  • Opal Minded is truly the BEST when it comes to opal jewelry. If you are looking for jewelry that is one-of-a-kind, you can stop looking! Save time and energy and just go to Opal Minded. From the first time we visited Sydney in 2017, to our most recent purchase one week ago, we have NEVER been disappointed. We have purchased two necklaces, a bracelet, and had a bespoke ring made. Each time my wife’s and my expectations are surpassed by the Renata and the Opal Minded Team. The team are easy to work with and are always kind and quick to help. And when we had our bespoke ring made last year, COVID restrictions made operations more difficult for Renata and her team. But even under challenging circumstances, they were able to design and deliver a spectacular ring for our anniversary! My wife likes the ring so much that she now wears it instead of her wedding rings! (It is that AMAZING!) Because of all of these phenomenal experiences, we only purchase from this store. I truly hope that you take the time to check out Opal Minded, you will not be disappointed!
  • 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.
  • Opal Minded is the best...they create exquisite jewelry and their team is the absolutely wonderful. My husband and I have purchased several items (including my engagement ring!) from Opal Minded since first visiting in 2013. No matter what our budget was, we always felt welcomed and the team was wonderful in presenting us with beautiful options. Most recently Fiona helped me choose an opal ring from afar. She was so kind and responsive in answering my questions. International shipping was fast and it was just as lovely in person as in the photos! My husband also purchased a gorgeous pendant and earring set from afar for our anniversary last year and I wear them all the time!
  • 3 years ago during a business trip to Sydney, I stopped into Opal Minded, left and went back and purchased a stunning pendant for my wife. Recently, my daughter wore the pendant on her wedding day and I decided to contact Opal minded to see if they had earrings that were a close match to the pendant. They came up with a pair that I think is as close a match as anyone could hope for. Their service has been impeccable and the opals are top quality. Very highly recommended!!
  • We were visiting from Philadelphia and read that Opal Minded is the best place to purchase quality opal pieces that are mined sustainably. We are so glad we did, because we had a fantastic experience with Christian from start to finish. He was been incredibly patient with us throughout the entire visit, he took time to show us dozens of earrings and pendants, and helped us find perfect, one-of-a-kind pieces for those who are most cherished to us and all within our budget. This personalized experience is why we are thrilled that we shopped with Opal Minded instead of another generic opal purveyor. They are truly the best in terms of beautiful inventory, sustainable practices, customer service, and overall experience. Don’t waste time or money elsewhere - please visit Opal Minded.
