Ron Brown Jewellers

Come into Ron Brown Jewellers and make your jewellery dreams a reality

Back story

Ron Brown Jewellers has over 60 years proven history of providing quality custom design jewellery and professional service to their customers. Originally established in 1949, owners Diana and Stephen Brown (Ron’s son) have developed it into a modern, independent retail business where service and quality are guaranteed.

An experienced and knowledgeable team will assist customers with all their jewellery needs by offering an extensive range of high quality, stunning jewellery including custom designed pieces.

The custom design jewellery experience

Jeweller, Stephen Brown (40 years’ experience) and Carol Millar (15 years’ experience) guide customers in the design of a custom made piece of jewellery.

Stephen Brown is a qualified, manufacturing jeweller with many years’ experience designing and hand crafting quality, exquisite jewellery.

“I enjoy creating individual pieces for our customers to wear.” He has made extensive large pieces of up to 3 carats and enjoys the process of working one on one with customers to produce the jewellery piece of their dreams.

Designs are hand drawn or options produced using the latest “state of the art” Countersketch computer programme combining 2d digital goldsmith software and technology from 3d matrix CAD software. Customers can visualise the finished model from any angle, and then staff modify and enhance the model after listening to customer feedback. A beautiful picture of the piece is then viewed on a virtual hand, allowing complete satisfaction and assurance of the final product before the manufacturing process has even begun.

Remodelling and restoration

Customers with a piece of jewellery that is not worn often or at all, or perhaps a family heirloom with sentimental value that is too worn to wear, can have their piece remodelled at Ron Brown Jewellers. An original design can be preserved, given a modern look or transformed from one piece to something new again.

Ron Brown Jewellers is a member of Nationwide Jewellers, Australasia’s largest jewellery group and has been awarded the Nationwide Jeweller’s Member of the Year award.
