You could say every piece of Australian opal inlay jewelry is a one of a kind work of art because it is almost impossible to find two pieces of opal with exactly the same color and indentical pattern. Top grade Australian opal is becoming more and more difficult to obtain due to some of the established opal mining areas being nearly mined out. With a limited opal supply and increased mining costs, the price of good Australian opal has experienced a steady rise in price. Many consumers are not aware of the increasing scarcity of Australian opal or the rise in collector value of good opal jewelry.
Collectors have been adding Australian opal jewelry by The Hileman Collection to their jewelry collections for years. Since 1974, The Hileman Collection by Mark Hileman has been known for using only the finest inlay materials and superior craftsmanship. In the early 1980’s Mark began using Australian opal and soon became world renown for creating inlaid Australian opal jewelry of the highest quality.
