Welcome to Black Star Opal

Australia's national gemstone - opal - has intrigued and captivated men and women for thousands of years. Ancient Greeks believed they were the tears of Zeus and gave power and limitless possibilities to their owner, while ancient Romans saw opal as a token of hope and purity. Even Queen Elizabeth II has a soft spot for the stone.

A-list celebrities have tuned into the beauty and versatility of opal, including Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Hudson, Solange Knowles and Cate Blanchett (pictured), who wore a pair of stunning opal earrings to bring her luck at the Academy Awards. 

Opal continues to grow in popularity, and here at Black Star Opal we’ve curated a world class, contemporary and affordable collection of opal products to keep you on trend.
