"I was very impressed with the service, the workmanship, the enthusiasm from both Coby and Massimo, and ecstatic about the price we ended up paying for a big, beautiful diamond ring"
"In December 2005 my fiancé and I were looking for an engagement ring. We had a look around at several jewellers and prices some diamonds. With our budget, we weren’t going to be able to get much of our money. We then discovered Australian Opal Cutters and found they sold diamond at half the retail price. We were able to design the ring ourselves. I had seen a ring really I liked and Coby the salesperson, and Massimo the jeweller, both made the effort to leave their shop and go to the other end of town to look at the ring I liked and to see the design. Massimo was then able to copy the ring and made it for me just in time for Christmas, even though he had a very busy schedule. I was very impressed with the service, the workmanship, the enthusiasm from both Coby and Massimo, and ecstatic about the price we ended up paying for a big, beautiful diamond ring. I couldn’t have been happier with my experience and will always love my engagement ring." Ms. Ferguson
"What a great and relaxing way to buy jewelry"

Mr. Kish - USA
"I recommend you highly and hope to see you in the future"
"We would like to thank you and the staff for your cooperation and knowledge in helping us select our jewelry pieces. My husband and I shopped around Australia before coming to your studio workshop and we were pleasantly surprised at how much money we saved by making our purchases at Australian Opal Cutters. I recommend you highly and hope to see you in the future. Ms. Lodzinski - USA

THANK YOU FOR HELPING THE BABIES
I know it’s been four month now since we held the Inaugural Watoto Charity Ball at the Shangrila Ballroom in Sydney but I, along with the team want to take one more opportunity to sincerely thank you and the team at Opal Cutters Australia for the difference you made and to give a final update on the funds raised.
We were delighted with the evening and trust your table had a great night! The line up of entertainment was terrific – Australian Girls Choir, Dancing with the Stars, 9 still great even without Toby!), Grace Knight and the sensational Marina Prior. The Watoto Children’s Choir were amazing and a real highlight – the night could only be described a magical!
We have now given the Charity a cheque for $34.000 and are waiting on a further $ 4.000 to close which will build two houses impacting 18 lives that without your help, had no hope for the future. Two widowed mum with their 16 children now have a roof over their heads have a family for life, will be educated and stand to be the future leaders of Uganda! You made a powerful difference.
Marilyn & Gary Skinner, founders of Watoto Child Care Ministries in Uganda along with the Australian Managing Director Mark Bradshaw and his team would also like to say – a heartfelt HUGE thank you for making such a positive impact and for helping babies in Uganda.
We are starting to develop next year’s Watoto Charity Ball and would love you to be involved again next year! There will be an opportunity to participate in the event as key sponsors.
The committee are looking to make plans to visit Uganda in the next year and participate in building the houses the ball has funded! We look forward to sharing the “real” difference you made as we prepare for next year’s event! Hop this inspires you to participate again in 2007.

The dark body color often makes the fire of black opal more obvious. ... It was mined at Lightning Ridge, Australia, the "Black Opal Capital of the World".
Boulder Opal is a unique and beautiful opal found in Queensland, Australia. It is easily identifiable because it is a mixture of ironstone and opal either in a matrix or layered. Every stone is unique and they are arguably the most affordable opal available.
