We are regularly looking at the state of the market and comparing the prices of Opal retailers. For example, an item we sold for about $700, a competitor piece was half the carat weight and almost twice the price at $1,250. We have found that in Sydney you can pay up to 4 times more for similar items to ours! In the Opal Industry, there can be up to 7 “middle-men” who each take a commission when they on-sell an Opal. The Opal “miner” sells to the “cutter” who sells to the “runner” who sells to the “wholesaler” who sells to the “manufacturer” who sells to the “supplier” who sells to the “jeweller” who sells to you! At each stage, a profit margin is added. We buy directly from the mines so we are able to pass these Savings on to you!
We would love to become your personal family jeweller and trusted Opal supplier. At Australian Opal Cutters, we understand that a piece of jewellery is an incredibly personal purchase, and we want to match you with your perfect Opal. We are available at any time to provide you with excellent Service, advice and guidance, no matter which stage of the process you are at. Our service guarantee is an international lifetime warranty that is carefully defined here on the website to keep you safe! Because we are essentially a family business, care and personal service is extremely important. So whether you are from USA, USSR or the UK we will be able to repair, re-model or renew your designs guaranteed for life under your international lifetime warranty policy.
