Based in near Noosa in South East Queensland there is an English trained master craftsman with over 25 years learning on the benches of fine jewellers in the UK. He has designed many pieces for various commissions and has studied all aspects of manufacture from a historical as well as a modern perspective.

Restoring Antique Jewellery is a particular skill of this fine craftsman. With his training he is very capable of repairing and resetting antique pieces in the manner they were originally made thus avoiding damage to their value by using modern styles and techniques.

But not only that, He selects and cleans up fine pieces that he finds from time to time and offers them for sale. These pieces are all beautiful as well as being exquisitely made so that when a piece is bought the customer is assured he is getting exactly what he paid for. Not only that, a 7 day period of grace is allowed so if for any reason the customer is unsatisfied the item may be returned for a full refund.

Engagement rings are always a high selling item in any jewellers. And here again this fine jeweller is happy to discuss your ideas and once you have a budget he will submit unique designs for your engagement and wedding rings to suit.

On the website there is a gallery of previously made unique engagement rings that were commissioned and created for him. Note that these are not stock rings and should you want something similar to what you see then you can commission him to design along similar lines for yourself.

Handmade jewellery is another skill that is displayed. These items are unique one offs and range from rings and bracelets to cufflinks, earrings and necklaces of exquisite design. He keeps some stock of handmade items but usually makes special items to order.
