Franco Jewellers - Loose Diamonds, Wedding & Engagement Rings Melbourne
(03) 9564 7753
Franco Jewellers, leading Melbourne Jeweller of Collins street, is one of those rare companies that launch exclusive collections, which consistently set the barometer for the most coveted accessories. Today, we are proud to be a jewellery retailer offering consistency, luxury, quality bespoke custom designs, and with 50 years of experience in the retail jewellery industry.
A creative passion for fashion and accessories runs in the Franco family. It began when Franco Ceresiani migrated from Italy in 1956 after completing a jewellery and watchmaking course and decided to begin his career in the world of jewellery two years later. Working in Ballarat for Thomas Jewellers, Franco planned to hit the big city of Melbourne, where he managed the shop for Simpson Jewellers before deciding to place his own mark.
Franco opened his first jewellery shop in the CBD of Melbourne, just steps away from the GPO, in 1968. The Elizabeth Street shop was the beginning of a successful family business that grew to three stores over a period of three decades. Franco Jewellers became one of the only Italian jewellers located in the CBD at the time, and as a result, built a strong and dedicated clientele. Featuring imported Jewellery and Swiss watch brands, Franco's success climbed, and the range of jewellery offered expanded.
Nine years later, Franco extended the business and opened a second store in Centrepoint, Bourke Street in 1979, with the third store opening in Melbourne Central in 1991. "In 1994, we were approached by Chadstone Shopping Centre to open a store, so we ended up with three stores right up until 2003," recalls Daniela.
Today, Franco Jewellers has two boutiques located in Collins Street, one in St Collins Lane as a flagship boutique, and the other in the Manchester Building for a private appointment style boutique, offering privacy and one on one service. "We decided to keep both boutiques as we were able to maintain quality, more high-end stock, and personalised service as there is a family member in both stores."
The collections that you can find at Franco Jewellers are solely from Italy, where Franco is the sole importer for many exclusive jewellery houses in Italy. These include household names such as Anna Maria Cammilli, Autore Pearls, among many more. Franco Jewellers also carries a range of Swiss watch brands, which include U-Boat and the newly designed innovative brand of Rec watches.
You will also be able to have one of the qualified jewellers handcraft a ring that is individually designed for each client. With everything
Flowed through from beginning to end, you will receive excellent service with a personal touch that Franco Jewellers prides themselves on.
"Our philosophy is to maintain the highest level of service together with quality at reasonable prices where we take that extra step to make sure everything is quality controlled."

One hundred forty-two years is an awfully long time to be in business. Established in 1875, Robert H. Parker & Sons is one of the oldest jewellery manufactures in Australia.
Robert H. Parker & Sons started out as one of the pioneering jewellery businesses in Australia and were one of the founding members of the Jewellers and Silversmiths Association of Australia.
A Family Business
The business was started by Robert Parker in 1875, making handcrafted jewellery from the precious gold and stones that were found in the area. Over time Robert introduced his sons to the business and slowly taught them the craft. Eventually, the sons took over the responsibility of running a business and carried on the reputation of creating high-quality custom jewellery.
After 58 years of running as a family business, it eventually got to the stage where the two sons were looking to retire. In 1964 an employee James Durkin who had worked there for 20 years since being an apprentice, took over the business and ran it for a further 20 years.
History then repeated itself when in 1984, James Durkin handed the business over to another loyal and long-serving employee and past apprentice, Andrew Walsh.
Andrew has been running the business with the same trusted values and high standards of workmanship ever since.
Andrew now has close to 50 years of experience & has been running Parkers for 35 years. He is a qualified manufacturing jeweller, registered valuer & trained gemmologist with a Diploma in Diamond Technology and extensive design credentials.
You celebrate your love in little ways each day. Now celebrate it in a big way. Robert H Parker & Sons will take the time to listen to your ideas and translate them into beauty.

We give you a lifetime guarantee of cleaning and polishing, not to mention our advice the next time you're looking for something special.
Robert H Parker & Sons are experienced in helping clients through their wedding journey no matter what the dream or budget.

Our journey began with the design, manufacture and supply of some 3,500 jewellery retail outlets throughout Australia and New Zealand. We spent 28 years supplying all the well-known jewellery chains and groups, as well as a large selection of independent retailers.
The name Kalfin became synonymous with excellence, as we dedicated our existence to the design and creation of innovative jewellery with superior quality and service. Our natural instinct to evolve and better serve the jewellery industry and consumers became evident over more than two decades.
The need to impact design and outdated methods became the passion at the forefront of our philosophy.

We have embraced new innovations and the latest technology, creating a luxurious environment for the comfort of our clients and empowering them with the information to make an informed and personal jewellery decision.
Our boutique, established on Level 5, was the first of its kind and still stands as a benchmark for others. By closing the gap between designer and end-user, we have been able to cater for the needs of individuals, providing unsurpassed value and service without compromising quality.
Our passion for designing and creating individual pieces was the driving force for our move from mass production to custom-made. A love for quality, attention to detail and unmatched customer service is the foundation of our philosophy.
At Kalfin Jewellery, we believe that each piece of jewellery should be as unique as the person wearing it. It should represent a memorable journey from design to the creation of the milestone it represents.

Loose Diamonds, Wedding & Engagement Rings FAQs
It's hard to know for sure if the diamond you are looking to buy is a good quality diamond or not. One thing to keep in mind is colour. Diamonds with higher colour grades are more likely to be of good quality.
A G colour or higher diamond is one of the best possible colours. You still need to consider clarity, cut and carat weight to ensure that what you're getting is a high-quality stone. The higher the values for each of those traits, the better the quality.
The final way you can determine if it's a good quality diamond is by its certification. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for diamond sellers to try and pass off a lower quality stone as a higher one.
That is why you must buy from someone who guarantees that their diamonds are certified. Not only will they be able to tell you the details of the certification, but they'll also have all the paperwork in hand to prove it.
There are four major factors to consider when buying diamonds, and they are branded the 4Cs: Cut, Colour, Clarity, and Carat. They determine the value of the diamond and can be used to compare the prices between different jewellery stores.
A good way to decide the value of a diamond you're looking at is by weighing it against these qualities using the 4 Cs.
The Carat Weight is the most commonly used method for determining a diamond's value. The more carats, the larger and more valuable it will be. However, this is not always true because the other 3 Cs also can determine how much a diamond is worth.
Colour (aka the diamond's hue) is determined by how much yellow or brown a diamond has. Therefore, diamonds' most desirable colour comes from those with no more than 25% of either colour. This way, their 'colourless' white appearance will go through.
Clarity, which refers to the number of imperfections present in a diamond, has a major impact on its value. Flaws like inclusions and blemishes can decrease the price of a diamond depending on how large they are. The best diamonds will be those with no flaws or ones that only have minor imperfections.
Cut quality is determined by how well polished the facets are and how well the diamond reflects light. The more sparkly a diamond is, the better its cut will be and the higher its quality will be. It's worth noting that even one small flaw will dramatically decrease a diamond's value.
If you look at diamonds of equal colour, cut, and clarity, a diamond with more carat weight will be worth the most.
You need to decide how much money you want to spend. Then you should think about the size of the diamond that you want. If it's bigger, it will cost more money and look better on your finger if your hands are small. Next, think about how clear the diamond is. The clearer it is, the more expensive it will be.
So, what do you do if you don't have a lot of money and want a nice diamond? First, you need to find something in the middle, not too small or too big. The size should be proportional to your hands.
A good rule of thumb is that it should fit on the first finger of your hand. If it's too big, it will look like a drop of water on your hand. If it's too small, then it will get lost on your hand and not be noticeable.
Consider buying a diamond online. I think that's a great idea! You're going to save so much time and also get exactly what you want.
If you use sites for diamond buying, all you have to do is adjust their diamond quality filters, and you can see exactly what diamond you can afford.
You can adjust those filters on the site, so you see only diamonds that fit your budget. You don't have to browse through hundreds of diamond rings like you would in a jewellery store.
You don't even need to know about the 4C's or anything about diamond qualities. Just adjust the filters as high as you can afford to go.
Diamond prices include every step involved in creating a glamorous, desirable gem. Price setting begins with the cost of the rough diamond, takes in expert cutting and polishing, grading and certification, wholesale and retail mark-ups. All this happens before the design inspiration that transforms loose diamonds into jewellery masterpieces.
Mining for rough diamonds
The fact is, it takes around 250 tons of earth is mined to produce a single one-carat diamond. The cost of these operations is high, and rewards are slim. The majority of diamonds (around 80%) are unsuitable to be further processed as gems. At this point, the diamond price is essentially set by the cost of mining the stone, which looks just like a pebble for all intents and purposes.
Cutting and polishing stones
After being traded for the first time, rough diamonds typically travel to a cutting and polishing centre. Of course, Antwerp in Belgium is well known as the city of diamonds. But today, there are many other centres around the world where rough diamonds are sawed into and polished into loose gemstones in the deft hands of expert cutters. A great deal of the rough diamond is lost during this process, for example:
A 0.97-carat diamond started as a diamond rough weighing 3.24 carats, and after being sawn, the rough weight was 2.58 carats.
A 1.10-carat diamond started as a diamond rough weighing 3.32 carats, and after being sawn, the rough weight was 2.55 carats.
A 1.60-carat diamond started as a diamond rough weighing 4.25 carats, and after being sawn, the rough weight was 3.84 carats.
The next time these loose diamonds are traded, the price will take into account the initial cost of the rough stone, gem volume lost during cutting and polishing, as well as the high-security transport and diamond cutter's fee.
Diamond grading and certification
The next step along the way is grading and certification. Only loose diamonds certified by a renowned organisation, such as GIA (Gemmological Institute of America), can be accurately priced. This is because diamond graders use an agreed set of measures to determine a loose diamond's quality. Most buyers are familiar with the 4Cs of diamond grading, which is an important part of diamond certification.
Each stone receives an internationally recognised grading certificate stating its features and quality. The cost of grading, including a copy of the certificate, is incorporated in the wholesale diamond price.
Wholesale diamond sales
Once graded, loose diamonds move to the global wholesale market. At this point, the gemstones that began life looking much like rubble are ready to become a lifetime investment. Perhaps as a gleaming diamond engagement ring centrepiece, desirable diamond earrings or a perfect pendant. Today, loose diamonds prices are typically driven by world markets, but many wholesalers still carry stock at a significant mark-up.
Retail diamond prices
Some manufacturing jewellers still design custom rings and other diamond pieces to order. But, after purchasing the loose diamond, jewellery retailers generally manufacture sale-ready pieces. These are the items you will see priced at a full mark-up in the jewellery shop window.
So that's how the price of your diamond is arrived at.
