During the Australian Opal Rush of the 1890s, the outback was no place for a proper lady. It’s a good thing Isobel Robinson was anything but. Known as the Eulo Queen (named for the town), she unofficially ruled a remote town of fortune hunters, thieves and rowdy prospectors. She was a savvy businesswoman who bought opals and took the miner’s money again inside her hotels, saloons and casinos. Isobel was fearless, mysterious and flaunted her love of the Aussie gem with a thick gold belt studded with opals. Like the legendary rainbow shimmer of her favorite stone, she was truly one of a kind.
To pay proper homage to this luminous beauty, Stauer showcases milky white opals with chevrons of pavé-set lab-created DiamondAura® in 14K gold vermeil. A 2 ¾-carat opal perches on the split-band ring. The Isobel Opal Necklace showcases a ribbon pendant of gold-layered, sterling silver set with DiamondAura and surrounded by 4 carats of smooth opal ovals. The pendant dangles from an 18" gold-finished chain. A fitting tribute to an unforgettable lady.
