Polishing Dull and Abraded Opals

In this video, Tim repolishes a Mexican opal that has abraded over the years. Opals often need to be removed from the ring before polishing, in this case, the opal did not need to be removed.

With years of experience, knowledge of opals, the right equipment, and a delicate touch, Tim's re-polishing job makes this look like a new ring. (In the interest of brevity, this video cuts out many details.)

If you have an opal that needs a polish, you can drop it off at one of our shops or send it by mail. It's best to inquire by email or phone before mailing.
