All opals and jewellery come with a written certificate, guaranteeing quality, value, and craftsmanship.Come and see Andrew, Stella and George for the best value opals.

George is lovely. Our 5yo girl had, I'm sure over 30 questions for George and he answered every one. Our 2 boys aged 11 and 9 loved the shop and were made to feel very welcome with free gifts and again, all questions answered. I tried on many pieces of beautiful jewellery and we also viewed pictures of their family mine. Stella was again, lovely to our daughter and will always look on her opal tree fondly.

The lady here was fantastic with our children, she gave them both a piece of opal and a rock they could share with the kids from school. No pressure to buy anything and was great to see the work in progress.

After being ignored in two opal shops we visited Opalios. What a contrast. Upon entering Opalios we were warmly greeted by Stella and shown a lovely selection of jewelery. Stella cuts and polishes the opals. She is a gorgeous, genuine person and not at all pushy. George her son came from out back to chat. George is a jeweler and sets all the stones in gold or silver. He too was very friendly and informative. Stella's husband was out in the opal fields. Her story of their arrival to Coober Pedy is very interesting and a memorable one. Do yourself a favor and call in to see Stella and her family. You won't be disappointed.

I was interested in buying some nice but inexpensive items of jewelry as gifts for friends and family. Opalios had a great range of individually crafted pieces and I was able to buy some very nice opal and sterling silver earrings for as little as $15. George and Stella were really helpful and friendly and gave us some lovely added extras including a small bag of opal rocks that the kids enjoyed cleaning up and looking for colours.

Stella welcomed us and gave us very personalised service without any pressure. She helped us choose items on behalf of friends & relations through seeing photographs of them. We are delighted with our purchases and recommend anyone visiting Coober Pedy to visit this shop.
