The Opal Diamond Factory is home to the Rynes family, who creates jewellery from opals, ethically-sourced GIA certified and other precious stones.
We are proud to have been a part of thousands of stories, from love celebrations and special moments to the creation keepsakes and treasured presents. Collaborating with our customers is at the heart of what we do.
Passion and hard work are the key to our success. Whether we are cutting rough opals directly from the mine or creating elegant, custom jewellery in the design studio, we have achieved this.

If you are reading these reviews in the hopes of finding a dream piece of jewellery (especially an engagement ring) then your search is complete. Out of all the locations I went to searching for an engagement ring, this was head and shoulders above the rest. A daunting process was made not only easy but enjoyable by the lovely people at The Opal Diamond Factory. They are caring, helpful and above all know what they are talking about. The whole process was made easy by Mike; from the sizing to the style, the stone itself and overall design features, anything seemed possible. I cannot praise this man and his skill enough; the care he puts into understanding what you want the design to say and the jewellery itself is amazing. As for the jewellery itself, it is nothing short of breathtaking. His ability to frame the centerpiece stone while also making the band stand out is phenomenal. For me this involved engraving the engagement band to make it appear as though it was a branch supporting an opal. The detail he was able to achieve with this was amazing. Not only this, but the quality of the opal and the range of choices and styles available will mean that there will definitely be something that catches your eye as ‘the one’. If you are like I was and are searching the internet in the hopes of finding something special, then you have found the location you are looking for. Stop reading this and ring, email or go to the store, you will not be disappointed by the service, care or heart stopping potential that their jewellery has.
Wonderful customer service! LGBT friendly - the whole family made me feel very welcome and accepted. The engagement ring was literally perfect, and my Fiancée loves it! I designed the ring and Mike was amazing helping me through the various stages of the ring
From my very first experience at ODF as a child, going into the shop just to browse the beautiful gems with my Mum, they have been nothing short of amazing. I have since bought multiple pieces for my family, all custom designed by Mike. I have been over the moon with every single piece. Mike
