Opal Minded is a remarkable store to buy opals in Sydney! Even if you are not crazy about jewellery you can find pleasant souvenirs there at reasonable prices. It is the only opal store in Sydney where I felt comfortable and I made a purchase there. I bought a ring and pendant in a shape of KOALA))))) Thanks to unique atmosphere and very good and polite personnel. I say HI and thanks to Nailya a russian girl working there! We are from almost the same part of Russia!!!!!!!!

I visited this place to buy present for my girlfriend. Cathy Suryasumirat, PR and Sales Manager showed many kinds of opals and answered to my every single question kindly. I strongly recommend anyone who have plans to buy opals in Sydney to visit opal minded and see Cathy.

We visited Opal Minded on our recent trip to Sydney. To tell you the truth I was a little afraid to go in because I thought everything would be out of my price range, however, this store covers all price ranges.
Valeria Torrisi is wonderful to work with. She took the time to show me many different opals in a wide range of prices. By the time I left the store I felt like I had made a new friend and I will always remember shopping in this lovely store.
When in Sydney, this is the place to go, the opals are beautiful, the staff is outstanding, and you won't be disappointed!

I would give more than a 5 for the whole experience of shopping at Opal Minded. Cathy was tremendous and I came away with the most fabulous opal. I will be seeing my jeweller at the weekend to start the creative experience of trying to enhance perfection.
