Don is a certified gemmologist and jewellery maker who works alongside a small team of skilled jewellers, while Rosemary is the backbone of the business – meeting clients, managing daily operations and providing creative direction for intricate and exquisite store displays… though such beautiful pieces essentially speak for themselves.

“Yes, we’ve produced jewellery for a well-known entertainer, some politicians and a high-profile Olympic swimmer. For us though, each and every client that walks through our door is important and special, so we treat everyone purchasing an engagement or wedding ring like a celebrity.”
