When you buy jewellery, you want to shop with someone who has an international reputation for providing exceptional opals and pearls at very affordable prices. You want someone who can provide high calibre stock at low prices, someone who buys in bulk, cuts and polishes from rough gem material, and sets opals at their own workshop. Their workshop is not a shop front, therefore the overheads are a fraction of the cost of running a shop front retail store. You will feel one hundred percent safe in the knowledge that you are making an informed decision on an investment that will bring lifetime of joy for you and your loved ones. Come and enjoy one of the largest opal ranges in the Southern hemisphere and learn about the hidden secrets of opals.
Australia produces 97% of the entire world’s opal and is our national gemstone. The black opal is the rarest and most valuable of its kind, selling at prices that rival the best diamonds, which by the way come in as only the 35th most valuable gemstone compared to black opal at the seventh most valuable. The very best black opal must have a rich, black background, while dark opal has base colours down through all shades of grey. Found in Lightning Ridge in north-western New South Wales, black opals are natural, solid precious gems that defract or bounce back scattered white light, giving out brilliant rainbows of spectral colours. This vibrant “play of colour” and the stone’s rareness give reason for are the factors for black opal’s high value.

When I decided to buy an opal for my mother as a souvenir from my Australia journey, at first I had no idea where to begin. I thought Paddys markets would be a good and cheap opportunity to find a nice stone, but that was very disappointing. Although, the stand where they've been sold seemed serious, I didn't have a good experience, since the staff wasn't really friendly and not helpful at all. As I had no idea of Opal prices and I didn't want to rush, I did some research online to find out more about opals (what makes them valuable etc) to avoid getting scammed and I also found the Australian Opal Cutters Factory and 2 other sellers.
When I went to the building of the Australian Opal Cutters Factory and upstairs, I didn't know exactly what to think, it didn't seem too reliable from the beginning - it took me a while that these security doors are there because of the valuable stones and pearls. Anyway, they allocated me a sales person (unfortunately, I can't remember her name) who was exceptionally friendly and very, very helpful! She explained me in great detail everything I wanted to know and looked with me through various catalogues to find the perfect opal for my mother. We've been chatting a lot out of which we could make a beautiful pendant for a necklace and how this one could look like (I will do it in Austria since I leave tomorrow) etc.
After all, I didn't only have a great shopping experience, they also had a 50% off sale and I got pear earrings as a little present. I can 100% recommend this shop to anybody!! I was so lucky to find it!
