We attended the Christmas in July celebrations at Germani Jewellers in Elizabeth Street. The event was exactly as you would expect from such a quality jewellery store, with champagne flowing, great food and networking.
This exquisite jeweller is situated in The Sheraton on the Park and on show are timelessness pieces that are crafted to last forever.
All Germani pieces are marked by, elegance, beauty and individuality. Germani specializes in custom designs and remodelling.
Michel Germani is the Founder and CEO of GERMANI Jewellery. Michel describes his personal style as embodying “I’art d’etre unique”. Accurately so, no other word but ‘unique’ as well describes the jewellery produced by this most cosmopolitan of designers. Michel Germani, is a graduate of celebrated Gemmological Institute of America in Los Angeles in 1980. He was previously based in Belgium, at the Diamond Bourse in Antwerp, and later worked in Switzerland for the Saudis, prior to immigrating to Australia, where his main’s hallmark is producing special jewellery designs to suit the infinite variety of customers. Michel’s unrivalled skill dates back to the days when he made jewellery for prestigious customers such as the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia including a unique Diamond Necklace to Queen Noor of Jordan in 1984; A Brooch for the Duke and Duchess of Wellington for opening Skygarden in July 1987 in Sydney, Michel created this unique momento for the occasion based on the Castlereagh Street facade, is handcrafted in 18kt solid gold. Set with 41 round brilliant cut diamonds and six black opals from Lightning Ridge which was specially cut. The Duchess, needless to say, was delighted. Michel created a jewellery collection “RUBY, SAPPHIRE, EMERALD” for Elizabeth Taylor to launch with her Three Sparkling New Fragrances in 1994; The Rings and Perfumes were advertised on the National TV Show Sales of Century; Michel was first introduced to Princess Diana at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute Dinner Dance in Sydney in 1996; Michel was honoured to design and manufacture a pair of Blue Sapphire and Diamond Earrings which were delivered to the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Double Bay where the Princess was staying. Such expertise is very hard to question, as is the meticulous care taken by Germani and his staff in ensuring that every design is marked by Elegance, Beauty and Individuality. A piece of jewellery, after all, should be something very personal which reflects the quintessence of one’s personality.
