Since 1989, Sydney-based Opal Minded specialises in fine jewellery made exclusively with Australian opals. Managed by the Bernard family; Creative Director, Dr Renata Bernard designs one-of-a-kind opal pieces whilst founder and famed Australian Opal Hunter, John Bernard brings in the best opals from their opal mines in Queensland.
Steeped in a 70-year-old mining tradition, Opal Minded mines sustainably with a strong emphasis on a holistic ethical approach. The company works to a ‘gold standard’ of land rehabilitation that ensures they leave the land in a better state than before they started. They ensure that procuring high-quality opals for their jewellery doesn’t come at a cost to the flora and fauna, or the people involved. With sustainably mined Australian precious opals, buying guilt-free fine jewellery has never been easier.
So, if the “why” and “how” matters to you as much as the “what” of the opal world, Opal Minded is the destination for you.
