Nick grew up in the picturesque countryside of the Coltswolds in England. Leaving school at 15 he headed to London and found a Jewellery apprenticeship with one of Hatton Gardens leading Jewellers. A few years later, working with a highly skilled team of Jewellers he was putting together extraordinary orders for the privileged few. One such client , A monarch and head of state who’s love of falconry had the team making hand engraved forged silver dagger blades with diamond encrusted solid gold handles sculpted into falcons.
“I recall one of the larger orders was for 40 individual hand made picture frames that could also be worn as pendants and/or brooches. 18ct gold with sprays of flowers adorned with diamonds, rubies and emeralds they were tremendously opulent and very expensive pieces. They were given to distinguished guests at the opening night of the clients recently renovated hotel in London!“
It wasn’t long before his love for Australia saw him settle in Brisbane opening up a Jewellery studio in Elizabeth street Brisbane, and offices by appointment in Australias capitals which see him travelling regularly meeting and greeting new and existing clients.
His passion for Argyle Pink diamonds has made him a frequent visitor to Western Australia where his loose diamond purchases are transformed into amazing pieces of jewellery.
Nick's trademarked brand of round brilliant diamonds, TripleEx H&A™, ‘The worlds most perfectly cut Hearts and Arrows Diamonds’™, are a cut above the modern ideal cut displaying sparkle and scintillation far superior to others. These diamonds are individually certified, numbered and presented in hand crafted timber boxes.
‘I love helping clients understand diamonds and then making an educated decision on what diamond and design is right for them. Seeing the delight on their faces when I show them a finished piece after hours of creating a unique item of jewellery for them is just fantastic.’
