On this page you can get an idea of the amazing color that all of their designs display, but to fully appreciate the play of light and the craftsmanship that goes into every piece, you should see this collection in person.Perhaps the most wonderful part of this company and their radiant designs is how it all began. In May of 1973, a couple of college students were mining opal at the Lost Dear Hunt claim in Spencer, Idaho.
When people they knew said they loved the loose stones, but would find it easier to sell the gems if they were mounted in jewelry, these students who formed IOGC (Idaho Opal & Gem Corp.) took the feedback to heart and started selling opal in very basic jewelry settings.
The business grew and since then has expanded to become Parlé Jewelry Designs, which creates with high quality opal jewelry, opal doublets and opal inlay, and also finished jewelry in over 25 other colored gemstones. Including many nature inspired designs such a their signature wave jewelry made in blue sapphires, diamonds or blue topaz. An excellent jewelry choice for lovers of the Outer Banks.
From the dream of a few college students to a major player in the American jewelry industry, Parlé Jewelry Designs/Idaho Opal & Gem Corp. has definitely come quite far.
