Emil Weis Opals – Expertise in opal, spanning generations

Opals are our great passion, our life, and our family tradition for nearly 120 years, now in the fourth generation. Firmly rooted in Kirschweiler, Germany’s "Opal Village," we are internationally positioned and have been continuously operating in the global market for decades.

Your expert partner

As the oldest opal-cutting workshop in the world, we know and appreciate all facets of the - in our eyes - most beautiful gemstone. We are familiar with sites and mines, opal prospectors and dealers; we know about all variations and varieties of opal. We can determine each stone's individual value and assess its possibilities - in exquisite pieces of jewellery, as extravagant one-offs, as collectors' items, or as investment assets.

Variety requires expertise

For us, opals symbolise the colours of life - "All Colours of Life®". It is our aim to present them in their unique diversity in an accurate and honest manner. Our range is correspondingly broad, with all types of opal and from all areas of discovery. We also offer lovingly created jewellery, with stones set in silver, platinum, and white, rose, or yellow gold - the finest jewellery, opal rings and necklaces, and exotic collector's items.

Your one-stop opal provider

Whether precise gem faceting, repairs, cutting calibrated sizes, the production of mass-produced jewellery, or the creation of the finest one-of-a-kind jewellery - everything that the modern market demands is, of course, also part of our service.
