Design and Remounting

If your setting is out-dated or if you have inherited a piece of jewelry that just doesn't fit your personality, let us create a new piece you'll love to wear.

Pearl and Bead Restringing

Professional, traditional hand knotting of pearls or other beads. We use a double strand of strong silk thread.


Adrian can arrange for independent valuations for all your jewels by some of Australia's leading independent valuers.


No matter how big or small Circa AD Jewels will handle repairs; from a quick rethread for $40 to a patient search to replace a special stone, or arranging detailed restoration of a damaged antique brooch, our experience will assist all clients. Retaining the character of the original piece during repair is paramount.

Engraving and Embossing

A particularly personal area of our work, we handle both standard machine engraving and hand engraved work from coat of arms for signet rings, and monograms on jewellery, glassware and trophies; as well as gilt and embossing on leatherworks. We can also arrange bespoke fitted leather cases.

“We were treated to a “right royal” occasion with Adrian’s amazing visual presentation of the Queen’s Private Diamond Collection. His expert commentary and explanations were a fascinating insight into the magic, history and power of the Royal Jewels. We were all spellbound!”

“The audience greatly appreciated Adrian’s passion for the Queen’s diamonds, his detailed knowledge of the history and traditions of the British monarchy and his eloquent presentation style. Some beautiful samples from Adrian’s collection were so popular with the audience that Adrian had considerable difficulty packing all the pieces away at the end of the evening!”

Despite everything, I am managing to keep busy, and am walking to clients, standing 2 metres back, masked and collecting or delivering jewels. I’m getting very fit…one day I managed 40,867 paces (30kms)! It’s not normally this way […]
