An exclusive invitation to our jewellery gallery

In our last newsletter we forecast the opening of our gallery – a showcase of the artistic talent and artisan skills of our workshop team.

We are delighted to announce that the gallery will open on Monday 9 December. We extend a welcome to all our loyal clients to visit in the week following (with three evening opportunities) to celebrate this important milestone.

The gallery will showcase a wondrous display of very special blue gemstones

The themes of our first exhibition revolve around the colour blue and ‘eclipse’. We featured blue gemstones in our ‘Gemmology Corner’ article in our last newsletter (click here to read the article) – the gallery will showcase a wondrous display of very special blue gemstones.

Visitors in our opening week will have the opportunity of open access to our studio workshop

A few years ago, we staged an ‘in-house’ competition to judge which staff member could design the best piece of jewellery based on the concept of an eclipse. We could never decide whose work was the best – so we resolved to manufacture each design to let others judge. Since then, Kylie and Yuki have added to the collection by contributing their own designs. Visitors in our opening week will have the opportunity of open access to our studio workshop – a chance to see how jewellery is made by hand and to talk to our talented jewellers. Naturally the pieces entered in the Australasian Jewellery Design Awards will be on show. Interestingly, Eleanor’s entry gives a sneak preview of the next theme that will be featured at our gallery – ‘Flora’.

We urge you to put aside a half hour in the week beginning Monday 9 December. Although we see your visits as an informal drop-in, if you did wish to discuss any jewellery matters during your visit, it might be wise to ring on 03 9650 3830 to give us a little notice. For those who find it difficult to fit their tour into normal work-day times, we intend to extend our opening hours to 7:00pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (11th to 13th of December).

Tourmaline jewellery

Tourmaline jewellery

Tourmaline is a boron silicate mineral which comes in a variety of colours due to the trace elements found within, and is the birthstone for October.

The most common colour of tourmaline is green, followed by pink, yellow, blue, black and brown. Tourmaline is also found in bi and tri colours, the most common is ‘watermelon’ tourmaline consisting of a green outer colour and fading to a pink hue in the centre.

The most expensive and highly prized colour is the Paraiba tourmaline

The most expensive and highly prized colour is the Paraiba tourmaline. Found in 1980 in Paraiba, Brazil, this vivid green/blue gemstone exhibits depth of colour like no other gemstone.

Other tourmaline colours

Other forms of tourmaline are found all over the worLd. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia, Burma (Myanmar), Sri Lanka (Ceylon), and the United States are all suppliers to the jewellery market, as well as some African countries like Madagascar.

It is well suited for all jewellery from rings, pendants and earrings due to it’s hardness of 7-7.5 on the Moh’s hardness scale, and is a great alternative to gemstones like peridot and varying colours of sapphire.

These tourmaline pieces were custom designed and handmade in collaboration with our lovely clients.

Fancy a piece of tourmaline jewellery for yourself? Call us today to schedule an appointment 03 9650 3830 or email for an available appointment info@abrecht.com.au

Diamonds – A symbol of love and romance

Diamonds – A symbol of love and romance

Diamonds – A symbol of love and romance

Diamond – A symbol of love and romance

A diamond is the classic symbol of love and romance.  A timeless gift for a special celebration or simply a declaration of your love.

Diamonds are the ideal symbol of commitment

Whether it be a gift of a pendant, earrings or an engagement ring, diamonds have been associated with love and romance for centuries.

Durable and a gemstone on the market with the best ‘sparkle’ and ‘brilliance’, diamonds are the prefect choice for a stone that lasts a lifetime. Due to it’s extreme hardness, diamonds have the potential to become heirloom jewellery to last generations.

Value of diamonds

Diamonds come in variety of colours from pink and blue to yellow, brown, black and of course colourless. Some are rarer than others with pinks and blues the most highly prized. Pink diamonds have certainly increased in value due to their limited quantity. Argyle diamond mine in Western Australia (due to close in 2020) is the largest supplier to the world. Yellows and browns are less expensive but depending on the depth of colour can achieve a premium price. Blacks are the least expensive and are quite often heat treated to enhance the colour.

Diamonds Versatility

Due to the choice of colour, size, clarity and cut, diamonds can cater for all designs. Whether you choose an engagement three stone ring, a solitaire, a pair of earrings or a pendant there is an option to reflect your style and budget.

Abrecht Bird are specialists in custom made hand crafted jewellery. All our creations are made in our onsite workshop by qualified and skilled Jewellers and designers. Let us help you create the diamond jewellery to symbolise your special occasion. Make an appointment today 03 9650 3830 or email us info@abrecht.com.au

Emerald and diamond halo ring

Emerald and diamond halo ring

Emerald is the birthstone for May and is part of the Beryl mineral family. This also includes morganite, aquamarine and heliodor (golden beryl) as well as others. The colour of emerald is due to trace elements of chromium and vanadium.

Emerald rings are a little more unique than diamond rings, and it takes a special person to wear them as they are also not quite as hard as a diamond (as diamonds are the hardest gemstone).

Custom made emerald and diamond rings

These rings were custom pieces, handmade and designed in collaboration with our lovely clients. The pear shaped emerald and diamond ring was specially created as an engagement ring. The halo emerald and diamond ring was a masterpiece by our in house designer Greg who was inspired to create something that would make people green with envy.

Wisdom from the bench

Wisdom from the bench – Eleanor Hawke

Earlier this year, one of our clients brought in a suite of jewellery that was passed down to her by her mother. She wished to remodel all the jewellery items into two special necklets she and her sister could wear and enjoy every day. The suite included a ring, pendant, bracelet and earrings. Each piece was made up of a large cushion cut garnet and surrounded by a halo of white sapphires and cubic zirconias, all in white gold settings and backed with rose gold filigree patterned plates. I thought these plates were too good to hide. Following a meeting with Peter, Greg and the client, it was decided that the delicate filigree plates would be used as a feature alongside the garnets, not hidden away as backings.

After Greg completed a quick sketch of the necklets, I began dismantling each of the items of jewellery, carefully removing the filigree sections and garnets, setting them aside for later use. As part of the new design, each garnet setting would be fitted with a hinged mechanism that would allow the necklet to be attached to a variety of chains, omegas, silk cords and neoprene, thus allowing the necklets to be dressed up or down depending on the client’s needs.

The laser welder was the preferred technique over the traditional method of soldering for constructing these necklets, as it allowed me to have perfect precision at every delicate join and removed all risks of damage to the fine filigree work when joining it to the ‘pillow’ backings.

This remodelling project really took me out of my comfort zone and pushed me to expand my usual construction methods. At times it was quite tricky and challenging, but after achieving two beautiful and unique items of jewellery, I was proud to stamp my hallmark on them. I hope our client is just as proud to wear them and hand them down through the family one day. It was a very rewarding experience to create a new family heirloom for someone that can be worn and enjoyed for many generations to come.

Hand made Australian gemstone bracelet

Creating an heirloom piece of jewellery

Creating an heirloom piece of jewellery often provides
extra challenges to the designing process. As an example,
a piece we recently created was designed around
the gemstones provided by our client. This collection
of Australian gemstones was of differing shapes, sizes
and colours.

‘…it is gratifying to be able to design these stories into pieces that, when made, can stimulate imaginations and memories.’

The natural Australian gemstones were solid Lightning Ridge
black opal, green, yellow and Inverell blue sapphires, along
with Argyle pink and yellow diamonds. All are found in
dry riverbeds and were mounted in white gold ‘rubbed in’
style settings. The outside yellow gold edges of the bracelet
represent the meandering rivers set around the ‘Red Centre’,
which is finished to represent the textured surface of the
unique red-coloured rock walls often found alongside our
waterholes and rivers. The clasp has been designed to also
articulate and move and represents a gold nugget.
The individual ‘articulated’ sections of the bracelet are all
different shapes and sizes, as are all the gemstones. After all,
no two rivers, territories or states, or even mobs or clans in
this big, wide, wonderful country of ours are identical.

This piece was designed and constructed using coloured golds
around existing gemstones. However there is another piece
being developed at the moment that is a remake using existing
components. It has been redesigned based on a recurring
theme within the existing pieces. Sections – which to date
have been hidden away at the back of the piece – are too
interesting to ignore and will be included in the new piece.

Most heirloom jewellery has a story to tell and it is gratifying
to be able to design these stories into pieces that, when
made, can stimulate imaginations and memories.

Greg’s makers mark (left) can be found in all jewellery he has designed and made.
