Where Sydney - - Shopping Australian Opals -

OPAL MINDED is the one and only opal jewellery store in Syd­ney that op­er­ates its own mines, and the only one in the world with an ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion of award-win­ning opals from Jun­dah-opalville in Queens­land. Es­tab­lished in 1989, this lux­ury bou­tique grew out of the fa­mil­ial opal-min­ing tra­di­tion with roots in the opal fields of Coober Pedy in the 1960s.

Nowa­days, Opal Minded’s founder and di­rec­tor, John Bernard per­son­ally chap­er­ons his opals from the mo­ment they see the day­light for the first time in mil­lions of years to the mo­ment you fall in love with them in Syd­ney. John’s wife, Re­nata, to­gether with Opal Minded’s tal­ented mul­ti­lin­gual team, de­liv­ers be­spoke jewellery de­signs, which turn heads world­wide.

Opal Minded has the priv­i­lege and free­dom to present an opal of­fer­ing like no other, de­fined by the own­ers’ re­lent­less de­sire to ig­nite the pas­sion for the beauty of the Aus­tralian pre­cious gem­stone in every cus­tomer who en­ters Opal Minded bou­tique.

Opal Minded is con­ve­niently lo­cated in the his­tor­i­cal The Rocks precinct. Open seven days a week, Opal Minded de­lights in of­fer­ing such spe­cial ser­vices as by-ap­point­ment or pri­vate shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ences, at your re­quest or con­ve­nience.
