Black Opal Opulence

The magical, fiery birthstone for October is opal and we’re thrilled to present some of our finest black opals to date. Few things are as remarkable as the highly prized Australian black opal. The Lightning Ridge area of New South Wales produces a very finite supply of this phenomenal stone. Enjoy the wondrous play-of-color this October from Omi Gems!

An Atomic Concept for the 8th Design in the 2015 MJSA Online Design Challenge

Marilyn Robb from Myerson’s Limited in Toronto, Canada approached the 2015 MJSA Online Design Challenge “A Little Piece of Home” with a design integral to the setting of the center stone, a purple sapphire cushion provided by Omi Gems.

As a design concept, Marilyn focused on the fictional client’s love of science, deciding on an atomic pendant design with the purple sapphire serving as the atom’s nucleus.

Read more about Marilyn’s process and see additional angles of the pendant on the MJSA Design Challenge page.
