About Ethiopian Welo Opals

The Idea that no two gems are ever alike is what makes the creation of jewelry and the collection of gemstones so unique. This has never been more true than with Opals, Especially Ethiopian Welo Opals. The unique qualities of coloring, patterns intensity and fire, make these gems not only desirable, but incredibly valuable. No one will ever have a gem like yours because no two gems are ever alike.

Ethiopian Opal is a new variety of opal discovered in Wollo province of Ethiopia. It is highly valued for its vibrant body hues, bold color flashes and patterns. These opals are superior in terms of quality and their popularity as a collectable are rising dramatically giving them a significant investment value over traditional Opals such as those from Australia.

More On Appraisal Certificates

Appraisal Certificates are done from accredited appraisers and represent the retail insurance replacement value for an item. While many companies do appraisals (such as jewelry stores), it is important to receive an appraisal by a group that does not involve themselves in the buying or selling of Gems or jewelry pieces as to avoid any conflict of interest. We typically use AGL or GS Labs (Gemscan), accredited appraisal companies (with Global Offices) for the Jewelry industry, located in downtown Toronto. We also have a number of Certificates from EGL a global appraisal company to the gem industry whose Toronto offices have since closed down.

An appraisal will assign a monetary value to a Gem or piece of jewelry and is ultimately subjective based on the appraiser's criteria for grading and experience. For this reason, only accredited and experienced appraisers are used to evaluate stones. An appraisal is not an indication of your buying power, that depends on your ability to "wheel and deal" as well as your source of supply and ability to buy in parcel lots or in bulk.

GS allows you to check Appraisal cert numbers online.
