Excitement building ahead of Australian Opal Exhibition

Anticipation is building for the Australian Opal Exhibition which will soon celebrate 20 years of successful trade with a two-day show in Queensland.

The fair is scheduled for 2-3 August in Southport, bringing the country’s leading opal miners and wholesalers together with retailers. 

“The Australian opal industry loves to get together and it was very exciting to see old friends and colleagues. There were also quite a few new buyers present who were warmly welcomed into the opal family.”
Janice Evert, Australian Opal Exhibition

Australian Opal Exhibition president Janice Evert said the success of the past year’s event led to organisers pursuing a new venue for 2023.

“The Australian Opal Exhibition is building on its very successful 2022 exhibition. It was the first one since the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdowns, and the buzz was palpable,” she told Jeweller.

She added: “We hope to see everyone again at our new venue to celebrate 20 years”.

Australia is responsible for approximately 95 per cent of the world’s supply of gemstone quality opals used in fine jewellery. 

The majority of Australia’s opals are found in NSW, Queensland and South Australia and come in a variety of types, including white, crystal and boulder. Black opals, the rarest, were reportedly particularly popular with buyers at Jewellery and Gem World in Singapore in September.
