    5 star review  I have purchased two amazing Opal necklaces from Opal Minded to date. They are both unique, gorgeous and incredible pieces. The only thing better than their amazing jewelry is their customer service. I highly recommend purchasing from them! It is easy and fun!

    5 star review  I have purchased at Opal Minded over the last 5 years, multiple times. They provide excellent customer service and stand by their workmanship. I travel there from the USA and found it easy to communicate with them over email. I would highly recommend Opal Minded!

  • 5 star review  I collect minerals and am always on the lookout for related items to bring home from our trips. In Australia, Opal was on my radar. Fortunately, we happened on Opal Minded and came home with 2 pieces, a necklace for my wife and cuff links for me. These will be heirloom pieces to pass down to our children.
    The service we received was superior and just added to the value of our experience.

    5 star review  This is my favourite Opal shop in Sydney. Initially I was just browsing out of curiosity, I was not so keen on opals (in Europe you don’t see the nice ones) and was not intending to buy any. But then the lady had something special and to her contact, I fell in love with opals. After trying many different opals without getting the “that’s the one” I ended buying a small black opal ring that I wear every day (see photo) and a very beautiful (always admired when I wear it) boulder opal pendant for which the lady gave me some very nice cordons. That opal pendant is one of my most treasured pieces of jewellery. I never forgot what the lady said to me: “you do not chose an opal, the opal choses you” very true.

    5 star review  I walked in looking like a backpacker and there were 2-3 "older" couples there who appeared to be "high rollers". They gave me the same amount of attention and I even think I spent the most out of all of them - looks can be deceiving I guess. I explained to the lady that I was only interested in a stone to build my own custom piece. They had a large book with quality/pricing increasing as you worked your way towards the back. I ended up finding one I liked and they processed it as a non-taxable purchase and shipped it back to USA. I appreciated their professionalism. They definitely have great pieces, but I liked how they were able to meet my lower budget backpacker needs. At the end of the day, you need to spend a few hundred to find something that embraces the opal beauty....
