Australian opal miners & traders,   today introduced an attractive new investment gem policy: A 5 year Buy-Back Guarantee on every investment opal they sell.

CEO & long-time opalminer Roy Hopkins explains it this way: “Since the year dot gem investors have got used to the idea that when they purchase an ‘investment gem’ from conventional suppliers, they are getting seriously screwed— they know that their chances of ever getting their investment back is close to zero. Whereas, our investment gem policy is simple & straightforward: every investment opal we sell carries an unequivocal 5 year Buy-Back Guarantee. Our approach to investment gems is profoundly different from other suppliers, in that if a gem is truly an investment gem, why would we not welcome it back into our collection? That is the key point:  other gem sellers blanch at the idea of buying back their so-called “investment gems”, whilst we welcome them back with open arms. We strongly believe that ‘the best business is repeat business’; & we know that gem investors truly appreciate a deal that works for both parties”. mine, trade & cut opals at Lightning Ridge; where 95% of the worlds investment opals are found. Their website outlines the investment gem offer in full detail; as well as offering a range of gems & jewellery from $200 upwards.
