NEw Discovered Ethiopian Welo Opal Jewelry

The Moriarty family has been in the jewelry business for over 40 years now. Steve Moriarty has been traveling the world in search of rare gemstones unlike anything you have ever seen before. During his last trip to Tanzania, he went to the mines of Ethiopia to purchase Welo Opal rough to bring back to the states. It was some of the most amazing opal he has ever seen in his 40 years in the jewelry business. All the opal on our website was custom cut by Steve Moriarty and brought back directly from Africa. If you thought Australian Opal was the gold standard, wait until you see some of the Ethiopian Opal gemstones available from us. Not only can you purchase jewelry including rings, pendants and earrings, but you can also purchase loose gemstones. And as always, if you have any questions about the gemstones or jewelry on our website, please don't hesitate to contact us.
