I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.

I would best describe the Australian Arts and Gems Gallery as jewellery store, with some Aboriginal art and products also for sale.
The jewellery includes a large selection of handmade silver pieces by Australian designers, using stones like hematite, garnet, carnelian, coral, turquoise and onyx, as well as opals and pearls. All of these have been sourced from Australia and are accompanied by a certificate with purchase.
They donâ€™t give you a certificate and I think that the cheaper opals look funny like they are artificial and not even triplets, hence my concerns. What matters is if you like a certain piece of jewellery go for it, but leaves you with a doubt if this is what they claim it is.
