    Bruce Tully is an Australian jewelry designer whose family originally owned land in the rugged outback of Queensland on which vast opal gemstones were found. The heir to the pioneering mining family of the late 1800s, Tully studied jewelry design in Florence,Italy, before returning to Australia where he now heads Depazzi, the nation's top luxury brand of all indigenous products that also includes crocodile leather and South Sea pearls. As creative director of Depazzi, Tully has helped to make the fire-kissed opal the most famous gemstone Down Under and has established himself as one of the world's foremost designers of opal jewelry.
