Affordable Australian opal jewellery is the perfect accessory to add a touch of glamour and sophistication to any outfit - and each piece is completely unique. And cheap opal jewellery from Black Star Opal does not mean compromising on quality! When looking for opal jewelry that won't cost the earth, you have several gemstone options: triplet opals, doublet opals and solid Australian crystal and white opals.


Australian opals are highly prized due to their uniqueness, rarity and beauty, but it's not impossible to find opal jewellery that best suits your budget. Ranging from very expensive to very affordable, it's absolutely possible to find an opal within your price range.

Triplet opals are a composite stone, made from three layers. The top layer features a clear quartz or a glass dome; the middle layer is a slice of crystal opal; and the bottom layer is made of potch, ironstone or black plastic. Opal triplets are made in a way that brings out best of both worlds - they resemble a Lightning Ridge black opal and have brilliant colour play, but are very affordable. 

Doublets opals also offer a similar look as Lightning Ridge opal but consist of two layers – a beautiful crystal opal slice glued to a backing material, usually potch or ironstone. Doublets opals are generally more expensive than triplet opals and but can still be a great way to get the look of opal without breaking the bank.

Solid crystal opals feature often in our affordable opal jewellery ranges. These types of opals feature translucent, light body tones and resemble rock crystal or glass with bright flashes of vivid colour. Solid white opals have a light or milky body tone and usually feature a softer, more pastel range of colours.


When looking for cheap opals, it’s important to do some research before making a purchase. Be sure to ask questions about origin, if they are treated or even if they are a natural stone. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is! The most important thing is to make sure that you buy your Australian opal jewellery from a reputable source to ensure that you only get good quality opals for your money. 

As buying Australian opals and opal jewellery online becomes increasingly popular, the choice can seem endless, and there are websites and sellers you need to look out for.
