|For 21 continuous years we have been mining boulder opal and wholesaling and exporting Solid Opal throughout the world. We are passionate about Opals and we provide both extremely high quality Boulder Opal and commercial grade.
Our product previously only available exclusively to Wholesalers and for the Export Market, is now available to you direct. Our opals, mined in Central Queensland, are among the most beautiful and valuable stones you will ever see, and now Taranto Opal brings them direct to you.
|Why buy Opals from Taranto Opal?|
|Taranto Opal is committed to providing goods of superior craftsmanship and quality.
Our jewellery products are guaranteed to be free of original manufacturing defects and our Opals are carefully examined for defects prior to release.
If a manufacturing defect is found upon inspection by our jeweller we will have the item repaired or replaced at our discretion, free of charge provided it is returned with your receipt within 30 days of purchase. If the item cannot be repaired and due to unavailability, a replacement product cannot be provided, a full credit will be made. If the item has been resized or altered in any way by someone other than Taranto Opal, after purchase, this guarantee will no longer apply.
|If you need to make a warranty claim please contact us as soon as possible and we will evaluate your request.
We understand that there is only so much you can learn about an Opal or jewellery item 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 packaged carefully.
