At Q Report, we want to support Australian manufacturing jewellers and put their skills and craftsmanship on display to the world. We feel that by raising awareness of the Aussie talent in our industry, consumers will be able to make better choices when buying and commissioning jewellery to ensure it is of the highest quality, rather than looking overseas for cheap and lower quality imports.

This will be the first in our semi-regular series of articles which show the design, development and manufacture of beautiful jewellery via step-by-step images and descriptions provided by the jewellers themselves.

In our first instalment, an Art Deco ring is designed and made by Rose & Crown Jewellers. Enjoy.

Photos and description provided by Rose & Crown Jewellers of Northcote, Victoria, Australia 3070.
