'Waru Wiru' Opal Necklace

There are a handful of gemstones that are so profound that you cannot forget them. Their beauty and rarity make them unique, so unique they will take hold of your breath, pausing you in time. This is one of those special gemstones.

A dark crystal opal of outstanding beauty. Mined in the early 1970s in the remote outback opal town of Mintabie, South Australia. Held in a safe by a private collector, she lay sleeping, waiting for her moment. This stunning opal eventually came before us and without hesitation, we added it to our collection.

Now, surrounded in 18K gold and platinum, with sparkling diamonds to keep her company, she has awoken to show us all her vibrant colours and beauty.

We call her Waru Wiru (beautiful fire), a name in the aboriginal Pitjantjatjara dialect, from the outback region of South Australia where this unique opal was given birth.

Waru Wiru is a museum-grade opal, perfectly suited as an heirloom piece to be part of your family's heritage. To own such an opal is an honour as it carries the soul and rich colours of the mystical Australian outback with it.

Can I see the jewellery in person?

At Manor Gryffin, we understand that seeing a piece of jewellery in person can make all the difference in your purchasing decision. That's why we offer our valued clients the option to personally view their desired jewels at our exquisite Gold Coast boutique. Alternatively, if you prefer, we can bring the boutique to you via our Online Concierge service - our Jewellery Experts are only a video call away.

How do I care for my opal jewellery?

When it comes to caring for your precious opal jewellery, we recommend giving it a gentle wash with warm soapy water every few months. Australian Opal, in particular, loves this cleansing routine and won't fade or discolour when washed. This practice will effectively remove any oils or dust that may have accumulated on your jewellery over time and will help your opal shine in all its resplendent glory. Remember to handle your opal jewellery with care and keep it away from extreme temperatures, chemicals, and abrasives to maintain its natural radiance for years to come.
