We visited Opalios late in the evening on our final day of our trip. George and Stella were both extremely welcoming, kind and insightful! We talked for a long time about their families history in Coober Pedy, how the jewellery was designed and made, and about the fossilised opals they have on display. I really really enjoyed the shop, and know that I will be picking up a charm for my Pandora bracelet from these wonderful artisans!

My husband and I recently went to Coober Pedy and my husband liked the look of this opal shop so in we went. I ended up buying 3 opal pendants while I was there. There was such a nice family atmosphere there and after hearing their story I was so glad that this is the shop I decided to buy my opals from. If we are ever lucky enough to visit Coober Pedy again I will be going to Opalios to buy more opals. I highly recommend this shop.

It was recommended by several locals that this is where I could find opal and feel confident about what I was getting and the price and also support local family. I was in Coober Pedy 4 days and visited their "Oplios" shop everyday. I was never pressured into buying anything but was instead greeted with warmth and friendliness. I enjoyed my time chatting with George and Stella and did end up making a couple purchases here. Besides my purchases I also came home with many gifts they gave me. Once back in the USA, everyone compliments me on my beautiful opals. I feel I now have new friends in Coober Pedy. Thank you!

Went to a few other shops in Coober Pedy in search for an opal ring. Arrived at Opalios and was instantly welcomed by a really friendly guy. He was super helpful and pulled out all the rings for me to look through. I am super indecisive, but he helped me narrow down the search while providing a little lesson on the stones and where they are from. I found the perfect ring, and at an amazing price. Not only was he very helpful, but generous as well. He gave us a few extra souvenirs to take home for good luck. If your in Coober Pedy, Opalios is the best service and selection, and family run too!!
