In 1970, John and Dell Stone recognized there was a need for a more upmarket and prestigious jeweler in Brisbane. Unlike the many chain jewelers, John and Del’s desire was to specialize in manufacturing, creating individually handcrafted pieces for their clients. Their simple philosophy was to offer quality pieces, value for money and good honest service. Today, those simple values remain the core values of our business. In October of that same year, they opened their first store and began trading as Stones Diamond Ring Specialists.
