About Matthew Staff

For me, a perfect design comes from the heart and is as precious as the rare gems that make up the piece itself. A beautiful design is inspiring and provides a sense of wonder through its uniqueness and originality. You could say each design like its owner has its own distinctive personality. An exceptional design is the marriage of a perfect design executed with expert hand craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail; it is this combination that truly makes a design exquisite. The passion I have for jewellery and gemstones can be seen through my work, each exquisite piece has its own story and speaks for itself. I have been handcrafting fine jewellery in Brisbane for over 20 years and have been privileged to work with some amazing gemstones, many of which I have personally sourced from all over the world.

Rare gemstones are just breathtaking. I have travelled extensively from the gemstone cutting world centre of Idar-oberstein in Germany to the gem fields of Tanzania, Africa sourcing quality gemstones and researching quality cutting techniques. I am a qualified Gemmologist (FGAA)

When I was a boy I always fascinated with the wonders of earth science and geology. I like to think that the magical world of fine jewellery discovered me and I feel very privileged to have found a career that links all of my passions. Please enjoy these exhibits of my work.
