We went on a road trip! Last month, Gary, Trina, Joel and I took a day off work, and drove down to Canberra, to see Cartier’s exhibition of historical jewels on display at the National Gallery of Australia.  Established in 1847 in Paris, by Louis-François Cartier, Cartier is today an internationally recognised jewellery and watch manufacturer.

Last year Gary was tasked with making a commemorative plaque for a friend’s retirement.  Using some specimen grade ‘boulders’, Gary got on the power tools in his front yard.  His youngest son Liam, who is a keen photographer, captured some fantastic photos during the process. We hope you enjoy this gallery of images showing the transformation of a lump of

What colour is a sapphire? It is a simple enough question.  The mere mention of the word sapphire brings to mind the colours royal or cornflower blue – like Princess Diana’s famous sapphire ring, now worn by Kate Middleton – The Duchess of Cambridge.  What many people don’t realise is that sapphires come in almost every colour imaginable – blue, green, yellow, purple and pink.
