Important Note about Chains
All our chains are 24ct gold plated or silver plated display chains only unless otherwise noted.

Ring Sizes
Currently we do not have the facility to list ring sizes in the product description fields. Please specify the required ring size in the comments section of the order form when ordering. Gold rings will be sized at no charge but silver rings will incur a small surcharge.

Our Photos
Please note that our photos are NOT enhanced to make the opal look better than it really is. In fact the opposite is usually the case as the photo can only capture the opal from one angle and opal only flashes its colours when moved around.

All Goods shipped outside Australia are TAX EXEMPT (ie exempt from our local GST of 10%). Initial pricing shown is Inclusive of Tax for local customers.
Please click the "More Info" link for each product to see the tax exempt or Tax Free Price and a larger picture.

Currency and Exchange Rates
Please note that all prices on this site are in Australian Dollars.

For conversion into any other currency please click on our Currency Calculator at the bottom of the page (ie the green banknote).

Returns Policy
We understand that there is only so much you can learn about a product from looking at it on a computer screen and that when received it may not be the same as expected. Therefore you can return any purchase within 30 days for a full refund, no questions asked (excluding shipping and insurance costs). We only require that the product be returned in original condition and packaging.

Payment Method
We have made payment as easy and convenient as you could want it. There are several different methods to pay for your order:

Use your credit card online
By far the most convenient method of payment, we will accept Visa, Diners Club, MasterCard, American Express and Australian Bankcard through our easy to use and secure payment system. Our secure server uses 128 bit SSL encryption with a shared Thawte Certificate compliments of INETstore and our web hosting service.

Please note that all charges will be made in Australian dollars and that the invoiced amount will be converted to your home currency at the prevailing exchange rate by your card provider at the time the charges are posted to your account.

Phone or Fax
If you would prefer to complete your purchase offline, we are more than ready to help you. Please print out your order, fill in the payment details and simply fax or mail to us via snail mail.
