Quality Jewellers in Canberra?

By Willoring - 24 January 2014 18

I am thinking of buying my friend a ring and would like to hear recommendations for a quality jeweller here in Canberra.

I have reasonable money to spend and am not interested in cheap, chain store stuff.

Would appreciate advice.


What’s Your opinion?

They are in Bunda St

Agree but you have to have some serious cash to fork out on a ring at Aharoni cause Eytan only deals in gold and the best gems. If you’re willing to think outside the box a little, then they do have cute necklaces made of coloured silver.

There’s a wonderful old jeweller upstairs above Green Square in Kingston.

I know this is a bit of a way out, but I went to the subcontinent fairly recently and it was astonishing how big the gulf was between the prices we pay here compared to there.

I’m not big on jewellery myself, but I worked out that if one was to spend more than, say, $4,000, it would actually work out cheaper to go over there and get something really remarkable.

If you like I can go into a bit more detail, but I can assure you that I will struggle to justify buying any jewellery (maybe exception of some pearls and opals – ‘native’ to oz) in Australia ever again.

Thank you all for your advice and suggestions.
We will start with McGlades and Diamond Girl, then follow up the others.

Depends what you want. Check out Fabled Fox….

The travel costs of going up to Sydney will be offset by how much cheaper Sydney jewellers are than Canberra.

Having said that, there is a talented old guy who’s located in Woden near the post office. Right next to the Soul Bar. I think it might be called Vangeli’s.

Emma Kidson, who is based in Wagga but has a stall at Kingston Bus Depot Markets most weekends. She works closely with you in regards to design and her stuff is awesome and well priced.

Girls are fantastic and listen

You can get top quality stuff over the net for about 1/3 less than what you’d pay in Canberra. Check out: and any of a dozen other large internet jewellers.

savalas 4:12 pm 24 Jan 14 in the Canberra Centre, Civic has a nice range of unique stuff.

If you want a ring handmade, you could also try Harry Rose in Garema Place, also in Civic:

McGlades under the impeccable skills and discerning taste of gemmologist Angie is the equal of any in the region… but don’t take my word for it, check out the number of customers they have these days.

McGlades in Canberra Centre.

Don’t do jewellery myself, but a friend who gives a cr@p about such things swears by Diamond Boutique (formerly of Canberra House, now in Lonsdale St, Braddon)
