Have you ever wanted to know how to judge an opal’s quality?  In part two of Giulians’ opal discovery, lets take a look at the different qualities that make a great opal.

We went on a road trip! Last month, Gary, Trina, Joel and I took a day off work, and drove down to Canberra, to see Cartier’s exhibition of historical jewels on display at the National Gallery of Australia.  Established in 1847 in Paris, by Louis-François Cartier, Cartier is today an internationally recognised jewellery and watch manufacturer.

Visiting Sydney soon?  You may have already researched where to eat during your stay, but sometimes a brilliant wine list can help make the decision easier! The Annual Wine List of the Year Awards, held last month, is the Oscars for restaurant owners and sommelier’s wine lists as they learn how their carefully constructed list stack up.  2018 was the 25th year of this award.

Ever wondered what Gary gets up to on his days off?  Golf, gardening and… this! Last year Gary was tasked with making a commemorative plaque for a friend’s retirement.  Using some specimen grade ‘boulders’, Gary got on the power tools in his front yard.  His youngest son Liam, who is a keen photographer, captured some fantastic photos during the process. We hope you enjoy this gallery of images showing the transformation of a lump of
