With Over 17 Years Experience In The Jewellery Industry, On April 1st 1997, House Of Harvey Was Conceived By Partners Bob And Alannah. Within Two Years This New Store Were Proud To Become Members Of Nationwide Jewellers, Australasia's Largest Jewellery Buying Group, And With The Commitment To Providing Our Clients And Community With A Greater Selection, Relocated To Our Current Position. Today, 16 Years Later, Two Other Dedicated Family Members Are Also Part Of The HoH Team, Together With A Loyal And Knowledgeable Sales And Service Team Creating A True Local FAMILY Business.
To achieve longevity in a small community requires more than creativity and expertise. Support and fund raising for our community; our Treasured Gems Rewards programme; seeking suppliers worldwide that offer unique pieces, with whom we may forge long term relationships, whilst maintaining affordability and quality; and keeping abreast of leading edge design and technology at industry events within Australia and abroad.
With opportunities provided by Nationwide Jewellers, in an alliance with the IJO, the largest jewellery buying group in the world, access has been gained to the Antwerp Diamond Broker programme, Antwerp being the Diamond buying capital of the World, where 80% of the world's diamonds are traded. As ADB members, the middleman is by-passed, and the best diamonds hand selected at exceptional prices. We have been both humbled and honoured to forge a relationship with Gabi and Jean Paul Tolkowsky, credited as the worlds finest diamond cutters, and part of the Tolkowsky 200 year Dynasty.
Nationwide has also provided the opportunity to follow a diamond from ‘Rough to Retail’, visiting the richest diamond mine in the world ~ the Jwaneng Diamond Mine in Botswana, touring the world's largest and most sophisticated rough diamond sorting and valuing operation ~ the Diamond Trading Centre, and visiting the Hearts and Arrows Cutting factory, which along with Tolkowsky, is a division of Exelco – a De Beers Site holder.
Members of the HoH Sales Team have completed: Diamond Grading with Australia's foremost authority on Diamonds, Mr Bill Sechos of Gem Studies Laboratories, and lecturer of Gemmology and Diamond Technology; design and drawing workshops with Australia's most awarded international Jewellery Designer, Mr Rex Steele Merten; and GIA Jewellery, Coloured Stone, Diamond & Pearl Diplomas.
House of HARVEY, strive to achieve above and beyond 'Your Family Jeweller' offering luxury wrapped in trust, from dedicated professionals.
