H. Jenkinson , Australia
Just wanted to say thank you very much for helping with my beautiful engagement ring. I have been wearing it all the time. Everyone has commented on how unique and pretty it is and how it is "very me" (and of course they all ask where we got it from!). Thanks again."
K. Oliver , Australia
Just to let you know that the opal ring you made for my mother for the 60th wedding anniversary was a great success. Many thanks."
J. Curtis , United Kingdom
I received the opal pendant a couple of days ago. It's a delight and exactly as described on your website. Many thanks. It has been a pleasure dealing with Opals down Under."

Frequently Asked Questions

Are opals bad luck? Definitely not. Opals Down Under has been in operation since 1985, and we've found we've had nothing but GOOD luck. We hear of the Bad Luck myth, quite often, from passing customers. The most recent of myths devised, was by diamond merchants back in the 1900's jealous of the popularity and price of Australian Gem-grade opal. Opals are a beautiful gemstone, though fragile with similar consistancy to glass, they are definitely NOT bad luck. Do you mine your own opals? No. Though the owner of Opals Down Under did mine for opals back in the 60s, we choose to source raw material from the different mines in Australia and cut the stones ourselves. If you want a certain type of opal (Pattern/Colour/Grade etc), we can source it for you. We would like to have an opal engagement ring. Is this possible? Most definitely, provided you adhere to our advise as to using the right type of setting for an opal engagement ring. Opal engagement rings have increased in popularity over the last 24 months, and continue to become more and more popular. Do you do custom jewellery? We do not have an onsite jeweller, but we do work exclusively with specialist jewellers that have extensive experience with opal. Custom settings can be arranged either by a visit instore, or via email. Settings take approximately 2 to 3 weeks to complete.
