Impeccable quality, even better service !!! I’ll be back ☺️
Apr 2021 • Couples
To anyone thinking about buying jewellery from these guys, expect nothing less than professionalism, high quality jewellery, good communication and above and beyond customer service. Jason was so polite and quick to reply to any of my questions and queries, my partner and I are coming back for our wedding rings!!! They also give you a discount when you buy with them for your next piece of jewellery. 5 star service easily, thankyou for making our engagement that much more special than it already was.

Highly recommended experience buying and cutting Opal
Apr 2021
This has truly been one of the best experiences I have had so far.
The staff is incredibly passionate, friendly and generous.
The place itself had a lot of character and was easy to find.
They carry a wide assortment of unique Opal designed in beautiful Jewelry.

We got to use all their equipment and they explained us everything there was to know about the Opal process.
This is a valuable opportunity for anyone looking to learn more and buy Opal.

We'll definitely come back.
Highly recommend it!

Most incredible experience cutting opal
Apr 2021
My visit here was a truly incredible experience. First of all the shop's interior makes you feel like you are in a different world. It has an amazing vintage feel with Opals at the centre of its glory.
I had just been on a opal fossicking trip with my family. We came to Australian Opal Cutters to see if our findings were any good. We met the owners and Jason got us cutting opal straight away. He taught us every single step of cutting opals and we were able to cut our own. We had the absolute best time in this shop and it exceeded all my expectations. They are incredibly generous with their time and knowledge and I will definitely come back here. I can recommend this shop to anyone who is interested in buying or learning about opals.

The best place to buy opals and pearls in Sydney
Apr 2021 • Solo
A very interesting gem store with a customer focussed and knowledgeable staff. I would highly recommend this store to anyone that wants to buy opals and pearls. They have a very large collection of beautiful and unique pieces of loose gems as well as the ones that are already set in fine jewelry. Giovanni one of the staff there was fantastic.

Interesting trove of items & friendly staff
Mar 2021 • Solo
Visited Australian Opal Cutters by chance & pleasantly surprised by interesting nicknaks, decor and items on display, historical & characterful. Met Jason who identified & graded several opals for me & gave a brief tour of the shop & cutting back of a piece of rock to reveal the Opal. Great customer service; knowledgeable, took good interest to help the customer- a real friendly chap! Covid has affected all such venues but glad to have chanced upon this place during these unique abandoned times. Worth the visit!

Negative experience ending with fake gem.
Mar 2020 • Couples
No no no no no! Buyer beware!!!! I went to this place because of all of the great reviews... I came home and my ring I purchased started to get a bit cloudy. So I took it to a local jeweler who I trust to have it cleaned and or sealed because why would it gloss over... only to have it deemed as a FAKE!!!! They even gave me some fake certificate. So much wasted money and time in this shop. Save yourself the trouble and go to one of the real places that have gems, get it appraised immediately. You can find fake gems in every bodega no need to go up 3 floors for the same crap.

Dear Christina, We do NOT sell FAKE OPAL! Can you please contact me immediately. If you have purchased a triplet from us we GUARANTEE these for LIFE against delamination!!! This is the only explanation nd if that were to happen we would replace the item FREE OF CHARGE!!! I am concerned that you have posted this without contacting us and have not given us a chance to reply. We have also checked our records and cannot find any record of a Christina purchasing in Feb. Please contact us as soon as possible to resolve this!

Cleaning and polishing the charm
Jan 2021 • Solo
My experience was incredible.
Giovanni attended me very well, was very attentive and super helpful... Apart from the service that was great, my bracelet was clean and it was impeccable. Because I won against important people, i was afraid but the work was impeccable.
