In 1994, Ethiopian opals were put on the map after a small discovery in that country’s Menz Gishe District in the northern part of the Shewa Province. After two additional discoveries in 2008 and 2013, Ethiopian opals have grown in esteem for their spectacular play-of-colour in a wide variety of body colours and patterns.

As Stauer always keeps an eye on the latest breakthroughs in gemology, we decided to craft jewelry perfectly suited for this incredible gem. Introducing our Danakil Opal Pendant and Chain, a remarkable tribute to the world’s most popular phenomenal gem. Starring 3 2/5 total carats of Ethiopian opals and sparkling white stones set in yellow gold-finished .925 sterling silver, this jewelry aims to establish Ethiopian opal as one of our greatest gemstones.

Experience the vibrant play-of-color and exquisite beauty of Ethiopian opals with the Danakil Opal Pendant and Chain. Make a statement with a piece that celebrates the gem that is redefining the opal world.
