About Us

Established in 1985, Fremantle Opals is a family-owned and operated business specialising in hand-crafted opal jewellery and fine unset opals sourced directly from the mines. Our store is home to an exclusive range of designs, settings and stones, including a selection of rare black opals.

Few gemstones can compete with the beauty of a quality opal. Known as Australia's national gemstone and the birthstone of October, every opal is iconic and unique; no two stones are alike.

Opals are as diverse as the people who wear them. For the perfect gift or a lasting souvenir from down under, choose a one-of-a-kind piece from Fremantle Opals.
