About Us

Welcome to The Opal Trading Company!!

The Australian black opals mined by The Opal Trading Co. & Partners are mined in Lightning Ridge, NSW, Australia, and are coveted as some of the most sought-after opals in the world.

Opal Trading Co. have the ability to produce and supply the world’s finest and rarest opals of the highest quality, shapes, sizes & colour to an ever-increasing international customer base.

To ensure that we can continue to deliver the world’s largest online retail opal jewellery collection, Opal Trading Co. have partnered with a small number of handpicked miners situated at a number of opal mining fields across Australia, including Coober Pedy.

 

Opal Trading Co. is a full circle entity, which covers every aspect of the opal process, from staking mining claims and mine processing, to virtual sales platforms and international sales offices in Australia, Asia & North America.

Opal Trading Co. can produce, refine & supply high quality Australian opal to international retail markets without the need of any third-party distributors.

Being an end-to-end business also allows us to achieve a 100% guarantee on all our products and insure the highest of quality and consistency of opal to our national and international customers.

Our opal trading website can only succeed if we surpass your typical buying experience at a conventional jewellery store. At Opal Trading Co. it starts with a vast online selection of gemstones and jewellery that is far larger than any retail store in the world could possibly offer you.

Our Why

As you’ve probably noticed from the various videos across most of our social platforms, the founders of Opal Trading Co. are hardworking, genuine people based in Lightning Ridge and around Australia.

Over the last few years, with the help of the internet, a wave of new opal importers and dealers started popping up all over the web. On one hand this was great, because this allowed the world to access a large range of opals and opal jewellery at wholesale prices. But on the other hand, thousands of customers have been caught short, buying what they expected to be good quality opals or opal jewellery when in fact they have been left with fake synthetic look-a-likes or very poor craftsmanship. Opal Trading Co. was foundered to provide the world with a trusted, transparent and service based community. It is a hub where retailers and enthusiasts can feel safe in knowing that they can purchase the highest quality Australian opals direct from a company that actually mines for opal. A place where purchasers can be sure that they are buying opals from one of the most trusted Australian opal jewellery suppliers in the world. And a place where our collection is so vast, our customers are guaranteed to find that special piece they have been looking for. Last but not least, we would like our visitors to know that although Opal Trading Co. is a major global supplier, our team is here to help if they ever have any questions. Our contact details are on the website, and we are more than willing to answer any questions you may have.
