Seasons Greetings from Opals Down Under

Sat 19 Dec, 2009

Wow, this year has gone fast. We've seen some interesting things happen in the world of Opal this year, with the GFC threatening to slow things down (it didn't), new fields proposed to be opening (they still haven't), and a new technology developed to grade Opal on a more universal basis. A former Opal Bash winner became Australia's entrant in the Miss Universe pagent, and here in the store we helped support a local charity, The Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation, through the selling/raffling of our now famous 'Heart of Hope' Opal Pendants. Orders over the internet have almost doubled on last year, despite the higher Australian Dollar. We've made even more engagement rings for people wanting something different to diamonds, and we've sold some pretty phenomenal stones to our overseas customers. So, all in all, it's been a very busy year for us here at Opals Down Under. On behalf of the owners, management and staff here at Opals Down Under, we'd like to wish all of our clients/suppliers/browsers a very Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year.
