Opal needs an ambassador...

Wed 14 Oct, 2009

After reading an article on the Diamond Guild of Australia's newest ambassador, the beautiful Jessica Marais (from TV's Packed to the Rafters, Legend of the Seeker, and Australian film Two Fists One Heart), the topic once again has been raised - why hasn't Australian Opal got themselves an ambassador for Australia's National Gemstone? Someone like current Miss Universe Australia, Rachel Finch (who has previously one the Opal Bash in North Queensland) would make for a stunning 'face of opal'. Australia does have a lot of talented, well-known female celebrities that would be perfect to promote opal. Who do you think should be the face of Australian Opal?
rhys says: I like the idea...however, the majority of opal consumers are women, hence the female angle. Still, I do like the idea about the 'rough and dusty like the country'.

Jane says: Yes... I would be a woman myself. And I never have understood why someone uses an absolutely gorgeous woman to try and sell me products. I do want to see passion for the product and I think a man that spends his life digging for opals probably has that passion.
