New arrival!!

Christmas is coming soon!!
Have you already decided a X'mas gift to your loved one?

It would be a great idea for you to celebrate X'mas with an opal gift :)
Most of opals we have are one and only. They have unipue characters in a modern design so they would be "everyday jewellery".
This is one of our new item, Solid Australian Boulder Opal Silver Pendant $660.

Beautiful blue and green on a natural ironstone.

It has a very simple design, however, will show its facination so well :)

Visit our website to see more opals!!!

Our X'mas tree :)

Good morning! How was the weekend?

On Sunday I was very busy putting up the the X'mas tree in our store :)
It took me forever to put everything together but at the end, it turns out very beautifully!

Come and see our beautiful X'mas tree when you are in Surfers Paradise.

Have a good day!!

SEE WHAT I MEAN...   ???!!!??!!!!

Opal miners are working really hard, digging all this mud & soil just to get LUCKY... and the rality is not as what you've described!!

Many have dreamt of getting a "BIG HIT", earn a steady income by finding few quality opals or become a "MILLIONAIRE" instantly or just wanted to enjoy their new lifestyle in the desert, away from the crowd, believing it would be a good change....

Well, truly it's not like what you'd expect at all.
Not many are finding enough 'quality opal' and not many are actually enjoying their lifestyle in a remote area.... It's extremely hot and dry in Summer time, and you just need to keep digging lots of soil everyday (and believe me, it's a hard work!!).

There is no "Theme Parks", no "Fancy Restaurants" or anything like that so, you will have to wake up early, do the digging all day and go to the BUP for liquids and light snack, and just go to bed early or get into the cutting if you've found few opals on the day....
Life is so simple at Lightning Ridge, but can be hard if you're seriously looking to get LUCKY !!!!! So, wanna try ???!!

WHAT AN ART ....  

This "Black Opal Loose" is not just beautiful, but EXTRORDINARY
as it has a potch line (Non colored area) showing on the surface, so obvious it has became some kind of  an artform or a kind of pattern.

I see this piece as the "STAINED GLASS" or an image of "CATHIEDRAL" (should I say.... ) rather than opal loose.

How you'll see this beauty, it's all up to an individual....
Just remember, that quality Australian opal don't come easily and they are super unique everytime you find one!!

If you have fell in love with "THE ONE" then it's always better to get than to regret, and this is the best advice I can give to any opal admire.   Hahahah!!

Can't tell you much...

On the other day, I was on the beach  in Surfers Paradise with Tomomi and we saw a boat racing!!

We were there to have "photo shooting" for our new project...I was a cameraman and Tomomi was a model :)

I really want to tell you what is our "new project", but it is still in secret...

The only thing I can say is "It would surprise you and amaze you!!!"

Please wait for it until the right time would come...

See you soon xoxo

Gold Coast is getting warmer & happier as the season changes to SUMMER !!

Lots of tourists from all over the place (National and International) are out at the beach, looking for new friends, searching for girls with bikinis, having sun bath and ofcourse just enjoy swimming.....

A crystal clear water and beautiful blue & green ocean always reminds me of this opal somehow.

We are having another "GORGEOUS DAY" in Surfers Paradise !!!

It's " 11. 11. 11. " today !!!!!!

What a wonderful day today !!!!!!

Lots of people out there is cheering and celebrating a day like this.... but for what ???!    (^^,)

Well, I guess they are all celebrating a special numbered date like this for absolutely " NOTHING "......

You don't need to have reasons to make yourself happy sometimes... You just need to stay POSITIVE and go with a NATURAL FLOW, and I believe today can be a little special than yesterday, because today's number of the date is nice and even...     so here's how I am expressing my feeling of today!!

A flower from my garden (showing here..) relates to the color I see in this BLACK OPAL.

It's just reflects as "JOY & SUN LIGHT"....

Simple rules!!

My boss opened Gemstory 8 years ago.

Since then, we keep very simple rules.

No.1 Keep our showroom clean & tidy always!
        (No finger print on windows and opals. Display has to be replaced and straightened after customer left.)

No.2 Smile. NO matter how we feel, SMILE!

No.3 Customer is always number one priority!

No.4 Help people as much as possible. Even though they don't purchase anything.

As a result,  my boss is still running his business while many opal shops have closed in the last 10 years...

I think our rules are very basic, but the most important things to do.
Moreover, I believe that those rules would be an essential part of relationships among family, a partner and friends!!

Have a lovely night!
