History

3_stack_sml
Our proud heritage began in 1954, when aged 15, Ray McAlister started his apprenticeship as a diamond setter, later to become a master ring maker. 10 years later, Ray & June began our family Jewellery business in Collins St, Melbourne with the aim of providing exceptional jewellery, with integrity, and at realistic prices.

Our commitment to quality begins with the selection of the highest calibre precious metals and stones. Every piece is then individually hand made, using the crafts traditional techniques, long forgotten by many of today’s jewellers. This ensures not only a stunning, original diamond ring, but our customers can be assured their most treasured pieces will stand the test of time, often becoming family heirlooms for the next generation. When Ray’s son Shaun joined the business in 1986, these techniques were instilled during his apprenticeship, and remain a cornerstone of the business to this day.

We are delighted to see many of Ray’s original customers return with their children and grand children. We pride ourselves on our reputation, with “word of mouth” remaining our primary source of advertising.
