With origins woven into the fabric of society for thousands of years, jewellery is loved as dearly today as ever. As sentimental adornments, jewellery is often bought to commemorate a special occasion or mark a personal milestone.

Jewellery is also a creative form of self-expression, worn for beauty, status and prestige. An expertly crafted piece can transcend generations as a lasting memento.

Featuring countless combinations of precious metal and stone, a stunning piece can be worn as often or as little as desired. From rings and earrings to bracelets, necklaces, and more, jewellery can be equally representative of classical and modern design.

When it comes to purchasing that something special, everyone is deserving of jewelled perfection. Whether you are sourcing an engagement ring or a gift for someone special, you will no doubt want the best.

What makes a great jeweller?

A great jeweller applies their skill and finesse to artfully construct your dreams into reality. Here are a few attributes that we think separates the best from the rest:

  • Prestigious and principled. The best jewellers have a great reputation for being the prestigious and principled in their field. With a well-defined brand, established design studios are known for the quality and calibre of their work. Aside from a glowing reputation, their credentials extend into the broader jewellery industry. Look for affiliations with the likes of GIA, Jewellers Association of Australia, and the National Council of Jewellery Valuers.
  • True artisanship. The best jewellers offer so much more than a retail shopfront. As full-service studios, they are home to dedicated artisans with specialist skills and expertise directing the end-to-end process. From sketching and 3D visualisation to melting, forming, setting and polishing, their handcrafted masterpieces honour precision and technique honed over time.
  • Quality and originality. The best jewellers appreciate that every purchase made is an investment in quality. They strive to deliver the highest standards of craftsmanship, sourcing certified materials of superior make. Equally, many leading jewellers present their own signature style, with hero design concepts unique to their brand. This true passion for quality and originality is what often sets them apart.
  • Sustainability and ethics. Leading jewellers recognise the importance of social and environmental stewardship. In doing so, they demonstrate a commitment to sustainable practices, from procurement right through to design and manufacture. Whether this be a focus on ethical diamonds, recycled gold or lab grown gems, they do their part to ensure future generations continue to enjoy the spark jewellery can bring.
  • Exceptional experiences. Dealing with the best jewellers means nothing less than an exceptional customer experience. From the sales floor and beyond, these professionals offer an array of specialised services for their customers. From resizing, retipping and resetting to a simple clean and polish, they adhere to strict quality guidelines and are at your disposal to reshape jewellery in your desired image.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a GIA certified diamond?

A GIA certified diamonds have been graded by the Gemmological Institute of America and come with a universal certification of authenticity. Grading covers a stones carat, colour, clarity and cut, along with proportions and any notable inclusions.

What are the four C’s of jewellery?

Developing an understanding of the four C (carat, colour, clarity and cut) diamond grading system can help with finding the right diamond. While your budget may be fixed, exploring moving up or down the scale on each of the four C’s can help. For example, some buyers may wish to prioritise carat while others may opt to move down in size by 20 to 30 points and focus on colour and clarity.

How do I know if my jewellery is ethically sourced?

It really comes down to doing your own research. Let your jeweller know that responsible sourcing is important to you and avoid purchasing gems from countries with common violations. Lab grown gemstone alternatives or recycled metals may be worth exploring. Looking for those with memberships with industry organisations such as The Diamond Guild Australia may also provide some added peace of mind.

Do I need a jewellery valuation?

A jewellery valuation, or valuation certificate, provides a detailed description and indicative value of a jewellery item. Perhaps the most common reason for needing a valuation is for insurance purposes. Additional drivers include item sale, be it private, through auction, or as part of a property settlement or deceased estate. Valuation certificates can be obtained for items already owned or upon request with a new purchase from your jeweller.

Can I clean my jewellery at home?

In many cases jewellery can indeed be cleaned at home. A gentle solution of mild liquid soap and warm water is a simple and easy way to do so. A soft tipped brush may be used around stones and settings, wiped down with a soft cloth once dry. A word of warning - always check with your jeweller before attempting to clean at home. Nothing beats a professional clean and polish by your local jeweller, and some stones, settings and metals require specialist care.
