Our Royal Connection
Australian Opal Cutters are proud supporters of the Royal Family, to celebrate the most recent Royal visit, and in particular the first visit of the Duchess of Cambridge and baby Prince George, the Australian Monarchist League in conjunction with Australian Opal Cutters, are presenting to our Royal visitors, one half of a Boulder Opal pair as can be seen from the picture alongside.
Mr Blaiklock, the chairman of Australian Opal Cutters, is gifting the Boulder Opal for this purpose.
When showing the gift at a recent Australian Monarchist League Luncheon, Mr Blaiklock said: “The two halves that complete this gem pair of opals not only represent Australia's national gemstone and the official NSW State Emblem but also reflect our shared Crown and history. Although they will be separated geographically with this half in Kensington Palace and the other in Australia, they will continue to symbolise our unity of purpose under constitutional monarchy and through the partnership of the Commonwealth (of Nations).”
