Doublets and Triplets
Select a colour that appeals to you. Red on Black is the most valuable, but there are numerous other colour combinations from which to choose: Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, just to name a few. It is the wide variety of colour and pattern that makes the Opal so unique and valuable.
Always make sure you purchase a solid Opal. Doublets and triplets only have a thin veneer of Opal and are often a tourist trap. Although at times attractive in appearance, doublets and triplets have no investment value. As a matter of policy, in order to protect our clients, Cosmopolitan Jewellers does not stock Opal doublets or triplets.
You can usually pick a triplet by its “glassy” look which is caused by the quartz dome magnifying the Opal veneer.
