“Thank you Vicki for your patience as I was trying to choose my perfect opal ring. I don’t know how many I tried on and every ring was as beautiful as the next. As much as I loved the high end valued ring (you know which one) 😂 the one I chose is absolutely perfect 😍 Thanks also goes to Andrew for the sneaky little cut and polish of a rock my daughter found that had a little bit of colour. This shop is a must see when visiting Lightning Ridge.”

“Spur of the moment decision to attend an opal cutting demonstration last Friday afternoon turned out to be the perfect introduction to opals and Lightning Ridge. The owner, Andrew was a fantastic and very funny educator, who also went above and beyond on Sunday morning to polish a few of my daughter’s pieces that she had found noodling. Lou and all the staff were so helpful and generous, and made my daughter’s trip! We would highly recommend you make this a key destination on your Lightning Ridge itinerary. The free demonstrations and talks run from April to October on Wednesdays and Fridays only – don’t miss out!”

“What a fantastic store. Not just a jewelry store but an opal experience 🤩 Brett spent SO much time with us sharing the process of cutting, polishing and carving the stones, it was so informative. Very friendly staff, not pushy, with beautiful opals for all budgets, and even welcoming to our toddler and pup! Don’t miss checking them out when you visit Lightning Ridge.”

“We dropped into Down To Earth Opals with the full intention of buying A Lightning Ridge Opal. I didn’t realise just how fun the experience would be!!
We were greeted by the lovely Kristy, she was such a pleasure, we spent quite a bit of time looking and there was a few pieces that really caught our eye.
We actually left the shop and had a look through all of the other stores and we returned less than an hour later and purchased a few pieces.
Kristy spent so much time with us and she has such a passion for opals, it was a great experience.
We are over the moon with our pieces and can’t wait to go back to Lightning Ridge.

The shop is beautifully clean and tidy and everything is so well presented and displayed.”

Down To Earth Opals represents over 75 years of combined expertise in the opal industry, led by Vicki Bokros, affectionately known as the “Rock Boss,” her husband Andrew Kemeny, and their dedicated team. Vicki, with over 30 years of comprehensive experience, has established herself as a prominent figure in Lightning Ridge, Australia. Andrew, who initially came from the corporate world on the Gold Coast, was drawn to Vicki and her passion for opals. Falling in love not only with Vicki but also with the science of opals, Andrew transitioned into becoming an award-winning opal carver in his own right.

In 2021, Andrew’s son Brett joined the company from Brisbane, marking a proud moment for Vicki and Andrew as they pass on their skills to the younger generation. Brett has since become an accomplished opal cutter, adding to the family legacy. Alongside their skilled local team, Vicki and Andrew continue to drive innovation and excellence in the opal industry. Their dedication to quality and commitment to passing on their knowledge ensure the ongoing success and growth of Down To Earth Opals.

Subsequent to the relaunch of the new larger and refurbished store in April 2021, in addition to Andrew and Vicki, Down To Earth Opals now directly employs an incredible lineup of 5 amazing and personable team members and a number of consultants/contractors spearheading advertising, social media, jewellers and an array of other professionals.
