Amazing Opal Shop
Jun. 2021
Whilst in Lightning Ridge recently, we visited Down to Earth Opals on a number of occasions. The staff were so knowledgeable and explained to us the difference between opals and what we should look for. They did not pressure us to buy, even though they knew we were interested. We felt very comfortable and consequently on our fourth visit we purchased the most beautiful carved Opal pendant. We would like to thank those staff for their patience!

This modern shop is beautifully presented with the most unusual flooring. It is a pleasure to have been there and we hope to be back.

We have completely renovated our shop during Jan-Mar 2021. A brand new experience, almost double the floorspace, new technology, an incredible first of its kind floor, with much more opal out on display including the famous "Fire and Ice" black opal carving recently featured on Outback Opal Hunters. Hope to see you again soon.

Unique Jewellery & Pleasant Relaxing Experience

One of the great Opal & Opal Jewellery Shops in Lightning Ridge. Especially when it comes to Opal with Gold Settings. Uniquely crafted Jewellery you will not find anywhere else.

Many thanks for your kind review. We take great pride in the fact that our solid opal jewellery range is Australian made with love, care and passion. The journey starts its life as top quality mined Lightning Ridge opal, cut or carved by ourselves or one of our long term trusted experts, jewellery settings are designed in house and then hand crafted by our Lightning Ridge or Brisbane based jewellers. Vicki spends hours designing an item in order to ensure the best possible orientation and play of colour, hence every piece is unique.

Rough to polished opal.
Jun. 2020 • Family
Our first trip to Lightning Ridge to try our luck specking at Grawin. My two girls were lucky enough to find some small pieces of opal on the Saturday of the June long weekend. So on Sunday we set out to hopefully have them cut and polished and we found the friendliest and most welcoming people here. Andrew cut and polished the little pieces of opal to perfection, showing them both the process and making them feel like royalty. A day they will never forget. Thank you for everything. While we waited we looked through their beautiful shop. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Many thanks for your comments about us. There has been some amazing material found on the Grawin mullock dumps in recent weeks, with visitors bringing back their "treasure" to show us. Andrew loves to cut them to bring out the best and Vicki is the expert as far as value is concerned. Hope to see you again sometime.

Enjoyed my visit to this shop, the staff were friendly and helpful and there was no trace of the "just here to rip off the tourists" feeling that I got in some of the other Opal dealers in town. I bought a nice little Opal specimen that I will always treasure.

Thank you Kirsty. We enjoy all aspects of our business and meeting new people daily. We are proud to say that with our solid opal jewellery, the opals are mined in the Lightning Ridge area, cut and polished on site or by one of our experienced long standing cutters in Australia, jewellery is designed by Vicki after the opal is carefully considered for orientation and appropriate precious metal setting, and then set by one of our two jewellers also in Australia. Appreciate your comments.

Thanks Ange - it was a pleasure to have you and Mike here with us. Despite the heat we still managed to enjoy a town tour, opal mining, first shaft lookout almost sunset (beaten by the flies) and the Grawin pub tour. Trust you have returned home safely.

Down To Earth Opals staff are so very helpful, knowledgeable and genuine. They were completely respectful of our small budget and still spent time with us to find the perfect opal. So glad we chose this shop when in the Ridge.

great stopping place
May 2019 • Friends
we called i to see some opals at various places before we arrived at this place. The lady in attendance was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to explain all about opals as well as the stock she had in the shop. It was all about telling us about the products and she did not try and force you to buy which made you comfortable in your choice of what you bought
