After a short introduction of opals I've decided to buy earrings and a pendant. The sales assistant was very kind and not importunate. She was very exerted to find the fitting pieces of jewellery.

My shopping experience was superb! Not only did I walk away with beautiful timeless pieces to pass down to my daughters, I learned the different quality grades of opals as well. So amazing that Mother Nature can turn stones into gems!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
